Brian Cushing left in the third quarter of Sunday's loss with a concussion.

He'll need to pass the NFL's five-stage concussion protocol to be ready for next Sunday's game against the 49ers.

"I talked to him and he said he's doing good," defensive end Antonio Smith said in the locker room.

Cushing made nine tackles and forced a fumble before he left the game.

Johnathan Joseph left the game in the second quarter but returned. Head coach Gary Kubiak said Joseph is OK. Joseph has been dealing with a toe injury.

The scariest moment of Sunday's game came when Seattle defensive lineman Michael Bennett needed to be carted off the field in a stretcher. Bennett was taken to a local hospital with a lower back injury but was OK. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Bennett was fine and even made it back to be with his team in the locker room after the game.
