Seahawks Did Violate Concussion Protocol With Russell Wilson: Will Likely Be Fined

The Seattle Seahawks violated the NFL’s concussion protocol Thursday night when they allowed Russell Wilson to re-enter their game against the Arizona Cardinals without going to the locker room and being cleared by a team doctor and an independent physician, a source close to the situation told ESPN.

The NFL said on Friday a review is underway for a possible violation of the league’s concussion policy Thursday night when quarterback Russell Wilson was sent off the field for a test.

The Seahawks are expected to face consequences because once an official removed Wilson from the game to be examined, the star quarterback was required to go through the protocol, and he did not.
The NFL and NFL Players Association will jointly review the situation, interview members of the Seahawks organization early this week and come to a decision within the next couple of weeks, according to a source.
A league spokesman told ESPN that the NFL has not conducted any interviews yet, so it has not reached any conclusions regarding Wilson and the protocol.
The Seahawks can be fined up to $150,000, although it’s unclear what their penalty will be. The NFL announced Friday that it was conducting a “thorough review” of the situation. ESPN
