UPDATE: Bobby Wagner returned in the third quarter and was on the field for the defense’s first drive of the quarter.

The Seattle Seahawks are taking it on the chin against the Los Angeles Rams, and they suffered a tough loss in the second quarter. Linebacker Bobby Wagner suffered an injury as the Seahawks defense attempted to strip the ball from Cam Akers. Wagner was slow to get up, but eventually walked off under his own power.

Wagner went to the locker room, but given there were only 36 seconds left in the first half, that’s not surprising. His status is unclear for the second half, but a trip to the locker room at this stage of the 2nd quarter is not determinative.
