Bud Dupree apologized to Russell Wilson over illegal hit

Russell Wilson

Bud Dupree said he offered an apology to Russell Wilson over his hit to the Seattle Seahawks quarterback during Week 2.

During Sunday’s game between the Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers, Dupree delivered what appeared to be a helmet-to-helmet hit on Wilson. Even though the play did not draw a penalty flag, there were more than a few people who thought Dupree might hear from the NFL in the form of a fine.

On Wednesday, Dupree said he had not yet heard from the league, though fines are typically given out on Fridays. Dupree also said he apologized to Wilson after the play, indicating he did not have malicious intent.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he was informed by the NFL that the hit was indeed illegal.

It’s surprising Dupree’s hit wasn’t flagged at the time. Dupree and Pittsburgh surely are glad it wasn’t.
