Following the Seahawks' 9-3 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2, head coach Pete Carroll updated the media about the latest injuries to his team.
The first injury sustained in Sunday's game was a knee injury to wide receiver Tyler Lockett. The second-year speedster left in the second quarter but returned in the fourth, later hauling in a 53-yard pass on the Seahawks' final offensive drive. Lockett caught all four of his targets and led the team with 99 receiving yards. Carroll said Lockett's injury was a sprained knee and he was encouraged by how Lockett played through it.
"He was supposed to be hurt and he came back and did a great job to give us a chance to jump out on the last drive." Carroll said regarding Lockett.
Asked about quarterback Russell Wilson, who finished the game 22 of 35 and passed for 254 yards while battling an ankle injury, Carroll said he was "limited," but will be involved in more rehab this week as the Seahawks prepare for the 49ers.
"I was trying to trust my reads and make the plays, make the throws and move on to the next play." Wilson said.
"I've got to give credit to the Seahawks training staff for all the things they did, and also my guy Drew for getting me ready because I wasn't supposed to be playing for a couple of weeks probably. Ultimately, we had the mindset that we were going to get on my feet, move around and make it happen and find a way."
Additionally, Carroll said running back Thomas Rawls, who left at the beginning of the second half because of a leg injury, was kicked in the shin and sustained a leg contusion. There is no additional information about his injury at this time.
The Seahawks fall 9-3 in their first road game of the 2016 season against the Los Angeles Rams.
