Seahawks lose DT Mebane, TE Willson to injuries

Seahawks defensive tackle Brandon Mebane and tight end Luke

Willson have been injured against the St. Louis Rams.

Willson was taken off the field on a cart with 13 minutes

remaining Sunday after injuring his lower left leg. He was placed

in an air cast on the field and helped onto the cart after being

tackled on a 4-yard reception. The play before the injury, Willson

was open down the middle of the field for a possible touchdown but

the officials blew the whistle and negated the play.

Mebane injured his hip in the second half and will not return.

He had six tackles Sunday and was extremely disruptive in the

middle of Seattle’s defense.
