stashing
 n.— «“Stashing” is a term from the past that Tagliabue and his top lieutenants don’t want to see become a part of the modern-day NFL lexicon.…For the most part, after all, players on injured reserve are there with legitimate maladies. And for the most part, coaches would rather have those players on the field instead of in treatment.» —“Officials concerned with IR increase” EPSN.com Oct. 29, 2004.
