Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks out for rest of season with torn ACL

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Monday that strongside linebacker Mychal Kendrick tore his ACL in Sunday’s loss to the 49ers and will miss the playoffs.

Kendricks suffered the knee injury in the third quarter of the game. He came up gimpy after a blown coverage on Niners fullback Kyle Juszczyk down field, which ended in a 49-yard gain and eventually led to a San Francisco touchdown drive.

The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported earlier Monday that Seattle believed Kendricks had a torn ACL, even before his MRI results came in.

“Mychal looks like he’ll need surgery,” Carroll told reporters. “He’s going to be out for a while.” Losing the eighth-year linebacker is a huge blow for the Seahawks’ defense as it gears up for the postseason.

The team already has little margin for error on that side of the ball — with the blown coverages and breakdowns that seem to happen a handful of times each game for Seattle’s D. Losing Kendricks doesn’t help that cause.

The former Cal standout played a critical role in the Seahawks’ heavy dependence on 4-3 base defense this campaign.

He was one of the team’s more athletic players, and Carroll was confident in his coverage skills — indicative in the fact that he’s frequently kept on the field for passing downs over nickelback options.

Kendricks finished the regular season fourth on the team with 71 tackles and tied for third with three sacks.

With Kendricks out of the picture for January (and potentially February), rookie third-round pick Cody Barton is the starter at SAM backer moving forward. The Seahawks could also look to employ more sub packages on third down.

Kendricks is the fourth Seahawk in the last four weeks to suffer season-ending injuries. Running backs Chris Carson (hip fracture) and C.J. Prosise (broken arm) were lost for the year in Week 16 versus the Arizona Cardinals, while tailback Rashaad Penny (ACL) got hurt vs. the Rams on Dec. 8.

RB Chris Carson´s hip injury might end his season

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson suffered a hip injury in the second quarter of Sunday’s game versus the Arizona Cardinals, and his playing status for the rest of the season is now in jeopardy.

After the 27-13 loss, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll confirmed Carson will miss Week 17’s pivotal clash versus the San Francisco 49ers. Carson underwent additional testing, and team doctors informed Carroll the injury appeared to be season-ending, per ESPN’s Brady Henderson. Carson had eight carries for 40 yards before exiting. 

Carson took over as the starting running back in 2018 and proceeded to run for 1,151 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games. He ended 12th in DYAR (defense-adjusted yards above replacement) among running backs with at least 100 carries, per Football Outsiders.

Through 14 matches in 2019, Carson had 1,190 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.

Outside of selecting DK Metcalf in the second round of the draft, the Seahawks did little to upgrade the offense, largely due to the fact they didn’t have much salary-cap space with which to make significant additions.

Seattle also lost Mike Davis, the team’s second-leading rusher during last season, after he signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Chicago Bears.

Carson’s injury comes two weeks after Rashaad Penny suffered a season-ending torn ACL.

C.J. Prosise injured his arm Sunday night as well and will miss Week 17, leaving rookie Travis Homer as the last active option. 

Carroll was asked how the Seahawks will rally, given all the attrition.

“We are going to figure out a way,” he said. “We are going to use all of the same tools that we use all the time mentally to make sure we can be disciplined about it and turn the focus on the next challenge. Our guys do a remarkable job of doing that. So people who question their ability to do it can’t believe when we do it. We’ll try to show you and prove it.

“The 49ers look awesome. They’re playing great football. They had a great win last week. It will be as great of a test as we could play. I’m disappointed we didn’t go into [the 49ers game] with momentum, but we’re going to re-create it here during the week.”

49ers fall to Seahawks

Despite a spirited, fourth-quarter comeback and a wild overtime period, the San Francisco 49ers experienced their first loss of the season Monday night at Levi’s Stadium, a 27-24 overtime beat at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson.

And with that, the 1972 Miami Dolphins could celebrate again, as they still the last NFL team to win a Super Bowl with a perfect record.
With the defeat, the Niners became the final team to lose a game this season, dropping to 8-1. They also became just the third team to win its first eight games and lose its first one in overtime in the Super Bowl era, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

“You’re always disappointed when you don’t win, especially when we felt we had a number of chances,” Shanahan said. “I was very proud of our guys. I thought we competed very hard. Guys left it all out there. I know guys are hurting right now. I thought all three phases played hard. I thought our defense played unbelievable. I thought the offense played hard as they could but made way too many mistakes to be able to pull out a win in that game.”

