Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett was taken to the hospital for evaluation after sustaining a “really bad” lower leg contusion in the latter stages of Monday night’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.
HC Pete Carroll said Lockett should be OK and the team is ahead of the situation, but obviously a scary event that goes beyond fantasy. The story said there is possible severe swelling of a muscle that could lead to cut off blood flow and effect nerve and muscle cells. The team has a bye this week and then plays next on Sunday night in Philly in Week 12, so owners may need to work on a backup plan. Metcalf and Gordon will be the team's top receivers if Lockett can't go.
