Wild Card Playoffs - New Orleans Saints v Seattle Seahawks
RENTON (AP) – Seattle coach Pete Carroll says he’s hopeful linebacker, and former trojan, Lofa Tatupu and wide receiver Ben Obomanu will be able to practice by the end of the week after suffering injuries against New Orleans.

Carroll said Monday that Tatupu has responded well after suffering a concussion in the fourth quarter on a hard collision with Saints’ running back Julius Jones. Tatupu still has to be cleared under the league-mandated concussion testing, but Carroll said the team was pleased with Tatupu’s condition two days after the injury.

Obomanu played most of the game after dislocating his right shoulder in the first quarter. Carroll said he thinks Obomanu should be able to practice this week. He finished with five catches for 43 yards.
