The Seahawks outlasted the Cowboys in a shootout on Sunday, 38-31, improving to 3-0 on the young season. However the win came at a hefty cost as several notable players suffered potentially serious injuries.
Below is a list of the carnage with post-game updates from Pete Carroll. Each player listed is a candidate to miss some time.
Quinton Dunbar (knee) - Dunbar's knee acted up late in the week and kept him out of the game altogether. Tre Flowers started in his place and struggled mightily. Michael Gallup got the best of Flowers all game long. Flowers also dropped an easy interception in the fourth quarter. The missed opportunity turned into a go-ahead field goal drive for the Cowboys.
Neiko Thorpe (hip) - Thorpe was also inactive on Sunday.
Lano Hill (back) - Hill's back injury popped up on Saturday. He was an unexpected inactive given he practiced all week.
Damien Lewis (ankle) - X-rays came back negative. Carroll said it was a lateral ankle sprain. Jordan Simmons and Jamarco Jones split reps in place of Lewis.
Jamal Adams (groin) - Adams' groin strain took place in the second half. Carroll seemed to hint Adams may miss some time. "It's pretty tight," Carroll said. Seattle is getting thin at safety with Marquise Blair already on IR. Ryan Neal came in for Adams and caught the game-winning interception in the final second.
Chris Carson (knee) - Carson suffered a knee sprain on a dirty "gator roll" by Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill. Carroll didn't know the severity of the injury. Carlos Hyde will obviously see a huge uptick in usage if Carson is forced to miss a few games. Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reported that the injury isn't expected to be serious.
Jordyn Brooks (knee) - Brooks suffered a knee sprain when he got rolled up on.
Mike Iupati (knee) - The Seahawks left guard was able to finish the game.
Ethan Pocic (knee) - Carroll said he was surprised Pocic was able to finish the game.
