NEW YORK -- The NFL fined the Baltimore Ravens $20,000 Friday for not listing safety Ed Reed on the team's injury report.

Reed publicly acknowledged his right shoulder injury Oct. 17, a few days before the Ravens played Houston and said it could be affecting his play. The Pro Bowl safety played during practices and games after the injury occurred.

The league he should have been listed on the injury report with a shoulder injury and was 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." The rule covers players the team is certain will play in upcoming games.

Reed has played in every game this season. He has 30 tackles, two interceptions -- including a 34-yard return for a touchdown -- and seven passes defenced.

Washington and Buffalo were fined $20,000 each for similar infractions last week.

The Redskins were fined for not properly updating media on quarterback Robert Griffin III's status during a game against Atlanta on Oct. 7. He left with a head injury that turned out to be a mild concussion.

The Bills failed to list defensive end Mario Williams on the injury report while he was being treated for a sprained left wrist. Williams said on Oct. 3 that the wrist had been bothering him for weeks and limiting his play.
