The Seahawks entered Sunday’s game the healthiest they had been all season, but their 22-17 victory over the Ravens came with a number of injuries.

Three players suffered concussions in the game — wide receivers Sidney Rice and Doug Baldwin and safety Kam Chancellor.

Rice logged two receptions for 14 yards and Baldwin posted one catch for 50 yards before leaving the game. Chancellor was flagged for a personal foul after a hard helmet-to-helmet hit with Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

“They all got hit in the head,” head coach Pete Carroll said. “So we’ll have to figure those out and see what’s going on with that.”

All three players will have to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol in order to return to full practice.

Linebacker David Vobora was ruled out prior to Sunday’s game due to a blow to the head he suffered last week against the Cowboys. Vobora was unable to practice with the team this past week.

Guard John Moffitt was assisted off the field early in the game with a knee injury. He will undergo further testing and an MRI on Monday. Backup guard Lemuel Jeanpierre replaced Moffitt to finish the game.

Both defensive end Anthony Hargrove and safety Atari Bigby suffered hamstring injuries.

None of the injured players were able to return to the game.

“We lost a couple of guys in this game, and we’ll have to see what happens,” Carroll said. “We can’t tell about the severity of any of those right now.”

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has continued to battle a pectoral injury but has been able to start the last two games without further incident.

Carroll is expected to provide further injury updates during Monday’s afternoon press conference, which is scheduled for 3 p.m.
