Seahawks RCB Deshawn Shead left Sunday's Week 11 game with a hamstring injury.

After the game, coach Pete Carroll said Shead's hamstring began acting up on Saturday. The Seahawks pulled him out on Sunday when the hamstring was aggravated. It sounds like an injury that might cost Shead a game or two. Although Richard Sherman deservedly garners most of the headlines, Shead is having a great year. FS Earl Thomas also pulled his hamstring against the Eagles.
