Tyler Lockett out for the season after breaking his leg

Doyle BarkerDec 26, 2016

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett suffered what appeared to be a very serious leg injury in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals and was carted off of the field. He had been zooming again, finally back from battling a sprained knee from 2 1/2 months earlier this season.

The Seahawks pride themselves on being able to overcome obstacles, but there might be too many this season.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Seahawks are 7.5-point home favorites versus the Cardinals after opening as a 7-point favorite.

National Football League fans were expecting fireworks on October 23 when the Arizona Cardinals met the Seattle Seahawks for the first time this season.

The loss was Seattle's first at home this season. Jimmy Graham had a 37-yard touchdown catch and Paul Richardson's 5-yard TD from Wilson with 1:06 left tied it before Hauschka's extra-point miss.

The Seahawks will now need to find a way to replace Lockett, who gave them a receiver who was not afraid to go over the middle, but could also use his explosive speed to stretch the field. They tried Thomas Rawls from I formation.

The Seahawks at 9-4-1, have the division and a playoff berth locked up. Now, the Seahawks will have to regroup and reassess now that they'll be without one of their key players.

If the Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions win their final games, then the Seattle Seahawks are the No. 4 seed. Avril forced Cardinals running back David Johnson to fumble on a run around right end.

Wilson then threw incompletions to Baldwin, Kearse and Baldwin again. The catch got the Cardinals into field-goal range, and after an 8-yard reception by Larry Fitzgerald, the Cardinals rushed out their field goal unit.

Saturday was Bradley Sowell's turn to go from starting at right tackle one week to inactive the next. And this particular PAT was huge, because had Hauschka made it, it would have given Seattle the lead with only a minute left in the game. "In the return game, the 5'10" Lockett could use his quick ability to change direction to make defenders miss.

Gilliam replaced Sowell last week in the second half of Seattle's 24-3 rout of Los Angeles.
