Video replays suggested Seattle Seahawks receiver Deon Butler had suffered a severely broken leg following his late touchdown reception Sunday.
The scene around Butler after the game supported those concerns.
Butler suffered a broken leg, the Seahawks said. The team will presumably have more details Monday.
Multiple doctors from both teams and various medical personnel surrounded Butler after the game in a side room adjacent to the 49ers' locker room at Candlestick Park. They spilled out of the room into the hallway. Butler was lying down inside the room, awaiting transport to a hospital.
