A road win is good. Getting it without getting too beat up is even better, especially when the next game comes in just six days and against a team tied for the best record in the NFL — the surprising Dallas Cowboys at 4-1.
Seattle appeared to suffer no injuries in its win over Washington that will linger much.
Center Max Unger left with a foot injury in the fourth quarter and it was initially announced he would not return to action. But he came back to play the final series and coach Pete Carroll said afterward that it doesn’t appear serious.
“He seems okay,” Carroll said. “His foot was sore but he’s all right.”
Unger had his foot in a boot after the game, but that’s common.
No other Seahawk player appeared injured. WR Percy Harvin left late in the second quarter after cramping up and getting an IV but returned.
And RB Marshawn Lynch did not start after he needed a bit more time to get his back loose. But he entered on the second possession and then played the rest of the way.
“He was just tight coming out of the locker room,” Carroll said. “Took him a little longer to get ready to go — that’s all. He was on the bike warming up, stretching and we got him ready about five minutes later.”
