SEATTLE (AP) -Just two days after again coming out of retirement for a second time, Junior Seau was back on the field for New England because of injuries on the Patriots' defense.
Starting inside linebacker Tedy Bruschi limped off the field early in the second quarter with a left knee injury after getting hit by a teammate while trying to tackle Seattle's Maurice Morris on a 4-yard run. Bruschi was in pain and a Seahawks trainer rushed to his side before New England medical personnel could get across the field.
After a few minutes on his back, Bruschi got up on his own and walked slowly off the field with a noticeable limp. He walked to the locker room a few minutes later.
Bruschi's injury opened the door for Seau to enter after signing on Friday. The Patriots were also without starting linebacker Pierre Woods, inactive for the first time this season with a jaw injury.
On Seau's third play, Seattle tight end John Carlson beat Seau on an out route for a 10-yard touchdown reception that gave Seattle a 14-3 lead.
