Atlanta starting center Todd McClure and Seattle wide receiver Mike Williams both left Sunday's game with injuries and were questionable to return.
McClure had a knee injury the team said, while Williams sustained a head injury. McClure was replaced by Joe Hawley.
Williams' injury briefly appeared more serious as he was face down on the field after delivering a block on Marshawn Lynch's 11-yard touchdown run. Williams got up and jogged off the field on his own.
Seattle also lost linebacker Matt McCoy earlier in the game to a right leg injury after teammate Aaron Curry crashed into him during punt coverage.

“Survive and Advance” was the philosophy of the late great Jim Valvano, the head coach of the greatest Cinderella sports story ever, the 1983 National Champion NC State University Men’s Basketball team. That motto can also apply to week to week life in the NFL regular season. The Atlanta Falcons survived a comeback by the Seattle Seahawks to win 30-28 and advanced to a 2-2...
SEATTLE — Falcons coach Mike Smith was not please with all of the blown assignments in the secondary, but he was elated to head back to Atlanta with a win and a 2-2 record.
Here’s what he had to say after the game:
OPENING STATEMENT: Winning on the road in the NFL is not an easy proposition and that was definitely the case today. This game was not an exception to it. We did...
Good morning. Today’s weather forecast calls for clouds, 65 degrees and rain later on this evening, so weather should not be a factor today. Here are five keys for Seattle as the take on the Falcons this afternoon. Tackle Turner: Yes, the Falcons have some explosive playmakers on the perimeter, but at their core they still are a running team. So you have to deal with bruising...

FLOWERY BRANCH --- It doesn't get easier for the Falcons .
With a quarter of the season over, including three of four games on the road, the Falcons are 2-2. Not bad.
