Seahawks Reportedly Issued Warning for Not Reporting Richard Sherman Injury

The Seattle Seahawks are getting away with just a warning for not listing Richard Sherman's knee injury on the injury report past year, according to a report from ESPN.

A few weeks ago, the National Football League (or someone who is very familiar with their inner workings) strategically leaked that the Seahawks might be docked a second-round pick for not putting Sherman on the injury report.

The violation was determined to be the result of a misinterpretation of the policy's reporting requirements, a source told ESPN's Adam Caplan. In 10 of those weeks, he missed practice time, but the Seahawks listed the reason as "non-injury related".

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll revealed to 710 ESPN Seattle's "Brock and Salk" two days after the team's playoff loss to Atlanta that Sherman dealt with a "significant" MCL injury during the second half of the season. He did not say specifically when Sherman suffered the injury (and Sherman never mentioned it during the season, as well).

The fall armyworm is new to South Africa‚ meaning no pesticide has been registered for use‚ and proven successful‚ in fighting it. Zambia has used planes to spray crops with insecticides, but much more will have to be done to effectively combat the pest.

The NFL's official rules stipulate teams are required to inform the league, opponents, media and broadcast partners of any player injuries on a weekly basis.

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

"I'm feeling like I screwed that up with not telling you that", Carroll said in a January news conference. I don't know. He was fine about it. Same with Russell [Wilson], he was fine about it.
