Late in the fourth quarter of the Sunday Night Football matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers, a scene played out on the field that fans never wish to see.
Following what appeared to be a routine running play, Seahawks defensive end Darrell Taylor remained down on the field, needing to be tended to by the training staff. In a scene that fans never wish to see, Taylor was then immobilized on a backboard and carted off the field.

It is too soon for an update on Taylor's status to have been provided by the team. It seems safe to assume that he is unlikely to return to Seattle with the team as his medical needs are tended to first. Wishing all the best for Taylor and his health, whose performance on the field in his first year of play had so far been above the expectations of most.
