Seahawks’ Rees Odhiambo being examined after hit in chest
SEATTLE — Seahawks’ left tackle Rees Odhiambo remained in the hospital on Monday because of trouble breathing following Seattle’s 46-18 win over Indianapolis on Sunday night.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Odhiambo was hit in the chest on an interception return during the third quarter. Carroll said Odhiambo was taken to a hospital for further evaluation.
Odhiambo was sitting at his locker following the victory when training staff and medics began tending to him for several minutes.
Carroll said there aren’t any issues with Odhiambo’s sternum but he was undergoing additional tests. Odhiambo is expected to be released from the hospital later Monday.
“We’ll take care of him tonight and do all the precautionary stuff,” Carroll said Sunday. “He’ll be in the hospital tonight just to be checked out.”
Odhiambo was down on the field briefly following the interception where he was hit, but was back in at left tackle when Seattle’s offense went back out for its next possession.
Seattle running back Chris Carson suffered a fracture in his lower left leg when he was pinned in a pile in the fourth quarter.
