It seems that Ed Hochuli may be considering taking a week off, based on a small change on his “official” website.
As of yesterday, the site proudly proclaimed that Ed would be working the Browns-Ravens game this Sunday. Today, that message changed to:
Week 3: Sunday, Sept. 21st – Check back Sunday Morning
I’ll admit — this might not mean anything. Still, I find it quite odd that they’d take down the game listing at this point in time.
Mike Pereira, the NFL’s supervisor of officials, has already come out and encouraged Ed to get back out there. Between that, Ed’s apology, no suspension from the league, and the listing on his site, I assumed he was good go to. Maybe not.
Anyone have any good information about this? If so, please leave it in the comments below.
Thanks, Tex! The week 3 page has been updated with that info. Let me know as you find others.
