The insult came when receiver Braylon Edwards dropped a potential game-winning touchdown pass (after getting a gift of a fourth timeout). Then, it was time to tally up the injuries.
And the Seahawks have an eclectic assortment of them.
Coach Pete Carroll explained on Monday that receiver Charly Martin has a bruised lung, tackle Russell Okung has a bruised knee, and receiver Doug Baldwin has busted teeth.
Via Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times, Carroll said Okung has been cleared of any ligament damage. “We’ll see how he comes back Wednesday and Thursday, but we expect him to make it through the week and play,” Carroll said.
The news isn’t as good for Martin, who stayed in Arizona after the game and will be there at least through Tuesday, possibly until Wednesday. “It was pretty serious,” Carroll said. “We’re going to have to take care of Charly and bring him back. It’s going to be a couple of weeks for him.”
Also injured was wideout Doug Baldwin, who’ll have a procedure on his teeth today. “He officially got his teeth knocked in,” Carroll said. “It was a mess.”
With receiver Golden Tate missing Sunday’s game with a knee injury, the Seattle depth chart is officially a mess at the position as the Cowboys prepare to come to town — and it makes us wonder if/when a certain hot mess will make a triumphant (sort of) return. Now that Week One has come and gone, Terrell Owens can be re-signed without the team potentially owing Owens his full salary under the labor deal’s termination pay provision.
The real question is whether T.O. would have made the catch that Braylon didn’t.
