The Seattle Seahawks exited their 39-32 loss to Arizona Sunday night with a few new injury issues.
Here are updates:

“Pending was the word that they put on it, and we’ll figure out what that means,” he said. “That means that we don’t know yet. But they legitimately have a hamstring, they legitimately have a knee.”
Carroll usually uses the word legitimate to refer to an injury that could sideline a player for at least a little while, so that’s probably not great news for either. But we may need to wait until Wednesday to know for sure.
Richardson got six snaps in what was his first game of the season after recovering from an ACL injury and was injured when he made a 40-yard catch that helped set up Seattle’s first touchdown shortly before halftime.
Irvin was hurt in the fourth quarter on the play when Bobby Wagner returned a fumble for a touchdown.
Seattle had just five receivers for the game and if Richardson is out for any extended period could have to add one. Seattle has three on the practice squad — B.J. Daniels and former UW Huskies Kevin Smith and Kasen Williams.
Irvin was replaced by Mike Morgan for the final two series.
— Running back Marshawn Lynch had been listed as questionable for the game with an abdominal injury suffered in practice on Thursday.
Lynch started and played and had eight carries for 42 yards and a touchdown.
“He felt pretty good on Saturday and Sunday morning he felt assured that he would be fine,” Carroll said. “We really didn’t know until he took off and he ran really hard, ran really well in the game. I think he’s a little sore but we’ll see how it goes.”
