Pelini said he was upset with reporters who called Fisher's family and high school coach to get confirmation of the injury.
"The kid was still on the [operating] table last night, and people were calling the family," he said. "That's crossing the line."
Pelini said he should be the person to release injury news.
He said he initially decided to ban the media to send a message that reporters should respect his policies. But he said a number of reporters told him that they must answer to their bosses and would continue to do whatever it takes to get a story.
