The Seahawks apparently got some good news, after wide receiver Tyler Lockett stayed behind at the hospital last night for treatment of a leg contusion.

Via Michael-Shawn Dugar of, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said during his appearance on 710 ESPN today that Lockett “should be OK.”

Carroll described the bruise on his shin that created swelling as “a pretty severe situation” last night, and Lockett was taken to Stanford Hospital, and remained there as the team flew back to Washington.

Carroll didn’t offer any specific timetables for Lockett’s return, but they aren’t as thin as they were a week ago, as Josh Gordon made his first appearance for the Seahawks last night.

  1. The best reciever in the NFC West will be ok. Josh Gordon sure looked natural catching passes from Russ though…just sayn. Seahawks are well positioned to control their own playoff destiny with six games to go. GO HAWKS!!!!

  2. Get to healin Rockett! The Hawks really need this bye. That was an emotional drain on top of 14 weeks of non-stop NFL bruising. A well deserved rest at 8-2 with divisional ownership!

  3. It may have been one of those Compartment Syndrome injuries where there is internal bleeding in the tissue that pools and can lead to amputation.Glad to see he’s ok.

  4. “Lockett, Hollister, Metcalf & Gordon could be trouble for ‘hawk’s opponents.”

    Don’t forget Malik Turner.

  5. Good to hear. Glad they kept him out in precautionary move. Better to protect the players, than unnecessarily take risk of permanent or more extensive damage.

  6. Stanford is the best place in America to go. Good call to stay as a precaution. These teams owe it to their players to make health a priority unlike say the Redskins Dolphins Cleveland.
