SEATTLE - The Seahawks put together one of their most dominant performances of 2018 on Sunday at CenturyLink Field, topping the San Francisco 49ers 43-16 to improve to 7-5 on the season, but the club could be without a key contributor along its offensive line going forward.
Right guard D.J. Fluker went down with a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter and after being helped to the Seattle sideline by his teammates, a cart came on to take the veteran to the Seahawks locker room. Joey Hunt and Jordan Simmons both saw snaps at right guard after Fluker went down.
“He pulled his hamstring,” Carroll said of Fluker. "I don’t know how serious it is. We’ll have to get all the reports back and all that. It was pretty significant, though. He felt it clearly what it was.”
Elsewhere on the injury front for the Seahawks, running back Chris Carson, who ran 13 times for 69 yards and averaged 5.3 yards per carry, dislocated his finger in the contest, Carroll said.
“Chris dislocated his finger, the top of his index finger and should be OK, but we’ve got to wait and see,” said Carroll.
Additionally, it was announced early in the third quarter that Seahawks cornerback Tre Flowers had a shoulder injury and was questionable to return. Shortly following the report, however, Flowers was back on the field for Seattle’s first defensive series of the second half and was able to finish out the game.
