The Seattle Seahawks could be facing up to a $ 150,000 fine for violating the NFL‘s concussion protocol Thursday night in a 22-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.
The team allowed quarterback Russell Wilson to re-enter the game without going through the league’s concussion protocol.
Per Schefter, “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 protocol dictates that Wilson should have gone to the locker room to be “cleared by a team doctor and an independent physician” before returning.
