Seattle Seahawks cornerback Marcus Trufant and tight end John Carlson are returning from Chicago after both suffered concussions in Sunday’s NFC divisional playoff loss to the Bears.
A team spokesman said Monday the pair had been released from the hospital where they were held overnight for observation and were returning to Seattle.
Both players were taken from the field Sunday on a cart and strapped to a backboard. Carlson was hurt in the first quarter leaping near the sideline, falling directly on his head when he was upended by Danieal Manning.
Trufant was injured in the second half making a tackle on Bears tight end Kellen Davis in the third quarter. His head appeared to collide with Davis’ knee.
