Head coach Pete Carroll announced during his post-game press conference that wide receiver Tyler Lockett would require surgery for his right leg injury, which would end his 2016 campaign.
"Yes, it is fair to say that," Carroll said, when asked if the surgery would end Lockett's season.
Lockett injured his leg during a would-be 29-yard touchdown reception where cornerback Brandon Williams came down awkwardly on the wide receiver's right leg. The injury required Lockett to be stabilized on the field and put in air cast, eventually leading to him being carted off. Eventually, the touchdown would be overturned with the ball placed on the one-yard line to add insult to injury. As a result, his absence led to an increase workload for wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, who had previously been demoted down the depth chart in favor of Lockett.
