An Oklahoma man has been charged with manslaughter almost a year after a collision killed former NFL player Dennis Byrd.
Rogers County court records indicate the charge was filed Wednesday against 18-year-old Zachary Reed of Claremore. The records show a warrant was issued for Reed’s arrest but don’t indicate whether he is represented by an attorney.
Byrd was 50 when he died Oct. 15 after a two-vehicle crash north of Claremore, a Tulsa suburb. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said at the time that a northbound vehicle driven by Reed veered into the oncoming lane and struck a vehicle driven by Byrd.
Byrd played for the University of Tulsa and later was a defensive lineman for the New York Jets. A neck injury ended his career in 1992.
What has gone right: Russell Wilson continues to cover for the flaws that come with a patchwork offensive line and an inconsistent running game. Chris Carson was a nice surprise at running back, but the 2017 seventh-round pick suffered what is Matt Barkley Jersey believed a serious ankle injury in last Sunday night’s rout of Indianapolis.
What has gone wrong: The Seahawks are struggling Joel Ward Jersey to stop rushing attacks, with their first four opponents averaging 134 yards on the ground. As referenced above, Wilson is under heavy pressure far too frequently.
What’s next: The Seahawks usually start the season slow — they have a 2-10 road record in September since Pete Carroll became head coach in 2010. Seattle needs to get out of that malaise quickly heading into Sunday’s game against the surprising Rams.
