Seahawks won't lose National Football League draft pick for not reporting Richard Sherman's injury

Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network first reported as much on Tuesday.

The Seahawks received only a warning from the National Football League and won't lose a draft pick for failing to disclose a knee injury that cornerback Richard Sherman played through last season, a source confirmed.

According to the report, the violation was deemed to a result of rules misinterpretation and that if there are future violations by the Seahawks this incident will be taken into account.

The official said that no individual or entity which had sanctions dropped under the JCPOA was impacted by Friday's new sanctions. Iran confirmed it had tested a new missile but said it did not breach a nuclear accord reached with world powers or a U.N.


The news flies right in the face of a previous report that the Seahawks could lose a second-round pick for failing to properly disclose the injury before the game. Last September, they were fined $400,000 and lost a fifth-round pick for holding a practice with contact during OTAs.

The NFL's rule says, "If any player has a significant or noteworthy injury, it must be listed on the practice report, even if he fully participates in practice and the team expects that he will play in the team's next game".

"Honestly, I didn't realize we hadn't revealed it, " Carroll said during his press conference two days after the season ended in a divisional playoff loss to at Atlanta. The NFL also went along with Seattle's argument that when Sherman missed practice for what were listed as non-injury-related reasons he was getting a veteran's rest day. I don't know. He was fine about it.
