The Seahawks earned their 12th win of the season on Sunday, but did see two key defensive players sustain injuries in their 26-23 victory over the 49ers, safety Jamal Adams and defensive tackle Jarran Reed.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said they don't know a lot yet about Adams' injury but the early indications are that he should be ready to go for Seattle's Wild Card game against the Rams.
"He hurt his shoulder," Carroll said. "He was just so disappointed, he was more dejected about the fact that he got banged up—I think it was on a pass rush—and we'll see what happens, see what that means for next week, I can't tell you. The early stuff from the trainers is that he'll play next week, but we'll have to see how he how he does get through the week."
Carroll said Adams' injury was to the opposite shoulder from the one he injured earlier this season.
Reed, meanwhile, left the game with an oblique injury.
"He had an oblique strain that happened early-middle of the game, and he went back in with it and played with it. Pretty sore coming out though, so we'll have to see what that means. I don't have any forecast there."
Carroll also clarified that running back Rashaad Penny was OK, and that his on-field treatment from athletic trainers was just the result of cramps: "He cramped up, so he's fine."
