Here are a few quick updates from Pete Carroll’s meeting with the media today following Sunday’s loss at San Diego (I’ll have more detailed quotes later):
— Carroll said assistant coach Pat Ruel is out of the hospital and headed back to Seattle after staying the night in San Diego after suffering from an irregular heartbeat after the game.
— Carroll said there were no new significant injuries.
— RB Marshawn Lynch walked off the field before the game ended due to a tight back, Carroll said, saying that Lynch was with trainers as he departed. He said Lynch has had issues with his back in the past and it is something they are constantly monitoring. The only game Lynch has missed in his time in Seattle came in 2011 against Cleveland and was due to his back.
— Christine Michael and Kevin Pierre-Louis should be back this week, Carroll said.
And here’s some video of the first few minutes of Carroll’s press conference today:
