Seattle Seahawks Left Tackle George Fant Carted Off Field

Seahawks Blair Walsh says pointing staring down Vikings bench was provoked

Fant started nine games at left tackle last season as a rookie when injuries hit other players but this year appeared to be earning the job with his own play.

They missed the defensive backs more. He was taken off the field after having an aircast placed on his right leg.

Let's discuss some of the positive, negative, and interesting things from the Minnesota Vikings week 2 preseason game against the Seahawks by starting with the excellent performances and good things from the game!

Second-year player Rees Odhiambo replaced Fant at left tackle for the rest of the first half.

If Fant is out for an extended period - if not the season - the Seahawks might be forced to reconfigure an offensive line that they begun to portray as becoming somewhat stable.

Overall, though, the first-team offensive line did OK.


Receiver Laquon Treadwell (hamstring), cornerback Trae Waynes (shoulder), guard Alex Boone (undisclosed), safety Andrew Sendejo (undisclosed) and linebacker Kentrell Brothers (hamstring) also are not playing vs. the Seahawks.

Wilson hit on six of his first seven passes, at which point he had a flawless passer rating, including 5 of 6 for 60 yards on the first series, an 11-play 77-yard march against Minnesota's No. 1 defense. He sat out his second straight preseason game while continuing to round into form. He got the call Friday, and responded with four tackles in the first half.

Reiff was replaced by Rashod Hill and Boone by Nick Easton. On Friday, though, he got a start. On Minnesota's first offensive play, he caught a 12-yard pass on the left side from Bradford.

If Fant's injury is as serious as it appears it could be, Joeckel would be an option at left tackle, which is the position he played over his first three seasons in Jacksonville.

"I'm really brokenhearted about George Fant getting hurt", Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said.