On a night when the Niners turned the ball over three times and allowed five sacks and 10 quarterback hits, they still had their chances to win the game. None was more tailor-made for a storybook ending than kicker Chase McLaughlin’s 47-yard field goal attempt in overtime.

More than the rare defensive miscue, the Niners’ offense struggled to take care of the ball and protect quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

San Francisco entered the game without tight end George Kittle(knee/ankle), and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders departed in the second quarter with a rib injury that will require an MRI on Tuesday morning.

More than maintaining an undefeated record, a win Monday would have put the Niners firmly in control of the NFC West division. Instead, Seattle now sits just one game back in the loss column and holds the early tiebreaker.

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7 of the regular season. The game takes place on Thursday, October 22 at 5:25 p.m. PT at Levi’s® Stadium.

Both teams enter the contest with 2-4 records. So this game isn’t just another chapter of this heated rivalry but also, perhaps, a last chance for either team to save its playoff chances in 2015.

The Seahawks were pegged by many to make a triumphant return to the Super Bowl again this season after their heartbreaking loss last year but with the way things are going at the moment things are bleak and they could very well find themselves with a sub .500 record when it’s all said and done. The Hawks haven’t been able to utilize Jimmy Graham in the way he was used in New Orleans and Marshawn Lynch has had to battle injury woes and as such they are just 2-4 on the year and are three games behind the Arizona Cardinals. Russell Wilson needs to get this group together and put their frustrations aside or things might get even uglier as Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman were at each others throats last week and that could be the beginning of the end of the Legion of Doom.
The Niners meanwhile sport an identical 2-4 mark and head into Thursday night’s game as a four point underdog. San Fran hasn’t been able to get things going under Jim Tomsula and while they have some play makers on the offensive side of the ball we haven’t seen a breakout from them yet. Carlos Hyde has been the line bright spot for the Niners this season as he will continue to be one of the game’s better runners moving forward but with San Fran playing from behind a lot his yards haven’t been as impacting and as such San Fran is well back of Arizona and are a long shot to even finish with eight wins this season.

LAST MEETING

The 49ers officially were eliminated from playoff contention when they fell 17-7 at Seattle on Dec. 14. It also marked the final straw for coach Jim Harbaugh, who later said he learned after this game that his tenure officially would end after two more games. That fate seemed sealed 17 days earlier, anyhow, when the 49ers lost 19-3 at home on Thanksgiving, a defeat that prompted CEO Jed York to apologize on Twitter to fans.

Detroit Lions at Seattle Seahawks

When: 8:30 p.m. ET

Where: CenturyLink Field, Seattle

The Lions are still searching for their first win, while the defending NFC champs don’t even look like the best team in their own division. The two clubs will be under the microscope on Monday Night Football in a pivotal conference matchup at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.

The Lions are off to their worst start since 2010, when they lost their first four games en route to a 6-10 finish. You don’t want to bury anybody after just three games, but an 0-3 start is a huge hole to crawl out of for a Lions team seeking to make back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time since the mid-90s.

The rediscovery of Jimmy Graham and the return of Kam Chancellor helped the Seattle Seahawks put aside an 0-2 start.

Those factors as well as the performance by an undrafted rookie have lessened the concern over star running back Marshawn Lynch’s health.

Lynch, who had been dealing with a sore back and neck along with a calf injury, had a difficult time getting himself loose before last Sunday’s 26-0 victory over Chicago. He didn’t come out of the locker room until midway through the first half, rushing five times for 14 yards before injuring his hamstring.

The team announced Sunday the five-time Pro Bowler won’t play Monday after not practicing this week. He’s only missed one game since joining the Seahawks early in the 2010 season.

The Seahawks won the last two home meetings by a combined 33 points but dropped the most recent matchup 28-24 in 2012 when Stafford threw a touchdown pass with 20 seconds left.
