News: Injury

Seattle could avoid major punishment

Sunday, February 5, 2017 10:57 AM EST
The Seattle Seahawks are unlikely to be penalized heavily by the National Football League - and could escape punishment altogether - despite failing to disclose CB Richard Sherman's knee injury during the regular season, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The issue was never listed on an official injury report even though head coach Pete Carroll admitted at the end of the year that Sherman had been dealing with a minor MCL problem. Sherman did not miss any game time and even participated in the Pro Bowl at the end of the season.
