The Seahawks caught flak earlier this year when Russell Wilson, who appeared to suffer a blow that could have caused a concussion, immediately returned to the field after declining to enter the medical tent during a Nov. 9 game against the Cardinals. The NFL and NFLPA investigated the matter and decided to fine the Seahawks $100,000 as a result.
Additionally, according to a joint statement from the NFL and NFLPA, the Seahawks coaching and medical staffs will have to attend additional training on the concussion protocol.
From the statement:
The NFL and NFLPA have jointly reviewed the application of the Concussion Protocol to Russell Wilson. The results of the joint review determined there was a failure in the application of the protocol following the tackle of Mr. Wilson during the Seahawks-Cardinals game on November 9.
As a result, Seattle has been fined $100,000 and the coaching and medical staffs will be required to attend remedial training regarding the protocol.
Wilson, on the play in question, shook off the attempt to take him into the blue medical tent after being sent to the sidelines. CBSsports
