Seahawks’ Jackson has postgame seizure

October 28, 2002


— Seattle receiver Darrell Jackson sustained a concussion late in Sunday's game against Dallas, then had a seizure in the locker room and was taken to the hospital.

Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren said Jackson was in stable condition. The receiver was transferred to Baylor Medical Center, where he was expected to stay at least overnight.

Jackson never returned after taking a hard, high hit from Cowboys safety Darren Woodson with 5:20 left in the Seahawks' 17-14 win. Woodson was penalized for unnecessary roughness.

After the hit, Jackson stayed on the sideline and walked off the field with his teammates after the game. He was sitting in the training room, being observed by team physician Ed Khalfayan and talking to receiver Bobby Engram when the seizure occurred.

"They were sitting there, then all of a sudden, he went out," Holmgren said.
