Pete Carroll Shares Injury Updates From Seahawks 24-17 Loss In Chicago

Injury updates from Seattle's Week 2 loss to the Bears.

The Seahawks' lone new injury reported from Monday night's 24-17 loss to the Bears in Chicago was to center Justin Britt, who injured his shoulder in the contest, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said postgame. Joey Hunt saw play time in Britt's absence.

"He was the one guy that (was injured)," Carroll said of Britt. "He banged his shoulder and we don't know exactly what it is yet."

Running back Chris Carson, meanwhile, did not suffer an injury but was replaced by rookie Rashaad Penny late in the game after Carson got extra work on special teams because of injuries at other positions that impacted Seattle's special teams depth.

"He was a little gassed from working on special teams and helping us," Carroll said of Carson. "We had some guys who were out, so he had to kind of double dip and really I wanted to see how we could do with Rashaad and give him some playing time and get him out there."

Carroll also commented on the status of several Seahawks who missed Monday's game to injury, including linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright, receiver Doug Baldwin, cornerback Tre Flowers, and more.

"We'll see some guys come back," Carroll said, looking ahead to his team's 2018 home-opener next Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys at CenturyLink Field. "I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Tre back, Bobby back, K.J. back — I don't know if Doug will make it — D.J. (Fluker), all those guys have a chance to come back next week, and we need them. We need that boost from those guys and the experience and the leadership that they bring."
