Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle’s Brock Huard and Mike Salk that receiver Charly Martin suffered a bruised lung while diving in the end zone for a Russell Wilson pass on the final drive against Arizona on Sunday.
According to Carroll, Martin stayed in Arizona for further observation.
Asked about this report from Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports that offensive tackle Russell Okung suffered only a bone bruise on his knee during the final drive, Carroll would not confirm that, saying that initial X-rays were negative, and the Oklahoma State product received an MRI today, but he did not know the results.
Carroll also said he’s waiting to see how Marshawn Lynch feels today. Lynch was questionable heading into Sunday’s contest because of back spasms.
Carroll also said that receiver Doug Baldwin lost his two front teeth while diving for a Wilson pass in the end zone on the final drive that also knocked the wind out of him. Baldwin received medical attention on the field after the play.
Update: Baldwin tweeted a picture of the photo.
