Just when it seemed like the Seattle Seahawks were approaching something like stability on their offensive line, potential disaster struck.
Seattle Seahawks left tackle George Fant was carted off the field during Friday's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings with a right knee injury, according to the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta. Fant was rolled into by teammate Justin Britt on a pass play and immediately fell to the turf in pain.
Fant was taken off the field on a cart after having an air cast placed on the knee and his demeanor indicated that the injury was serious.
Sadly, Minnesota was unable to leave Seattle with a victory, as they lost the Seahawks by a final score of 13-20.
"Nothing I'm going to repeat here, " Walsh said. "There are other things that follow that but my first thoughts are for George".
In Seattle, Nick Easton will start at left guard for Boone and tackle Rashod Hill fills in again for Reiff.
Waynes suffered a shoulder injury on the second play at Buffalo.
"I've been on practice squad for two years now and quite honestly I'm exhausted of it", Williams said.
Wilson hit on six of his first seven passes, at which point he had a ideal passer rating, including 5 of 6 for 60 yards on the first series, an 11-play 77-yard march against Minnesota's No. 1 defense. I'm sure we'll hear more of this in the next few days.
If you're looking to catch any preseason football on Friday night, we've got some good news along with some bad news if you're out on the East Coast.
They missed the defensive backs more. I feel really good about that right there, going into the next game.
"I felt a little bit off by the taunting and I didn't like it".
Walsh had an up-and-down five-year tenure with the Vikings, the low point of which had to be his missed 27-yard field goal in the closing seconds of Minnesota's 10-9 loss at Seattle in the 2016 playoffs.
Walsh almost had three made kicks of beyond 50 yards but a 53-yard attempt in the first half hit the crossbar.
Of course the Vikings had some reasons for cutting Walsh a year ago, but I always contended that they were giving up way to early on a kicker that can be one of the best in the league. "I could see guys smiling so I hope nobody took it too seriously".
Rookie Pat Elflein gets the start at center. With the Vikings bringing back Latavius Murray slowly from ankle surgery in March, Cook had seven carries for 40 yards in the first half, including a 15-yarder.
