At least Kam Chancellor made a major impact in the short time he was on the field. The Seattle Seahawks safety was injured in the second quarter of Super Bowl XLVIII, per Will Brinson of's Rich Cimini reported that the injury occurred on the kickoff following the Seahawks taking a 15-0 lead:

Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman noted Chancellor was receiving attention to his lower-back area:

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News later reported that Chancellor suffered a thigh injury and that the Seahawks star would likely make a return:

It was a bit bittersweet that Chancellor was hurt after the touchdown set up by his interception of Peyton Manning in the first quarter.   

As big as this game is, the Seattle safety likely won't be off the field for very long.
