    Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that offensive lineman James Carpenter did something to his surgically repaired knee that will require further investigation. Carroll did not provide specifics on Carpenter’s condition, only to say that the team does not believe he suffered a major injury.

    “He actually felt something different in the game,†Carroll said. “He felt a little, sharp pain in the game that didn’t go away. He’s overcome so much, and he’s done such a tremendous job to get to this point, that he’s been busting through it. But something did pop here that bothered him enough that he couldn’t finish the game.â€

    “Early indications are that there’s nothing major wrong,†Carroll said later during the press conference. “It’s just that it’s still uncomfortable for him.â€

    The news does not sound good for veteran cornerback Marcus Truftant, who suffered a hamstring injury during Thursday’s practice last week. Carroll said that Trufant’s injury was significant, and he’d be surprised if the Tacoma native could make it back to the practice field by Wednesday.

    “He had a pretty legit hamstring pull,†Carroll said. “And so I don’t know where he’ll be by the end of the week. But I know he’s still in rehab right now and all that kind of stuff. It’s going to be a challenge to get him back for the game. We’ll see what happens.â€

    Although Carroll would not say if Rice suffered a concussion on the final play of the game, the Seattle receiver is going through concussion protocol this week.

    “Probably we will determine on Wednesday where he is for Thursday’s practice,†Carroll said.
