Seahawks injury report: Kona Schwenke knee injury "legit," D'Anthony Smith with cracked rib

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks limped into Kansas City on Friday night already a little shorthanded at several positions, primarily defensive back, then had a few more injuries crop up during the game. Defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith left the game with what Pete Carroll called a "cracked rib," and offensive tackle Kona Schwenke had to leave on a cart after appearing to seriously injure his knee.

"We've got to wait and see, but it looks like he hurt himself," Carroll said. "He got caught up and twisted underneath, and it looked like he had something going on there that's legit, unfortunately."

As you may know, when Carroll uses the word "legit" in reference to an injury, that's never a good thing.

We'll wait and see but it looks like Schwenke may be in danger of being lost for the year. It wasn't overly likely that he would have made the 53-man roster but he could certainly have been (and could still be, if it's not serious) a practice squad type of player this year.

There's no prognosis on either player in terms of recovery time. We will likely hear more soon.
