Earlier this week, the Seahawks asked the NFL whether Jabaal Sheard‘s hit on Rees Odhiambo was legal. Apparently, it was.

The Colts linebacker was not fined for elbowing Odhiambo in the chest during an interception return.

Odhiambo was hospitalized overnight after experiencing shortness of breath in the locker room after Sunday’s game. He was diagnosed with a bruised sternum but returned to practice Wednesday.

The Seahawks left tackle will play Sunday.

  1. Of course he wasn’t he’s a Colt, one of Roger’s Super Six.

  2. For those of you who haven’t seen the tape and are interested in the truth, please watch the tape. Sheard hit him with his shoulder. It was a clean play. That’s why there was no flag. That’s why the league review, which includes super slow motion video from multiple angles showed no foul. Those of you who are living in a fantasy world, more power to you. Who needs facts?

    hmmm..remember when browner hit green in nov 2014 with a totally clean hit and the pats had a pick 6 stolen away from them?

    charger fan, eh?

    funny..certain rules are applied to 31 teams and a special set to the pats

    been going in for years

    if sheard was still playing for ne,there is no doubt he would be fined or suspended

  4. OMG, Cheaties fans complaining about OTHER teams getting passes for cheating is the height of hypocrisy! Are you kidding me?! Talk about projecting…

  5. I didn’t see the hit, but I do think the NFL needs to look at this. They already opted to change things so you can’t just run up and attack the QB during an interception return. I remember when Packers Left Tackle Chad CLifton was badly hurt by a blindside block completely away from the play by Warren Sapp. Not illegal but not necessary. Football is already a violent game. Yeah you can get in a shot sometimes, but maybe its better not to try to kill the other guy just because you can.

    I agree with you 100%. The league needs to get rid of unnecessary hits. This particular play wasn’t a flagrant hit at all. Like you said, you didn’t see the hit. It wasn’t blind side. It wasn’t a bit dirty. It was about as clean a hit as Sheard could have made. It was just a fluke injury. It was initially reported as a heart related injury, but that report turned out to be a false report. That’s why all the hysteria. It was a false report. We should be upset with the false report, not the clean hit.
