Seahawks won't lose draft pick for concealing Richard Sherman's injury

As expected, the Seattle Seahawks received a slap on the wrist from the National Football League office for mishandling their weekly injury report last season.

After the team's Divisional round loss to the Atlanta Falcons, the Seahawks revealed that Sherman played through a knee injury, and it was the team's decision to not disclose the information. On Tuesday, Mike Garafolo reported that the Seahawks were simply issued a warning by the National Football League on Monday for violating the injury-reporting policy.

Sherman's knee injury was never listed on the team's injury report, although he was listed for other reasons in 11 weeks and missed practice time in 10 weeks.

Indeed, Sherman didn't miss a game nor did he miss any meaningful snaps because of an injury.


Back in September, Seattle lost a fifth-round pick for a violation of the regulations on offseason training activities.

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

After the season, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said in a 710 ESPN Seattle interview that Sherman "dealt with a significant knee [injury] the whole second half of the season". Same with Russell [Wilson], he was fine about it. "I don't know how they do that, but they did".

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