Seahawks clearly violated concussion protocol; what will NFL do about it?

It’s obvious that the Seahawks violated the concussion protocol when allowing quarterback Russell Wilson to return to Thursday night’s game without a concussion evaluation. The question is whether the NFL will do anything about it.

Adam Schefter of ESPN report that the Seahawks “are expected to face consequences” for the failure. Even if they do, what will they be?

Previously, every situation involving a player who did not receive a concussion evaluation when he apparently should have did not result in discipline for anyone. Instead, the league would find a reason to excuse the irregularity by finding some obscure loophole in the rules and issuing a “don’t do that again” admonition.

Year after year the seahawks violate a policy and not much happens, the past 3 years;

Get caught running contact drills in OTA's
4+ players get caught using PED's

And now this...

And, hold everyone on every play since the refs will only call 2 or 3 a game.

When they say safety first, what they mean is "safety of our image" first. The hags are one of the darlings of the league, so nothing happens to them, unless there's a lot of outcry against it. Then Rogey, with a heavy heart, will have to do what he must to "protect the shield."
