Phoenix: Russell Wilson threw for two touchdowns as the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Arizona Cardinals 22-16 on Thursday but the victory was costly as cornerback Richard Sherman sustained a ruptured Achilles.

Sherman was the biggest name hurt but not the only one to go down as the Seahawks and Cardinals both suffered a rash of injuries in the battle of attrition for second place in the NFC West Division.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Sherman needed surgery and likely would be out for the year.

“We definitely lost some of our top players,” quarterback Wilson said. “It is a tough sport we play. You get a little emotional because guys like him work so hard to be great. He (Sherman) deserves it all, unfortunately that happened.”

Sherman appeared to injure his heel in the third quarter after making a tackle in front of the crowd of 64,600 at the University of Phoenix stadium. He stayed in the game and limped around for several plays before finally heading to the locker room.

The game was marred by injuries and penalties as Seattle had nine players leave the game for various reasons.

The list of injuries includes, defensive tackle Jarran Reed (hamstring), running back C.J. Prosise (ankle) and linebacker Michael Wilhoite (calf), each of whom did not return. Left tackle Duane Brown also sustained an ankle injury.
