Rule Changes For 2012

There is a good article at the official Detroit Lions website, outlining some of the rule changes coming out of the league meetings that are going on in Atlanta. While the article itself deals more with the fact that the owners voted to move the trade deadline back a couple of weeks (after week 6, to after week 8), I thought this rule amendment was much more significant.

Cooley’s Season Ends, Rumors Swirl

Yesterday, the Redskins surprisingly announced that they had put Chris Cooley on the injured reserve list. I say surprising only because when the veteran tight end broke his finger last week – there was no talk of it being the end to his season.

The decision is likely due to Cooley’s multiple injuries and not just his latest, a mangled finger. Captain Chaos has been nursing a knee injury all year, and while he was playing through the injury, he never seemed to get all the way back to firing on all cylinders. Regardless of the reasons behind the decision to put Cooley on IR, he’s there, and speculation begins to mount as to whether or not he will ever see the field as a Washington Redskin again.
