Like most teams around the league, the Seattle Seahawks have a number of players battling injuries. Fortunately for Seattle, the team had an extra day to recover this week due to the Monday night schedule.
Coach Pete Carroll provided some player injury updates ahead of the Week 7 contest against the Saints.
Running back Alex Collins: “He’s going to practice today so that’s a good sign,” Carroll said. “He went through walkthrough today and looked okay. Really, a number of guys that got banged up a little bit in the game were able to go through the walkthrough today so we will see what we can get from them in a limited fashion in practice today. It is really encouraging in that regard.”
Guard Damien Lewis: “Let me just say this, all of these guys have to see what happens at practice and see how it feels afterwards but it’s really positive signs.”
Defensive end Darrell Taylor: “Darrell Taylor won’t get much action today, but he feels really good,” Carroll explained. “He has a stiff neck, that’s what he came out with. After all of that we went through to protect him, it’s like he slept bad on his neck, and he has a stiff neck. He really feels like he’s playing, he doesn’t have any doubts that he’s playing so we will hold out hope that it is the case.”
Cornerback Sidney Jones: “He’s going to get a little bit of work today,” Carroll said. “He’s bouncing back a little ahead of schedule from where we thought so he will get some snaps in practice, and we will see what that means.”
The final injury report of the week will be issued after Saturday’s walkthrough.
