Seattle Seahawks safety Marquise Blair sustained a fractured kneecap during Monday night’s loss to New Orleans.

“He’s going to have to get that cleaned up,” head coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle on Tuesday.

No timetable for his absence was immediately available.

Blair played 24 snaps (15 defense, nine special teams) before leaving Seattle’s 13-10 home setback.

He has nine tackles and two pass breakups in six games this season. Blair has 49 tackles and three forced fumbles in 22 games (three starts) since the Seahawks drafted him in the third round in 2019.
