Seattle Seahawks wide receivers Ben Obomanu (wrist) and Golden Tate (ankle) both incurred injuries in the team's 28-24 loss to the Detroit Lions Sunday, according to Eric Williams of the Seattle News Tribune.

Tate should be fine after he "tweaked" his ankle and played through the injury to lead the team in receiving with seven catches for 64 yards. As for Obomanu, the veteran pass catcher will be evaluated when the team gets back home to Seattle along with fullback Michael Robinson, who also suffered a wrist injury.

In other injury news, wide receiver Braylon Edwards' knee swelled up before kickoff, forcing him to sit for the contest.

With all these ailments piling up, the Seahawks are quite thin at the wide receiver position. Doug Baldwin sat out Sunday's game, too, and is considered week-to-week with his high ankle sprain. Sidney Rice, Charly Martin and Tate were the only three wide receivers to catch a pass in Week 8 for Seattle.
