According to sources, this may be a significant situation for the Seattle Seahawks as they continue to battle the LA Rams. Kenneth Walker III went down carrying the ball during the first quarter and appeared to go down awkwardly with minimal contact. He was able to get up and walk off the field, but headed straight to the sideline with medical staff. He quickly went directly into the injury tent under his own power, but this apparently may not have been indicative of the extent of the injury. According to the Seahawks PR account, Walker has been officially ruled doubtful to return with an Oblique injury.

Walker briefly returned to the game, but left and will now be replaced by Zach Charbonnet for the remainder of the game. DeeJay Dallas will also be in the mix to get some carries, as well. Since he hasn’t been officially ruled out, stay tuned for further updates if any information becomes available.
