Frank Clark held out of Seahawks practice Friday

Thursday’s Seahawks practice featured a melee that ended with defensive end Frank Clark ejected from the session after punching tackle Germain Ifedi in the face.

Ifedi left with trainers after Clark’s punch reportedly drew blood and he did not take part in Friday’s practice. Clark was also on the sideline for the workout and he was wearing a brace on his left knee that wasn’t there in the past. Defensive coordinator Kris Richard made it clear that Clark’s behavior the day before was part of the reason he wasn’t on the field, though.

“It’s part of it. That’s part of it. It’s a disciplinary action,” Richard said, via Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune. “You earn the right to be out here on the field with us. You earn the right to come out here and compete. And decisions that are going to be detrimental to us, then we certainly have to handle it internally.”

There’s no word of any other internal discipline that Clark, who has disappointed the Seahawks in the past, may be facing as a result of a fight that has already had greater ramifications than most training camp tussles.

  1. “Fistfighting Frank” needs to use that RAGE in a live game constructively not on a teammate in practice.

  2. PFT and the Seahawks are sure making this kid out to be the only bad guy(not saying he wasn’t involved). Last year Ifedi got into multiple fights with the whole Defensive line so I’m not surprised someone punched him in the face. Regardless of the elementary stuff of who started it, Clark does not need to learn how to control some of that aggression. If it has to happen anywhere its good that it’s happening in camp and not in games that matter.

    Spot on comment there. He was a terror in Ann Arbor to any and all females.

  4. He got ten sacks last season, sadly that makes him a “made man” in the NFL and he can do whatever he wants, a big contract is waiting for him no matter what.

    11.5, and he never hit anyone except a whole bunch of OLs

  7. I can’t believe how this guy just walked into the league compared to so many others. That woman he beat down had a baseball sized lump on her face. You can still find the pics by a search. I guess some teams get preferred treatment by the media and of course everyone’s favorite Goodell while others don’t.

    Seattle can’t even get a SB, and it has much milder winters than New York! Hardly Goodell’s
    “favorite.” Seattle has one of the toughest schedules the past 5 years! But why bother with real facts. Stay off the Donny T juice!

    Uh, No Clark only had 10.0 sacks last year w/ 1FF…. And he has hit plenty of people outside of Germain Ifedi, including beating his own mother in College, he Punched A WOMEN SQUARE IN THE MOUTH just for NOT SLEEPING W/HIM, Then he violently assaults his own teammate a few days ago over a pass rushing drill, real high character guy, GM JS & HC PC Sure do know how to pick em !!!!! SEA has had terrible drafts the last 3-4yrs, Schnider keeps it up he will be unemployed.
