Laptop with thousands of NFL players’ medical records is stolen from Redskins trainer – Los Angeles Times

The Washington Redskins have confirmed that a laptop containing the medical records of thousands of NFL players was stolen from a team trainer’s car in April.

According to the team, the laptop was password-protected but not encrypted – which would further help prevent unauthorized access.

“We have no reason to believe the laptop password was compromised,” the statement issued Wednesday said. “The NFL’s electronic medical records system was not impacted.”

Deadspin was the first to report the incident Wednesday.
