Trufant, Balmer sidelined for Seahawks

The Seahawks are trying to slow down the Saints during the first half in New Orleans without two defensive starters. So far, it isn’t going well. The Saints led 21-6.

Starting CB Marcus Trufant left the game with a head injury and is questionable to return. He has been replaced by Walter Thurmond.

Another starter, DE Kentwan Balmer, left the game during the first quarter due to a cut on his face. He left the field with trainers under his own power, holding a towel to the left side of his head. Raheem Brock has replaced Balmer, who is expected to return.
