If there was a silver lining in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll described as baffling, it is that the Seahawks appear to have come out of the game relatively healthy.
Defensive tackle Jordan Hill was the only player who didn't finish the game because of an injury, leaving with what Carroll called a quad strain. No timeline was given on Hill's recovery.
Middle linebacker Bobby Wagner briefly left the game with a strained pectoral muscle, but returned the next time Seattle's defense took the field and was able to finish the game.
"He finished the game," Carroll said. "He's sore, but he finished the game."
The Seahawks played the game without several players who were inactive because of injuries, most notably running back Marshawn Lynch, but running back Fred Jackson, who was listed as questionable for the game, was able to play despite suffering a high-ankle sprain in Monday's win over Detroit. Jackson rushed twice in the game for 5 yards and caught three passes for 29 yards. Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane also returned to the lineup Sunday after missing last week's game with a groin injury.
