A strange dynamic has come into focus during the playoffs: Multiple teams have posted inaccurate injury information on their official websites.
It’s not that injuries are being hidden. It’s that actual injuries aren’t being accurately reported on team websites.
The most recent example came on Wednesday, when the information posted at the Bills’ official website, and in turn on the Chiefs’ official website, showed that Buffalo receiver Stefon Diggs did not practice due to an oblique injury. In reality, Diggs participated on a limited basis. (Eventually, the online errors were rectified.)
