Russell Wilson Had Jaw Realigned Following Karlos Dansby Hit

Nov 18, 2017 10:36 AM

Russell Wilson had his jaw realigned following the hit he took in last Thursday's game by Karlos Dansby.

Wilson said he feels fortunate to have avoided suffering a fracture.

"It was pretty close," he said Friday. "The doctor was like, 'Man, any harder, we probably [would have] had to wire your mouth shut,' so that was a good thing that didn't happen."

Dansby was fined $18,231 by the NFL.

Wilson was sent off the field by referee Walt Anderson to be evaluated for a possible concussion then returned after missing one play without being examined, which led the NFL to launch an investigation into whether the team followed proper protocol.

Seahawks Likely To Be Fined For Russell Wilson Concussion Review

Nov 12, 2017 10:30 AM

A source close to the situation said the Seattle Seahawks violated the NFL's concussion protocol when allowing Russell Wilson to re-enter the game on Thursday.

Wilson should have gone to the locker room and been cleared by a team doctor and an independent physician.

The Seahawks are expected to face consequences because once an official removed Wilson from the game to be examined.

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.

The Seahawks can be fined up to $150,000, although it's unclear what their penalty will be. T

Seahawks Expected To Face Scrutiny Over Russell Wilson Concussion Test

Nov 10, 2017 9:52 AM

The Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson are expected to face scrutiny over a possible violation of NFL policy when he was sent off the field for a concussion check.

Wilson absorbed a hit to the chin from linebacker Karlos Dansby. Wilson did not show any obvious signs of a concussion, but referee Walt Anderson invoked his right to send Wilson off the field for a test.

With backup Austin Davis in the game, NBC's broadcast showed Wilson running to the sideline and then sitting down in the area where the tent would be pulled over him. But Wilson got back up before medical officials had a chance to join him and then replaced Davis after one play.

After the game, Wilson said he wasn't concussed on the hit and felt "completely clear."

Colts Release Vontae Davis

Nov 9, 2017 12:38 PM

The Indianapolis Colts released Vontae Davis after it was announced he would undergo season-ending groin surgery.

Davis decided to move forward with the surgery after seeking a second opinion.

Davis said he felt disrespected when the Colts left him behind for last weekend's game at Houston.

"I had a groin tear that I dealt with," Davis said. "I got different opinions on it. One doctor said I should have had surgery, other doctor told me to let it heal. I took the let-it-heal approach. I came back, and probably came back a little too early, and in the process I probably hurt my teammates."

When asked why Pagano said it was a non-injury situation, Davis said, "I can't really control what Coach P said."
