Wide receiver Tyler Lockett and the rest of the Seattle Seahawks served the San Francisco 49ers their only loss of the year in Week 10. The 49ers then returned the favor with a true example of good sportsmanship.

San Franciso provided Lockett, who suffered a severe leg bruise in the game, with the medical device he needed to begin treatment.

“In the hospital after the game, sources say Lockett wanted to know if medical personnel had a Game Ready device — a new-age, high-end compression therapy unit used to accelerate recovery,” NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported. “The hospital did not have the device, which is used almost exclusively in athletics. Lockett then made an odd request: Do the 49ers have a Game Ready he could use?”

According to Rapoport, Lockett’s agent Andrew Kessler contacted the San Francisco staff with the request, and the 49ers’ training staff promptly delivered the unit.

Lockett, who remained two nights in the hospital, was able to recover more quickly over the bye and played against the Eagles this past weekend.

While Lockett may not be 100 percent just yet, it was with the aid of a division rival and their Game Ready machine that helped the wide receiver get back on his feet.

Good sportsmanship at its best.
