BY foxsports • October 8, 2011

Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was sidelined midway through the third quarter of Sunday's game against the New York Giants with a chest injury.

Jackson gained 11 yards on a designed run, but came up holding his right shoulder and upper chest. Coach Pete Carroll said after the game that Jackson had a pectoral muscle problem and will undergo an MRI exam back in Seattle.

Jackson was replaced by Charlie Whitehurst, who led Seattle to a 36-25 victory. Jackson was 15 for 22 for 1661 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the game.

Seattle also lost linebacker Leroy Hill with a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter. Tight end Zach Miller sustained a head injury and will undergo further examination this week, when the Seahawks have a bye. Linebacker Jameson Konz strained a knee.

New York long snapper Zak DeOssie left in the third period with a head injury. Fullback Henry Hynoski left with a shoulder problem in the fourth quarter.
