Week 15 referee assignments



This week, Ron Winter’s crew is off. Bill Vinovich will head Gene Steratore’s crew and Steratore has the week off.

Tom Stephan, the line judge injured two weeks ago is scheduled to work the Lions-Cardinals game. Walt Anderson’s side judge, Michael Banks, is out with a broken foot, and Jeff Lamberth is assigned to the crew.

The line judge vacancy caused by a retirement on Scott Green’s crew is usually filled by a member of the crew that is off. This week, Tom Symonette will pull double duty this week, working the Thursday game with his crew, and going to Toronto for Sunday.
