National Football League reviewing Russell Wilson's concussion test in Thursday's game

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will miss the remainder of the National Football League season with a ruptured Achilles, head coach Pete Carroll said after Thursday's 22-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

The NFL confirmed it is reviewing whether the Seattle Seahawks followed proper concussion protocol with quarterback Russell Wilson.

Wilson was asked about the hit after the game, and he told reporters it wasn't a big deal.

"I was just trying to feel my jaw, I was like 'aw man, it's stuck.' I think I was laying on the ground for a second just trying to feel my jaw and I think Walt (Anderson, the referee) thought maybe I was a little injured or something like that". Anderson was doing his job; if he suspected Wilson might have suffered a concussion, it's his right to have the medical staff perform a concussion check.

"There's no coming back from that until you get surgery".

What happened? Wilson left the field after the hit from Karlos Dansby.

He returned to the field immediately. He went into the medical tent to be evaluated for a concussion, but didn't stay in there long enough for the door to even close. We know this because he went into the tent alone and emerged seconds later. I was fine though.

Having played their Week 10 game on Thursday night, Wilson and the Seahawks will have plenty of time to rest before returning to the field in Week 11 when they'll host the Falcons on Monday night. And then I finally went over through the whole concussion stuff.
