The Seattle Seahawks pulled off one of the surprises of the NFL season when they defeated the Chicago Bears, 23-17, in overtime on Sunday at Soldier Field. Moreover, Seattle made it through the game without major injuries.
James Carpenter left the game with what Pete Carroll described as a 'knee tweak'. Carpenter suffered the knee injury in the first quarter, and he did not return to action. X-rays on the knee were negative, and Carpenter will have an MRI later this week. His status for Seattle's Week 14 game against the Arizona Cardinals remains unclear.
While the Seahawks only had to deal with one injury during the game, seven players were on the inactive list going into the contest against the Bears. Wide receivers Jermaine Kearse and Charly Martin, defensive back Marcus Trufant, linebacker Leroy Hill, offensive tackles J.R. Sweezy and Mike Person, and defensive tackle Jaye Howard all sat out against Chicago.
The Seahawks host the Cardinals 1:25 p.m. PT Sunday, and the game will be televised on FOX.
