A team spokesman said Monday that Carlson and teammate Marcus Trufant had been released from the hospital where they were held overnight for observation and were returning to Seattle.

Both players were taken from the field Sunday on a cart and strapped to a backboard. Carlson was hurt in the first quarter leaping near the sideline, falling directly on his head when he was upended by Danieal Manning.
