The injury bug hit the Seattle Seahawks this week and the result was simply catastrophic. The Seahawks will take on the Chicago Bears on Monday night without the services of Pro-Bowlers, Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright and Doug Baldwin.
Monday’s game will the second missed game for Wright who missed the opener while recovering from Arthroscopic Surgery that was performed in August. Baldwin suffered an MCL injury during last week’s game at Denver while Wagner’s injury was the biggest surprise due to his full participation in the game. Cornerback Tre Flower’s participation in the Bears game is unknown after he suffered a slight hamstring injury in the Denver game.
For Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll injuries are part of the game and the key is to have the players stepping in seize the moment.
“Yeah, it really is something that I think you should have been talking about all along knowing that it’s going to happen at times so that you guys aren’t shocked by the fact that something happens. I think the way we respond is really important and we always respond.
We give the love to the guys that are going to have to step out for a bit, but the focus really goes on the guys that are stepping in and we asked them to elevate, to play at the same level that the guy before him (did) without exception in and everybody around those guys realize that too so we embrace the new opportunity that’s there at hand. It’s always been something that has not been an issue for us.”
