Pete Carroll Shares Injury Updates From 26-24 Win vs Falcons

The latest injury updates from Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll following Seattle's 26-24 win against the Falcons.

Following the Seattle Seahawks' 26-24 thrilling victory against the Atlanta Falcons, head coach Pete Carroll shared the latest injury updates about his team.

Defensive end Michael Bennett sustained a right knee injury in the third quarter on Atlanta's eight-play, 79-yard drive that tied the game at 17. After the whistle, Bennett stayed on the ground and clutched the back of his knee after taking a shot on a cut-block. 

"A little sore," Carroll said when asked how Bennett is doing. "We think he's OK. A little sore, a little sore knee. We'll see what happens here in the next couple of days."

Tight end Luke Willson also left the game with a knee injury after being caught from behind while blocking near the goal line on Christine Michael's fourth quarter one-yard touchdown run. Carroll said Willson will undergo further testing.

"He hurt his knee today," Carroll said. "I don't know anything specific about it, but we'll get all that checked out. He's going to have to get all the MRIs and all that kind of stuff. I think C-Mike (Michael) fell into his leg."

Safety Kam Chancellor, who missed his first game of the season due to a groin injury, should be able to return next week when the Seahawks face the Cardinals in Arizona.

"He should be good for next week," Carroll said regarding Chancellor. "He almost could go this week, so we'll keep our fingers crossed." 

Additionally, Carroll was impressed with how quarterback Russell Wilson looked on Sunday following the bye. Wilson, who has been dealing with an ankle and knee injury, finished the game 25 of 37 and passed for 270 yards.

"I thought he played good, I thought he moved well," Carroll said. "It was by far the best game moving around."
