As always, the Seattle Seahawks did not get out of Arizona without seeing a few players go down with injuries against the Cardinals. Over the course of the grueling overtime loss, Chris Carson, Shaquill Griffin, and Travis Homer all suffered injuries that forced them out of the game.

Speaking to reporters after Seattle dropped their first game of the season to the Cards, Pete Carroll provided what information he could on Carson, Griffin, and Homer’s health—with more clarity sure to come later in the week.

Per Carroll, Carson suffered a mid-foot sprain and will require an MRI in order to determine the severity. Carson left the game during the first-half and did not return, leading to Carlos Hyde dominating touches the rest of the way.

Griffin, as the NBC broadcast detailed, entered concussion protocol after leaving the game and will remain there to begin the week. There is no timeline on a return yet.

Though the Sunday Night Football broadcast didn’t provide an explanation for DeeJay Dallas’s extended opportunity toward the end of the game, that came in Carroll’s presser. According to Carroll, Travis Homer suffered a knee contusion. Similar to Carson and Griffin, the severity of the injury is not yet known. Homer’s absence loomed large as Dallas struggled mightily in pass protection when needed.

Further information on Carson, Griffin, and Homer, as well as any other injuries that may have gone undetected, will likely come tomorrow when Carroll next speaks to media and moving forward through the week.
