The Seattle Seahawks are taking on the Tennessee Titans in Week 16 of the NFL season. Wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba was targeted for a deep pass, but it fell incomplete out of the endzone. The rookie wideout tried slowing down but ended up sliding into an unprotected part of the wall. His knee and ankle looked like they hit hard and he was attended to by trainers.

That was JSN’s first target of the game. DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Jake Bobo will be quarterback Geno Smith’s main targets if he misses any time when the Seahawks come back out for their next offensive possession. Smith-Njigbs has played in 14 games this season and has brought in 53 of his 79 targets for 541 yards and three touchdowns as the No. 3 wide receiver for Seattle.
