SEATTLE – Seahawks tight end Luke Willson will be out for several weeks after suffering a “legit” hamstring injury against the 49ers, Pete Carroll said Tuesday.
Carroll says Willson will undergo further examination to give a better timetable for a return.
The news leaves the Seahawks dangerously thin at tight end after Will Dissly’s season-ending ACL tear in Week 6. It leaves Jacob Hollister as the sole active player at the position.
Wide receiver Tyler Lockett was also hospitalized for a lower leg contusion, but Carroll believes Lockett may recover in time for the team’s November 24 road game against the Eagles.
