Already without Lynch, Seahawks lose RB Jackson, Lions lose TE Ebron

Fred Jackson (22) was off and running at the start of Monday night's game. But an ankle injury grounded him -- and some of Seattle's offensive attack in the process.

Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron is out of Monday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks after suffering a knee injury in the first half while Seattle Seahawks running back Fred Jackson is questionable to return with an ankle injury.

Ebron suffered a left knee injury midway through the second quarter on a 5-yard run by Theo Reddick. Ebron was rolled up blocking on the play. He was examined on the sideline for several minutes before walking back to the locker room. The team said at the start of the second half that he would not return.

Ebron had two catches for 22 yards before getting injured.

The Seahawks were already short-handed in the backfield as All-Pro Marshawn Lynch missed the game with a strained hamstring. Jackson had three carries for 21 yards and two catches for 33 yards before the injury on Monday. ESPN announced in the third quarter of Monday’s telecast that Jackson’s injury had him questionable to return.

Also on Monday night, Seattle lost cornerback Marcus Burley and wide receiver Ricardo Lockette in the first half to injuries. Burley suffered a thumb injury and Lockette was announced as out due to shortness of breath.
