Four Cowboys injured on Seattle TD drive
By Todd Archer
SEATTLE - As the Seahawks put the game out of reach with a Marshawn Lynch touchdown run with 7:57 left in the fourth quarter, the Cowboys lost four defensive players.
It started on the punt when Alex Albright went out and continued through Lynch’s score when Marcus Spears suffered an apparent leg injury.
In between, Sean Lee was lost for five snaps after he was upended on a blindside block from Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate. Safety Gerald Sensabaugh suffered a right calf injury and had ice just below his knee after a 1-yard run by Lynch.
Lee was replaced briefly by Dan Connor and Mana Silva took over for Sensabaugh.
The Cowboys were already shorthanded at safety because of Barry Church’s quadriceps strain. He had been replaced by Danny McCray in the first half.
