NFL Handicapping: League decides to ditch probable tag on injury report

08.22.2016     08:58 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Well figuring out who is and isn't playing on Sundays just got a little more difficult. The NFL announced that it will no longer use "probable" for a player's status but instead use "questionable," "doubtful," or "out." It sounds as if those players once listed as "probable" -- a vast majority of which always played -- will now be "questionable."

Two days before kickoff, teams must list injured players as "questionable," "doubtful" or "out" for that game.

"Questionable" players, per the policy, are "uncertain" to play. Previously, the definition was that there was a 50 percent likelihood of playing.

"Doubtful" means the player is "unlikely" to participate in the game, and "out" means he "will not play." The previous definition for "doubtful" was a 75 percent likelihood that he would not play.
