Seahawks issued warning for violation of Injury Report Policy

Seahawks issued warning for violation of Injury Report Policy”

Deemed a "misinterpretation of rules" per Garafolo, the Seahawks are facing no further discipline on the matter unless a similar situation arises in the future.

Seattle did not disclose Richard Sherman's knee injury on the injury report last season.

The team could have faced a fine or loss of a draft pick for not disclosing Sherman's injured medial collateral ligament, but the National Football League opted for leniency. Last September, they were fined $400,000 and lost a fifth-round pick for holding a practice with contact during OTAs. 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.

The controversy didn't begin until after the season, when Pete Carroll revealed that his star cornerback played a substantial chunk of the season with an MCL injury. In 10 of those weeks, he missed practice time, but the Seahawks listed the reason as "non-injury related".

The NFL has issued a warning to the Seattle Seahawks for their injury reporting ploicy violation regarding Richard Sherman.

"I'm feeling like I screwed that up with not telling you that", Carroll told reporters. "He never missed anything, I guess, is probably why". "I don't know how they do that, but they did".
