EAGLES LINEBACKER Stewart Bradley was injured during an intra-squad scrimmage and the media wanted details. When the team wouldn't provide information, a few reporters called Bradley's cell phone, as well as his agent.
Bradley tore his ACL and will likely miss the entire upcoming season, the journalists reported. Coach Andy Reid was fired up. At the media, that is.
"Some of your colleagues here decided that they would go to the players and/or other personnel here and ask about injuries," Reid said to the media the day after Stewart was injured. "I made a pact with you guys when I first got here that I would disclose to you the injuries -- just stay away from the players, stay away from other personnel in the organization, and I would take care of you with that. That part was breached."
He wouldn't say anymore, and he refused to talk to the media about any other injuries to players.
Does Reid have the right to be upset with the media? Or were the journalists just doing their job?
