It’s midway through the fourth quarter and the Seattle Seahawks continue to maintain the double digit lead over the Indianapolis Colts they took in the first half. The 21-10 lead was built on the arm of Russell Wilson, but the offense has stumbled some in the second half, punting several times and turning it over once on a Chris Carson fumble.
Things appeared to have changed midway through the fourth quarter when Wilson connected with DK Metcalf on a 30 yard pass, but the mood immediately changed following an end around to rookie second round pick Dee Eskridge, who suffered a concussion upon being tackled.
It appeared as though he banged his head on the turf while coming down, and went into a fencer’s posture, often indicative of a concussion. Field microphones immediately picked up those around Eskridge telling him to stay down, while refs immediately blew the whistle for an injury timeout.
This is a fluid situation and will be updated as new reports emerge.
