The Seahawks are struggling on defense after losing Pro Bowl middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu to injury in the second quarter. They were having some problems before Tatupu left the game, but this injury could severely limit the defense.

Tatupu was injured during a collision involving teammate Leroy Hill and Bucs receiver Ike Hilliard. Hill faces a possible fine for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Hilliard. Hill's helmet hit Hilliard's facemask. Tatupu was tackling Hilliard from the other side. Hilliard left the game on a motorized cart. Tatupu has been seated on the Seahawks' bench.
