RENTON -- Linebacker Matt McCoy suffered a knee sprain on the first play of Sunday's game, and while coach Pete Carroll did not specify how long McCoy will be out, he did state McCoy will miss some time.It is not believed to be a season-ending injury, according to Carroll.McCoy was one of Seattle's core special-teams players, and he also played linebacker in the team's nickel defense.Linebacker Malcolm Smith suffered a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Sunday's game. It is not, however, the same hamstring injury that caused him to miss Seattle's Week 2 game against Pittsburgh. Carroll had no estimate on Smith's availability for this week's game.Defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove also left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury. His status will be updated Wednesday as will that of receiver Mike Williams who left Sunday's game after suffering a head injury while blocking on Marshawn Lynch's 11-yard touchdown run.

Carroll coach Thomas at USC
RENTON -- Coach Pete Carroll was asked if he had any second thoughts about electing to attempt a 61-yard field goal with kicker Steven Hauschka instead of going for it on fourth-and-8."Only that I wish it would have gone," Carroll said. "You easily could have gone the other side on that. It's one of those coach's choices, but I wanted to win the game right...
Brett Bivens one of our Seattle Seahawks writers wonders what Pete Carroll was thinking on Sunday vs. the Atlanta Falcons. Instead of going for it on fourth down, Carroll sent out Kicker Steven Hauschka for the lengthy 61 yard Field goal attempt. Hauschka's career long is 54 yards. The longest kick ever made at Seattle's stadium is 55 yards. You do the math...should he have kicked?

Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said that he was a little optimistic in his initially assessment of linebacker Matt McCoy, and that in fact he will needed to have arthiscopic knee surgery in a week to repair damage in his knee, and will be placed on the season-ending injured reserve list.

RENTON — Seahawks linebacker Matt McCoy is going to be out for a while, but coach Pete Carroll said McCoy’s knee injury isn’t necessarily season-ending.
Carroll categorized the injury as a “significant knee sprain,” but said he doesn’t think surgery will be necessary and McCoy could return before the end of the season.
McCoy was taken off the...
Pete Carroll is coaching on the other side of the continent, but he keeps track of his USC boys out here on the East Coast as much as he can. So what was his reaction when the only remaining Trojan on the Giants’ roster, Terrell Thomas, was lost for the season with a torn ACL in a preseason game?
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that linebacker Matt McCoy suffered a serious knee sprain against Atlanta on Sunday and will be out for awhile, but does not need surgery and is expected to return at some point this season. So the team at this point does not anticipate placing him on the season-ending, injured reserve list. “He got a significant knee sprain that it’s...
Every Seahawks loss is a gut punch to me- But I bounce back quicker from certain losses, and my emotions evolved from crushing disappointment to hopeful optimism within minutes after Hauschka's 61-yard attempt fell short. Why am I going to go through the next week without the usual fog of despair that typically overcomes me after a Seahawks loss? 1. They fought. Yes, the Seahawks...
