Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Sean Lee will not play Thursday against the Los Angeles Chargers because of a hamstring strain. It will be Lee's fourth missed game of the season and he is iffy to play Nov, 30 against Washington.

Pete Carroll said of the Seahawks' unsuccessful fake field goal at the end of the first half, "It would have been a really good call if we made it." Carroll said that, at worst, the Seahawks felt Luke Willson could have run out of bounds to stop the clock and give Seattle a closer look at a field goal, but he saw it as a chance to score a touchdown.

Pete Carroll called it a groin strain that led to running back Mike Davis exiting for good in the third quarter. Davis, who was cut by San Francisco over the offseason, vowed to be ready in time to face his former team on Sunday. Carroll confirmed cornerback Shaquill Griffin suffered a concussion and said right guard Oday Aboushi "banged his shoulder pretty good." He didn't know the extent of Aboushi's injury.

Blair Walsh said he was too worried kicking the ball straight and didn't drive it enough on his 52-yard attempt, which fell short to seal Atlanta's win. "That side of the stadium is definitely tricky and I wanted to make sure it was straight so it went through, but I need to probably drive it obviously more, and I didn't," he said. Walsh added: "It's tough when you're not there for your team in a moment like that, but I keep working my tail off and committing to what I'm doing. I was happy with everything else that I did in the game, so it's tough that the last play is what it comes down to, but that's part of football."
