SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks left the first game of their preseason slate with a slew of injuries in the second half, two of them coming along the offensive line.
Tackle Jamarco Jones suffered a leg injury in the fourth quarter and was eventually carted off the field. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Jones probably sustained "a legit ankle sprain." Jones' x-rays came back negative.
The second injury on the line came to tackle Isaiah Battle, who left in the third quarter with a sprained knee. Carroll said he isn''t sure how bad the injury to Battle is but it is not severe.
"We're very fortunate there," Carroll said.
Seahawks safety T.J. Mutcherson and second-year wide receiver David Moore also left the game late with injuries.
Notably, before the game, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said during his pregame radio interview with Steve Raible that running back C.J. Prosise would miss Thursday’s game due to a hip injury.
“Prosise has a little hip injury he’s working through,” Schneider said.
Carroll after the game said Prosise's hip flexor flared up in the team's practice and they elected to sit him out of the game to be safe. Prosise did some running on the field during pregame warmups before being held out.
