Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that TE John Carlson and CB Marcus Trufant were likely to remain in a Chicago hospital overnight after both players suffered concussions in Sunday's divisional playoff game. Carroll said both players were expected to be OK, but would stay an extra day for precautionary reasons.

Carlson was hurt in the first quarter, attempting to leap over a defender. While in the air, he was hit in the knee and wound up landing on his face. He was down on the field for several minutes before being taken off on a stretcher.

In the third quarter, Trufant appeared to be kicked in the head by Bears TE Kellen Davis when the cornerback dove to make a tackle. Trufant's head made contact with Davis' knee and Trufant appeared to have his neck bent backward. He, too, was carted off after being examined by Seattle's trainers.
