NFL Injury Report: James Carpenter leaves briefly but Seahawks avoid major injuries

The Seattle Seahawks may have lost to the St. Louis Rams, 19-13, on the road Sunday afternoon but at least they didn't lose any of their players to injuries.

There was a short scare with left guard James Carpenter leaving the game briefly due to a right knee injury but Carpenter's absence lasted less than a quarter.

Carpenter was making his season debut Sunday after being shut down with an ACL injury in his same knee last November. He was able to walk off the field under his own power and added postgame that his knee is "feeling great."

The starting guard on the other side of the line, John Moffitt, was also inactive this past week while nursing a knee injury of his own. Paul McQuistan started at right guard in his place and the Seahawks didn't seem to miss a beat with their running game compiling 179 yards on the ground. While there's no doubting their success in the run game Sunday, it will still be interesting to see what Seattle is able to do with their whole starting offensive line out there (something that has yet to happen in 2012).
