CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cardolian Panthers tight end Greg Olsen left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury.

Olsen was questionable to return, the team said, after going to the bench favoring his right shoulder. Olsen was injured on third-down reception following a hard collision with Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor.


The Panthers held a 31-14 lead with 10 minutes to play in the game.

Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung left Sunday's divisional playoff game early in the second quarter with a shoulder injury and was doubtful to return against the Panthers.

Okung was injured on a play in which quarterback Russell Wilson threw his second interception of the game. The play set up a field goal that gave Carolina a 24-0 lead. Okung is a sixth-year veteran out of Oklahoma State.

Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril was checked out on the field with a neck injury.

Avril walked off the field on his own on the last play before the two-minute warning of the first half.
