Coach Pete Carroll said Chancellor could return for Sunday’s game against Cleveland.
Strong safety Kam Chancellor sat out the last three quarters because of a tailbone injury, or what Carroll called “a bruised backside,”
Chancellor jogged to the sideline with about four minutes left in the first quarter and did not return.
But Carroll said Chancellor could return for Sunday’s game against Cleveland.
“He was really uncomfortable today, and we think he has a chance to get back this week,’’ Carroll said.
Chancellor nodded affirmatively when asked if he was all right as he left the locker room.
Chancellor was replaced by Kelcie McCray, who the team acquired from Kansas City for a fifth-round pick shortly before the season.
“For the most part he looked like he was on his stuff,’’ Carroll said of McCray.
Also Sunday, cornerbacks Marcus Burley and DeShawn Shead left because of sprained ankles. But Shead returned, which Carroll called a good sign. Defensive tackle Michael Bennett also “jammed his toe’’ and left briefly, an issue Carroll said Bennett has had “for some time.’’ Bennett also returned.
