Seahawks' Cade Johnson Stretchered Off To The Hospital

Wide receiver Cade Johnson of the Seahawks suffered a concussion during the team’s preseason opener on Thursday night at Lumen Field. Johnson was carried off the field on a stretcher and transferred to Harborview Medical Centre in Seattle.

Initial exams, according to head coach Pete Carroll, showed no problems beyond the concussion. He had no idea if Johnson would spend the night in the hospital.

“We got a really good report — the early one,” Carroll remarked. “That’s what we heard, and I hope that’s conclusive.”

The crew “went to the maximum precautions,” he continued, “and the findings were already really positive.”

About four minutes into the second quarter against the Vikings, Johnson was tackled on a 17-yard kickoff return and temporarily seemed unsteady when he stood up. He left on his own accord after being taken into the medical tent for assessment.

After spending the remainder of the quarter in the tent, Johnson was carried onto a stretcher at halftime, his neck was braced and he was wheeled off the field.

Johnson played a portion of his first two seasons on Seattle’s practise squad before leaving South Dakota State undrafted in 2021. Last year, he made three regular-season appearances and had two catches for 21 yards.

Dee Eskridge, a Seahawks receiver, injured his right knee and departed the game in the first half. He did not come back. Prior to his six-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct rules, he is permitted to participate in preseason practises and games.

Eskridge was described by Carroll as having a cartilage issue. “We’re not yet sure how serious it is. It’s not terrible because he can move about on it. Although it wasn’t disastrous, we still need to assess its severity.
