The Seahawks encountered a few injury situations in their Monday Night Football win over the Lions. Running back Fred Jackson got his ankle rolled up on and left the game, but according to Ian Rapoport, the x-rays were negative, so that's a positive thing. Pete Carroll said that they'll wait and see what it means for the veteran running back, and called it a "sprained ankle."

UPDATE: Pete Carroll said Tuesday morning that it's a high ankle sprain for Jackson.

Carroll also said he didn't know what Marcus Burley's status would be for next week after the defensive back broke his thumb. Ricardo Lockette left the game briefly when he "got sick," per Carroll.

Moving forward, with Fred Jackson potentially set to miss some time, the Seahawks can rest assured (somewhat) that Marshawn Lynch is very close to being able to play.

"He wasn't quite right," Carroll said of Lynch missing this game. "His best day was today; he ran pretty well in pregame (but) they did not think he could sustain through the game and come out healthy again the next week. So we're hoping that by using patience here that he'll be ready to go this next week."

If Lynch's status is up in the air for next week in Cincy, expect Thomas Rawls and Derrick Coleman to be the main runners, with potential for Rod Smith to get a call up from the practice squad.
