After spending the last two days at a Bay Area hospital, Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett returns to Seattle on Wednesday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Seahawks owner Jody Allen provided her plane to get Lockett back to Seattle.
Lockett, despite his bruised leg, is expected to be ready to play Philadelphia after Seattle's departure.
Head coach Pete Carroll said on Tuesday that Lockett had had a severe bruise on the tibia requiring immediate treatment.
Carroll said Lockett had stayed at the hospital to make sure that the swelling caused by the bruise was not a problem.
Lockett is injured in the fourth quarter of Monday's overtime win of 27 to 24 on the The San Francisco 49ers, although Carroll does not know exactly when or how Lockett was injured. He did not play in overtime.
Lockett leads the Seahawks in receptions (62), receiving yards (793) and touchdowns (six). The fifth-year receiver is tied for fourth in the NFL receiving and fifth in receiving.
