Leg injury may keep Seahawks starting center Spencer out for preseason

The Seattle Seahawks won over the Denver Broncos by 27+13 on Saturday night, however, they also lost starting center Chris Spencer to leg injury, which may prevent the center from playing for the remaining days of preseason.

Spencer hurt his left quadriceps muscle in the second quarter of the preseason game and was taken to the locker room on a motorized cart. The team said that more tests needed to be taken to determine when Spencer could be back for playing with his teammates. But according to Coach Jim Mora, the injury was “the most serious” of assorted bumps and bruises and an MRI will be done on Sunday.

Another loss of starter after nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Walter Jones left field with injured knee. Usual right tackle Sean Locklear replaced the 35-year-old veteran. However, the replacement’s performance was really not satisfying-he allowed two sacks and had a false-start penalty in Saturday’s preseason game against the Broncos.
