No Word on How Long Flynn’s Elbow Injury Will Keep Him Out

It sounds more and more like the Hawks are not sure about how bad the elbow injury to QB Matt Flynn is, or how long it will keep him out.

“It surprised him and it surprised us,” coach Pete Carroll said after the game. “He couldn’t throw well enough to play.”

Flynn was going to play with the second unit, with Russell Wilson as the starter. Wilson looked good, throwing two TD’s in the 44-14 win over KC.

When Flynn warmed up before Friday’s game, the pain didn’t go away. “He did improve a little bit from when it first flared up,” Carroll said. “We thought he would be able to throw again and play. He thought so, too, but when he got out there, he just couldn’t.”

So is this something that’s expected to get better quickly or a potentially serious situation?

“I don’t know,” Carroll said. “It’s like a tendinitis-type of thing, but we don’t know what it is any more than that.”
