Sunday the Seattle Seahawks put everything together, storming out to a 24-0 halftime lead over the Atlanta Falcons, only for everything to nearly come unglued during the second half of a game they ended up winning just 27-20.
The offensive line got some good news to start the game when left tackle Duane Brown returned from a biceps injury and right guard D.J. Fluker stepped back into the lineup after returning from a hamstring injury. However, just minutes into the Week 8 contest against the Falcons the offensive line suffered a potentially big blow when center Justin Britt suffered an injury that forced him out of the game. After the game, the update on Britt was not reassuring.
#Seahawks C Justin Britt, who was ruled out quickly, is feared to have a serious and season-ending knee injury, sources say. He’ll have an MRI to confirm, but Seattle has likely lost its starting center.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 27, 2019
Thus, while the team maintained its grip on second place in the NFC West with the win, losing a starting lineman for the year is less than desirable. Britt had played in all but one game during his career for Seattle, with the lone game which he missed being the 2016 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which is who the Hawks are set to play in Week 9.
