At first glance, it looks like Seahawks punter Jon Ryan got in a bit of a tussle.

But anyone who watched the first quarter of the game against the Minnesota Vikings knows Ryan was injured after a botched punt on Sunday.

“You should see the other guy,” Ryan tweeted on Monday.

You should see the other guy.

Ryan suffered a broken nose after he slammed face-first into the turf while trying to get a first down during the wildcard game on Sunday. Though head coach Pete Carroll took no issue with Ryan’s decision to run, he said he would have preferred the kicker to run left or right, instead of going over the top of a pile of players.

Ryan was the team’s only reported injury during the game, according to to the Seahawks. Carroll said Ryan’s nose “looked terrible.”

Despite the injury, Ryan finished the game. Carroll didn’t indicate that the injury would affect Ryan’s status for next week against the Carolina Panthers.
