NFC West injury report, Week 9: Max Unger leaves early

Christian Petersen

Seattle already had a banged up line going into Sunday, then added another star to the injury report.

The Seattle Seahawks have all kinds of problems up front right now.

During their 27-24 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, center Max Unger had to leave with a concussion, according to the Seattle Times. Unger has been one of the best centers in football over the past few seasons, earning his first Pro Bowl berth in 2012.

Seattle is already dealing with a pair of important players missing along its front wall including tackles Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini. Both are likely to still miss some more times before returning to game action. Unger's status for next Sunday is unclear when the Seahawks take on the Atlanta Falcons.

Linebacker Bruce Irvin also suffered a stinger in the contest but was able to return.

Seattle suffered the only notable injuries in the NFC West this week, with the St. Louis Rams able to maintain health in a loss to the Tennessee Titans. The Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers were on a bye.
