NFL Player Husain Abdullah Penalized For Praying, NFL Says Officials Were Wrong

During Monday night’s game against the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs player Husain Abdullah was penalized for falling to his knees in prayer after scoring a touchdown. But the NFL is now saying officials were wrong for enforcing the 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

“Abdullah should not have been penalized. Officiating mechanic is not to flag player who goes to ground for religious reasons,” NFL spokesman Michael Signora tweeted on Tuesday morning.

“Rule 12, Section 3, Article 1 (d) states ‘players are prohibited from engaging in any celebrations or demonstrations while on the ground.’ However, the officiating mechanic in this situation is not to flag a player who goes to the ground as part of religious expression, and as a result, there should have been no penalty on the play,” Signora also explained in a statement.

The Chiefs safety was a good sport about it all, in fact, he told reporters after the game that he believes he was penalized for first sliding to his knees, not bowing in prayer. Signora says Abdullah will not be fined.

Khloe is now the latest Kardashian/Jenner sister to kick start a cosmetics line. Apparently, the reality star and expecting mother trademarked paperwork for “KOKO Kollection by Khloé Kardashian” and “KOKO Kollection.” Per the report, “her application covers a broad range of makeup merch.”

The chatter comes just days after reports surfaced that Kourtney Kardashian also trademarked makeup lines “Kourt” and “2Die4Kourt.” Yes, folks; this means Kim, Kylie, Kourtney AND Khloe will have makeup products available for purchase.

It’s one thing for Kim and Kylie to jump head first into the cosmetics game, after all, makeup and beauty has been their brand for years. But Kourtney doesn’t strike us as a cosmetics girl, rather, an interior designer. Maybe she should jump into the decor world. But we digress.

As for Khloe we ask, simply: WHY? What more can or will she do that hasn’t already been done? Is makeup a large part of her brand? No, but it is a pay check.

It’s unclear when the soon-to-be-mom plans on launching the line, but our guess is not in the upcoming months; for she is due this Spring.
