Marcus Trufant, John Carlson released from Chicago hospital

By Cindy Boren

Marcus Trufant and John Carlson, who suffered frightening injuries in the Seattle Seahawks' loss to the Bears on Sunday, have been released from a Chicago hospital and are headed back to Seattle.

Both players were immobilized immediately on the field and carted off. They were hospitalized overnight for observation after suffering concussions on the hard turf (using the word loosely) of Soldier Field.

"Both were okay," Coach Pete Carroll said Sunday. "Didn't look to be any injuries past just the fact that they had a concussion."

Today, they are "fine," according to Carroll (via Twitter).

Good to hear. Seahags losing = good, head/neck injuries = bad.

Bummed about Favre. Figured he had a good 10 years left in him, at least.

Does this mean Dale Earnhardt, Jr., will move to the forefront of the Wrangler Jeans pitchman stable?
