Riq Woolen "Hurt His Shoulder A Little Bit" In Seahawks Win Over Lions

Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll following Sunday’s overtime win over the Lions.


DETROIT—Tre Brown was one of the heroes of Seattle's Week 2 win over the Lions, coming up with a sack and interception he returned 40 yards for a touchdown on consecutive plays, a score that proved vital in an eventually 37-31 overtime victory.

The reason Brown was on the field to make those plays was an injury coming earlier in the game, with Riq Woolen exiting with what Seahawks coach Pete Carroll called a shoulder injury.

"He got banged up, hurt his shoulder a little bit," Carroll said. 

Asked about the severity of the injury, Carroll said, "I don't know anything. I just know it's sore right there. He'll be OK, we'll figure it out."

While Woolen was the only player for Seattle to leave the game and not return, they did have a couple of injuries com up during the game. Center Evan Brown came out for a series in the first half due to a knee injury, and was replaced by rookie Olu Oluwatimi, but Brown was able to return and finish the game.

Receiver DK Metcalf also missed time with a rib injury, but was also able to come back and finish the game, including a crucial third-down conversion on Seattle's game-winning drive in overtime.

The 12s made the trip to Detroit, MI to cheer on the Seahawks as they look to get their first win of the season against the Lions on Sunday, September 17, 2023. Presented by TCL
