The bye week comes at a good time

The hit on Ricardo Lockette that knocked him out (both literally and from the game) was downright scary. He was out cold for several minutes.

Chris Matthews was hurt in the fourth quarter, leaving the Seahawks with just three wide receivers. Luke Willson was hurt a few plays, which left Seattle with just one tight end. At the end of their final drive, Seattle had to use a fullback on every play because they had no other healthy options.

Along the offensive line, Russell Okung didn’t play and Drew Nowak left during Seattle’s first drive. That’s a unit that couldn’t afford injuries.

On defense the Seahawks escaped mostly unscathed. KJ Wight and Cliff Avril both missed time but came back and finished the game.

The Seahawks will be able to use their bye week to recover from a bunch of lingering injuries. They haven’t looked good against a team that wasn’t terrible yet this season. Hopefully getting healthy can fix that.
