Sherman has railed against Thursday night football, saying it's hypocritical of the NFL to promote player safety in other areas, only to require teams to play after only three days off. Sherman called Thursday night football a "poopfest" last season in The Players' Tribune and referred to it as "terrible" this week in an interview with

He has never missed a game since entering the league in 2011. Injuries piled up for the Seahawks on Thursday night. Carroll said left tackle Duane Brown sprained his ankle but that the team is unaware how severe the injury is. Brown left late in the second quarter and didn't return.

Carroll also said safety Kam Chancellor suffered a stinger, and Ronald Darby Jersey he sounded incredulous when announcing that running back C.J. Prosise, who missed most of the past five games with a right high-ankle sprain, sprained his left ankle in the third quarter. "I can't even fathom how that happened to this poor kid," Carroll said. Defensive tackle Jarran Reed left in the first half after Ronald Darby Jersey injuring his hamstring. /a> /a> /a> /a> /a> /a> /a>
