ACC model for sharing injury updates works – mostly

By Joedy McCreary/The Associated Press

The Atlantic Coast Conference is setting the standard this season when it comes to sharing player injury information.

Still, some say the conference guidelines would work even better if all ACC coaches participated fully in the process that they themselves developed.

Two days before conference games, ACC schools are obligated to release lists of their injured players.

There are concerns about the process, mainly that nothing can be done to a coach who chooses not to comply.

Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris says coaches “sandbag. There ain’t no wondering. That’s just part of being a coach.”

But ACC Associate Commissioner for Football Operations Michael Kelly believes the process works, and most coaches agree.

Kelly says the coaches have enough respect for each other to follow their own guidelines.
