Seahawks’ Tatupu Out for the Season

The Seattle Seahawks have already had their fair share of injuries so far this season. And they were dealt another big blow on Sunday when middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu tore his left pectoral muscle in a 27-3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

After the game, Seahawks coach Jim Mora said that three-time Pro Bowler Tatupu would need surgery and miss the rest of the season. It appeared Tatupu was injured in the second quarter while tackling Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Despite not playing in the second half, Tatupu still had a team-high eight tackles against the Cardinals. Seattle also played the second half of Sunday’s game without defensive end Patrick Kerney after he aggravated a groin injury. Kerney had a forced fumble and a couple sacks before going down on the final play of the first half.

In addition to these new injuries, Seattle was without four other starters on Sunday. They have their bye next week and hopefully will have Sean Locklear, Rob Sims and Leroy Hill ready for action in their next game when they take on the Cowboys on Nov. 1 in Dallas.
