The Seahawks started their Sunday with positive injury news, with several players, including DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, able to play despite coming into the weekend listed as questionable.
And while Lockett and Metcalf both got through the game OK, each scoring touchdowns in a 27-13 victory, the Seahawks didn't come out of the win completely unscathed.
Outside linebacker Darrell Taylor, who was also questionable due to groin injury, was active to start the game, but quickly came out of the game and was unable to return.
"He just couldn't hang," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "He tried, it was a gallant effort to get out there and go. He's got a hip/groin thing that's bothering him. It isn't a real serious injury, but he's not through it yet. He thought he could make it, he went and started and tried, but then he couldn't so we had to pull him out. I don't know what that means for this week, I have no idea."
In a bit of positive news, safety Ryan Neal's apparent fourth-quarter injury turned out only to be cramps in both hamstrings. Neal came out of the game after making a tackle, then tried to return on the next series, only to have to be helped off before the first play.
"He was cramping," Carroll said. "Both hamstrings—that bugger, he goes back in the game—he had both hamstrings cramping, and he tried to stiff his way back onto the field of play."
Center Austin Blythe left the game with a knee injury that Carroll said was not particularly serious, but as a precaution the Seahawks went with backup Kyle Fuller the rest of the way.
"He got a little knee sprain," Carroll said. "He could have gone back in, and we said, let's wait and held him off to (play) only in an emergency. Kyle did a great job to step in."
Guard Gabe Jackson returned from a two-game absence at started at right guard, but was spelled at times by Phil Haynes. Carroll said that was not injury related, just a move to keep Jackson fresh after missing some time.
