Cheap Seattle Seahawks Jersey Near Me

SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks’ bad luck with injuries continues.

Starting cornerback Shaquill Griffin left two plays into Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons to be evaluated for a possible concussion. He has yet to return, which has pressed Byron Maxwell into action at right cornerback.
Seattle’s secondary was already missing Richard Sherman and strong safety Kam Chancellor. The Seahawks lost Sherman (Achilles) and likely Chancellor (neck) to season-ending injuries in Week 10 vs. Arizona.

The Seahawks brought back Maxwell, a former Seattle starter, after losing Sherman. Neiko Thorpe, mainly a special-teams player for Seattle, has played in some sub-packages against Atlanta.
The Seahawks also have lost running back Mike Davis for the remainder of the game to a groin injury. He was making his Seahawks debut after being promoted from the practice squad last week and had given Seattle’s offense a spark before leaving after the first possession of the third quarter. Davis had two receptions for 41 yards and six carries for 18 yards while serving as Seattle’s lead running back before he went down at the start of the third quarter.

Eddie Lacy and J.D. McKissic are Seattle’s other available running backs with Thomas Rawls inactive as a healthy scratch.

MINNEAPOLIS — The NFL handed down a one-game suspension without pay to Vikings strong safety Andrew Sendejo for his hit on Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace on Sunday.

The league says the hit was a violation of safety-related playing rules, in which Rule 12, Section 2, Article 6 (i) states, “there shall be no unnecessary roughness. This shall include, but will not be limited to: (i) using any part of a player’s helmet or facemask to butt, spear, or ram an opponent violently or unnecessarily.”
On the second play of Baltimore’s second drive, quarterback Joe Flacco threw a short pass to Wallace, and the receiver was quickly wrapped up and in the process of being tackled by Minnesota cornerback Xavier Rhodes. Wallace’s left knee was almost touching the ground when he was hit near the head and neck area by Sendejo.

Wallace’s helmet came off after contact was made. The receiver lay on the ground for several moments before heading to the sideline with trainers. He was put in the concussion protocol and later ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh declined comment when asked about the suspension.

NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan handed down the suspension on Monday afternoon and gave his reasoning in a letter to Sendejo.

Mike Wallace was knocked out of the game Sunday by a shot to the head from Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo in the first quarter.

Mike Wallace was knocked out of the game Sunday by a shot to the head from Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo in the first quarter.

“The violation was flagrant and warrants a suspension because it could have been avoided, was violently directed at the head and neck area and unreasonably placed both you and an opposing player at risk of serious injury,” the letter read.

Coach Mike Zimmer defended Sendejo’s hit during his Monday press conference under the belief that Wallace established himself as a runner.

“I think the receiver took five steps after he caught the ball and I think [Sendejo] hit him with a glancing blow,” Zimmer said. “He established position as a runner, took two extra steps. Xavier was trying to pull the ball out, which he ended up doing. The guy went down a little bit, but in my opinion, [Wallace] was a runner.”

Sendejo has up to three business days to appeal the suspension, per the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement. Under the terms of the suspension, the safety will eligible to return to the active roster on Monday, Oct. 30, one day after Minnesota plays Cleveland in London.
