NFL fines Atlanta Falcons, Arthur Smith for failing to disclose Bijan Robinson illness before Week 7

Dec 22, 2023

The NFL has fined the Atlanta Falcons $75,000 and head coach Arthur Smith $25,000 for "violating the NFL Injury Report Policy" in regard to running back Bijan Robinson's status ahead of their Week 7 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Robinson played 13 snaps against the Buccaneers in Week 7 and had only one carry for 3 yards. He was not on the Falcons' injury report before the game and questions arose about his limited usage.

During a halftime interview, Smith said that Robinson was “just not feeling all that great" and afterward said there was "nothing to it." Robinson himself said a headache that began Saturday night worsened into Sunday.
