Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Cady Johnson is in stable condition at a local hospital after apparently sustaining head and neck injuries during the preseason opener Thursday night.

Johnson, late in the first half of the Seahawks’ game against the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night, was seen walking into the medical tent behind the team bench at Seattle’s Lumen Field. Nothing obvious happened on the field, and he didn’t need help getting up or out.

Shortly afterwards, Johnson was carried off the field with his head and neck pinned.

Johnson was rushed to an ambulance and taken to a local hospital, which the Seahawks quickly said was taken “as a precaution” for head and neck injuries. Other details are not known, although it is in stable condition.

Johnson last touched the ball during a kickoff in the second quarter, and he fell hard on the play, but got up and continued the play. He was targeted twice in Thursday’s pre-season game, but was unsuccessful. He carried one for two yards.

Johnson is entering his second season with the Seahawks. He had two receptions for 21 yards in three games last year. The 25-year-old dropped out of South Dakota State in 2021, and signed a one-year, $870,000 contract with Seattle in another offseason.

The Seahawks won the game 24-13. Drew Lock went 17 of 24 for 191 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Nick Mullins went 14 of 20 for 139 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings.
