Martin has bruised lung

Wide receiver Charly Martin remains in a Phoenix hospital after suffering a bruised lung while trying to make an end-zone catch in the closing seconds of the Seahawks’ loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Coach Pete Carroll said in his just-concluded day-after news conference that Martin could be out at least a couple of weeks and won’t return to Seattle until Tuesday or Wednesday.

The news was better on left tackle Russell Okung, who also left the field on the team’s final drive in the 20-16 loss. He has a bruised knee and could play in Sunday’s home opener against the Cowboys at CenturyLink Field.

Wide receiver Doug Baldwin is scheduled to have dental work done on Tuesday after getting “teeth knocked in,” as Carroll put, also on the final drive.
