Week 11 referee assignments



This week, Walt Coleman, Scott Green and Alberto Riveron are off. Mike Carey is also off, but the rest of his crew is working with Bill Vinovich.

Kirk Dornan (BJ6) putting his shoes back on after being treated on the sideline last Sunday.

We have confirmed that there are two injury substitutions to report this week:

  • Head linesman George Hayward (on Bill Leavy’s crew) left the game last Sunday with a calf injury; Tom Stabile (Green’s crew) fills in.
  • Kirk Dornan (back judge on Carey’s crew) was seen being taped up during last week’s game and will be replaced this week by Rich Reels (Riveron’s crew). According to Jim Daopoulos (former official/supervisor), Dornan suffered from plantar fasciitis. (A what? A foot inflammation also known as “policeman’s foot.”)

Both should return to the lineup soon.
