The Seahawks held on for a thrilling victory over the 49ers on Sunday, but they did see a couple of key players leave the 30-23 victory with injuries.
Safety Jamal Adams, who finished last season with a shoulder injury that required surgery in the offseason, injured the same shoulder, though the severity of the injury was not yet known, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.
"He sprained his shoulder today, the one that was operated on. I don't know any updates other than that."
The Seahawks also finished the game without two offensive linemen who started the game, with right tackle Brandon Shell (shoulder) and guard Kyle Fuller (ankle) both leaving the game with injuries. Fuller, who was playing in place of an injured Damien Lewis, was replaced by rookie Jake Curhan, while rookie Stone Forsythe took over for Shell at right tackle.
"Brandon Shell, it's the same shoulder that was bothering him, just aggravated again," Carroll said. "Not a whole lot worse than it was last week, but he didn't finish last week either."
On Fuller, Carroll said, "He sprained his ankle. I don't know any update on that either."
Carroll added of the two rookie linemen finishing the game, "We should note that Jake Curhan and Forsythe got a chance to play in this game, and they did a nice job to help us finish the game, coming through, a couple pups out there. That was pretty special."
Defensive tackle Bryan Mone also injured his knee, but was able to return to game.
"Mone had a knee injury, he put a brace on and was OK to go back," Carroll said. "Toughed that out for sure."
Carroll said running back Alex Collins, who was inactive due to an abdomen injury that he has been playing through for much of the season, should be back next week.
"He was close," Carroll said. "This week with three (running backs) who were in question, we just went with the guys who practice the best this week who were the most healthy during practice. Alex will be ready to go I think next week. He's needed a week off for some time now, and this may help him down the stretch."
