Golden Tate Injury: Updates on Seahawks WR's Foot, Likely Return Date
Directly after a 25-yard catch-and-run, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate was forced to leave Thursday night's contest against the Arizona Cardinals with an apparent foot injury.
Kent Somers of AZCentral Sports has the news:
Golden Tate (foot) questionable return.— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) October 18, 2013
Tate would return later in the third quarter. We was active for Week 8.
UPDATE: Friday, Oct. 18
From ESPN's Liz Mathews:
WR Golden Tate injured both his toe and shoulder per Carroll, but he too was able to return to the game.— Liz Mathews 710 ESPN (@Liz_Mathews) October 18, 2013
In his fourth season, Tate has 23 catches for 269 yards and one touchdown. He has also returned 17 punts for 201 yards, tied for fourth-most in the NFL.
Before leaving on Thursday, he had caught three balls for 45 yards and returned two punts for 27. He returned another for a touchdown in the first half, but it was brought back via penalty.
Tate is an elusive playmaker, and with Percy Harvin still sidelined, he has served as Seattle's de-facto No. 1 receiver, although quarterback Russell Wilson has made a knack of spreading the ball around.
With Sidney Rice on the opposite side of the field and Doug Baldwin in the slot, youngster Jermaine Kearse, who has made several big plays this season, would see more snaps in Tate's absence.
Still, the injury doesn't sound too severe and the Seahawks have a long week of rest in front of them, so Tate isn't likely to miss too much time.
