Due to a torn pectoral muscle, Erik Harris will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

The injury seems to have occurred during a run stop very early in the first quarter of the triumph over the home team Carolina Panthers, which the Carolina Seahawks scored 29-21.

He continued to play but eventually took a knee a few plays later and did not return to the game after that.
