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

15 February 2017

The Seattle Seahawks are getting away with just a warning for not listing Richard Sherman's knee injury on the injury report a year ago, according to a report from ESPN. That second-rounder, according to Mortensen, would have been a stiffening of the punishment the National Football League handed down to the Seahawks in September for their latest violation of offseason practice rules, which was a fifth-round pick. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll later said at the end of the season for the team that Sherman was in fact dealing with "a significant knee injury" during the second half of the season.

The Indianapolis Colts didn't report some of Andrew Luck's injuries two years ago and they weren't punished, so it never made sense that the National Football League would punish the Seahawks when Sherman was seemingly in no danger of not playing through his injury.

According to the report, there would be three construction phases spanning 3.5 years, with the first to begin in September. Asked about the report, Videgaray told Reuters: "I played no part whatsoever in drawing up the president's speech".

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

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported in January Seattle faced the loss of a second-round draft pick as a worst-case scenario from the violation. He also played in the Pro Bowl, making an interception, which added to the team's defense that Sherman's injury was not one that ever put him in danger of missing any playing time. "He was OK, so I don't know". He didn't miss anything. Still, it was not reported by the team.
