After Sunday’s 27-3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the Seattle Seahawks Coach Jim Mora announced that middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu would miss the rest of the season with a torn left pectoral muscle.
The three-time Pro Bowler appeared to get hurt while tackling receiver Larry Fitzgerald in Cardinals jersey late in the second quarter. While he was walking off the field, he was holding his left chest area and his left arm appeared to be limp. According to Mora, Tatupu would have a surgery following the game.
Before leaving the field with the injury, Tatupu already had a team-high eight tackles against the Cardinals. He was replaced by second-year linebacker David Hawthrone after leaving the field. That was the second time this season Hawthrone had filled in for the Seahawks defensive captain.
