The Cincinnati Bengals have announced they have placed DE Jimmy Verdon (knee) on the Non Football Injury list. Verdon was injured while playing in NFL Europa.

If he was hurt during NFLE, how can it be a "Non-football injury?" :shrug:

maybe he was like having a glass of wine after or before agame?

sounds like a question for "Dr. Doom"!!!!

NFL Europe is not the NFL.. by a long shot!

Its far away. Too far to go to games for sure.

NFL event injury = football injury

an injury anywhere else is consider non-football related

He sprained his lederhosen while trekking in the Alps trying to find the Lost Horn of Riccola.

The NFL is clearly already in denial that NFL Europa ever existed. They are distancing themselves from being involved with a failure.
