Seahawks warned on Richard Sherman injury reporting, won't face further punishment

Brittany BishopФев 15, 2017

The NFL warned the Seattle Seahawks for a violation of league rules for failing to disclose an injury to Richard Sherman during the 2016 season, NFL Media's Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday.

The report states the violation was determined to be a result of a misinterpretation of the rules, which explains the team getting away with just a warning. It seemed like a likely conclusion to the story after another NFL Network report from earlier this month stated that the Seahawks weren't expected to be punished heavily, if at all, after the league looked into the situation.

Richard Sherman's knee injury was never reported by the Seahawks at any point last season despite Sherman missing practice time at various points in the season.

Sherman never missed a game last season.

"I'm feeling like I screwed that up with not telling you that", Carroll said.

After the regular season ended, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll revealed that Sherman had been dealing with a medial collateral ligament injury, but it wasn't listed on any of the team's injury reports. "I don't even remember what game it was, it was somewhere in the middle ... I don't know how they do that, but they did". Same with Russell [Wilson], he was fine about it.

The New York Jets were fined $125,000 in 2009 for a violation regarding an injury to Brett Favre.
