RENTON, Wash. (AP) --- The Seattle Seahawks will not face any suspensions for
the melee that broke out at the conclusion of Sunday's loss to Jacksonville.
The league is still reviewing the fracas that broke out in the closing moments
of Jacksonville's 30-24 victory for potential discipline, but no suspensions
will be coming. Michael Bennett, Sheldon Richardson and Quinton Jefferson were
all flagged for personal fouls. Jefferson and Richardson were both ejected, and
all three should face hefty fines for their involvement in the ugly conclusion.
Jefferson attempted to climb into the stands after fans threw what appeared to
be bottles at him as he was leaving the field. He was pulled back by team staff.
The Jaguars issued a statement Monday they were reviewing video and were
conducting interviews with spectators and security staff in the area to
identify those involved. The Jaguars said those involved may lose the right to
purchase future tickets or have their season tickets revoked.
