UPDATE: Lockett returned on the Seahawks next drive.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett went down in the fourth quarter with an unknown injury and trainers are looking him over. Lockett went down and appeared to hit back-of-the-head first on the turf, according to beat writer Gregg Bell. Cornerback K’Waun Williams was flagged for defensive pass interference on the play.

Lockett had five receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown at the time of the injury. John Ursua replaced Lockett in the lineup. The Seahawks have since scored a touchdown, so we’ll have to wait until the next Seahawks drive to see if Lockett returns.
