Preliminary neck CT scans are clear for Seahawks DE Darrell Taylor

Seattle Seahawks fans can breathe a sigh of relief . . . the preliminary CT scans on defensive end Darrell Taylor’s neck have come back clear.

Taylor was carted off the field with a neck injury late in the game Sunday night during the Seahawks’ Week 6 contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Immediately following the loss, coach Pete Carroll was able to provide an early update from the medical team on Taylor’s tests.

“The preliminary – I’m giving you the preliminary because I usually don’t do this but I want to give you something positive – they were clear,” Carroll told reporters. “The CT scans were clear. So, that’s a really good preliminary report for you.

“There are more tests to be done and stuff like that so we are thrilled about the news.”

Carroll should have further information by his morning radio interview on Monday.
