According to Jason La Canfora, John Moffitt's knee injury is serious enough to require surgery, so he is out for the rest of the year.  Backup lineman Lemuel Jeanpierre played well after replacing Moffitt in the first quarter, but this is bad news for the Seahawks.  Unlike fellow 2011 draft pick James Carpenter, who has struggled as the team's starting right tackle all season long, Moffitt had really come into his own and made right guard a position of strength for Seattle.  Here's hoping he can come back strong next season and continue his great development.

Doug Baldwin and Sidney Rice suffered concussions in similar circumstances; both were tackled and driven shoulder-and-head first into the turf.  Kam Chancellor also suffered a concussion, but his was self-inflicted.  Chancellor is a big hitter, but he has a bad habit of leading with his helmet on tackles and this time that really came back to bite him.  Here's hoping he learned his lesson this time, assuming he remembers anything about the tackle afterwards.  In all three cases, the players will have to pass a concussion test to be cleared to play in next week's game in St. Louis.

Two key backups on defense, DL Anthony Hargrove and S Atari Bigby, suffered hamstring injuries during the game and were unable to return.  Both have been previously listed as having hamstring injuries on the weekly injury reports, Hargrove prior to the Giants game in week five and Bigby leading up to the Bengals game in week eight, so it's likely that both players simply reaggravated the same injuries.
