PAIN TRAIN

Injuries are a part of football, but these players have been hit particularly hard.

The NFL has fined the Baltimore Ravens $20,000 for not listing safety Ed Reed on the team's injury report with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, a violation of the league's procedures for reporting injury information.

Reed publicly acknowledged the injury on Oct. 17, before the Ravens' game against Houston, and said it could be affecting his play. The Pro Bowl safety fully participated in practices and games after the injury occurred, but the league said he should have been listed on the injury report with a shoulder injury and fully participating in practice.

The NFL's policy on injury reports states that players ''with significant or noteworthy injuries must be listed on the report, even if the player takes all the reps in practice.''

Washington and Buffalo were fined for similar infractions last week.
