Notes, injury updates from Seahawks press conferences after crushing loss against Rams

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Thursday night was a disaster for the Seahawks, as they dropped to 2-3 while losing starting quarterback Russell Wilson to a finger injury. We did not hear from Russ after the game, but here’s what you need to know from the press conferences with Pete Carroll, Quandre Diggs, Tyler Lockett, and Geno Smith.

Let’s start off with the most important news: Pete Carroll’s updates on Russell Wilson’s finger injury.

We got a few other injury updates from Pete Carroll on pass-catchers Penny Hart and Gerald Everett.

Quandre Diggs was fuming about the Seahawks’ defense performance after the game. The Seahawks have allowed 450+ yards in four consecutive games, becoming just the fourth team since the merger to do so. No team has ever allowed 450 yards in five consecutive games, and no team has ever won more than six games in a season after having such a 4-game streak.

Despite the awful defensive performance, the Seahawks still had a chance to win late, but Geno Smith threw a late interception on a poor no-call for pass interference. Tyler Lockett claimed responsibility for the play.

I’m going to try and end the Thursday press conference notes on some positives here. Michael Dickson had a cool double punt, and Geno Smith looked like he was ready for NFL football.

Moving on to some injury updates from Pete Carroll’s Friday presser.

Carroll was also on 710ESPN Seattle this morning to talk about Russell Wilson’s injury and last night’s game.

Here’s some more on the implications of Carroll’s description of the injury:
