ACC first to model after NFL

ACC makes change to injury reports...
It was released at the ACC Media Days that the Atlantic Coast Conference will be the first to implement NFL-style injury reports. What does that mean?

Coaches only have to address injuries twice a week, helping to identify players who are out for the season or looking at surgery. At the end of each Monday and Thursday practice each coach will provide status of injured players, but not specifics.

The five categories are defined as:

Definitely will play; Probable; Questionable; Doubtful; and Out

Both the ACC and its coaches agree it will benefit coaches and spokespersons who will no longer have to answer daily questions about player injuries or their specifics. Even though no coaches seemed opposed, the rule change is not subject to enforcement.
