Injury update

Here’s a note with the injury information from today’s game:

Seattle lost two players to hamstring injuries in the first half — fullback Derrick Coleman and backup strong safety Jeron Johnson — but got better news on injuries that briefly sidelined receiver Golden Tate and left guard James Carpenter.

Johnson was injured in the first quarter in what was his third game back since returning from a hamstring injury he suffered in the season opener at Carolina. Coach Pete Carroll said after the game it was a re-injury.

Coleman was injured while making an eight-yard catch in the second quarter.

Carroll said it was too soon to know the severity of each injury.

Coleman’s departure Seattle with no players on its roster listed as fullbacks as rookie Spencer Ware has been out with a high ankle sprain since the week two win over the 49ers.

Tate was sidelined briefly with what Carroll said was a toe injury and a shoulder issue, but he returned to the game.

Carpenter, meanwhile, was carted off the field in the second half after being hit in the shin. Carroll said it was obviously good news that he was able to make it back but that “we don’t really know what that’s going to be like in a couple of days.’’
