The Seahawks head into the bye week with a much-needed win and a whole new assortment of injuries.

Below are the latest injury updates.

Starting quarterback Tarvaris Jackson left the game in the third quarter with what was initially thought to be a shoulder injury. Head coach Pete Carroll announced during his post-game press conference that Jackson actually suffered a strained pectoral muscle.

“We don’t know what that means,” Carroll said following the game. “We’ve got to do the MRI stuff and all that. Fortunately, it’s bye-time. We can take advantage of a whole extra week to get him back. I can’t tell you any more than that.”

Jackson has yet to undergo an MRI or any further testing and his status going forward has not been determined. Backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst finished the game for Jackson.

Tight end Zach Miller suffered a blow to the head early in the game and is facing a possible “concussion issue” per Carroll.

Linebacker Leroy Hill was sidelined in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury and Jameson Konz has a strained knee.

Running back Marshawn Lynch, guard John Moffitt and safety Jeron Johnson all sustained various injuries on Sunday, but were able to return to the game.
