Seahawks suffer no long-term injuries in week three victory
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks appear to have not suffered any lengthy injuries in week three.
With no preseason games in 2020, NFL teams have seen a rash of injuries from players through the first part of the season. The Seahawks saw Marquise Blair and Bruce Irvin get hurt and lost for the year in week two. In Seattle’s week three victory over the Cowboys things seemed like they might even get worse.
But Seattle appears to avoided key players missing many upcoming games.
Carson left the game late against the Cowboys with a sprained knee. He was tackled by Dallas defensive tackle Trysten Hill in a play that looked dirty at the end. Carson was clearly already on the ground but Hill kept hold of Carson’s leg and twisted it. This is when Carson suffered the injury.
Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright tweeted that he thought the tackle was “malicious” and it appeared to be so.
Luckily for the Seahawks and Carson, Carson had an MRI that showed no significant damage and Carson could even play this Sunday against the Dolphins. Though it wouldn’t be surprising if Seattle decided to hold Carson out and go with Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer.
Lewis, Seattle’s starting right guard, hurt his ankle and left early in the game. Coach Pete Carroll said the injury was not a high ankle sprain which takes longer to recover from. Lewis, like Carson, also has a chance to play against the Dolphins, but Jordan Simmons came in and played decently so Seattle could rest Lewis in week four.
Brooks suffered what may be the worst of Seattle’s injuries on Sunday. He has a first-degree sprain and is likely to miss at least two weeks. Brooks started on Sunday but played only 14 snaps so his impact was limited.
Adams pulled his groin and missed a lot of time. He may be doubtful for Sunday’s game as Carroll said the injury was really bothering Adams after the game. Again, Miami is not a very good football team and the Seahawks should be able to win without Adams. Resting Adams may be the wiser decision.
