Seahawks mid-week injury update: Prosise uncertain for Sunday
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks remain relatively healthy heading into week four of the regular season. A few key players are dealing with some nagging injuries, however. Here is who they are and their current status.
The Seahawks excellent receiver Baldwin injured his groin late against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. He missed most of the final series. Before that, he was having an excellent game and was targeted 15 times.
But it takes a lot for Baldwin to miss a game. Since the beginning of the 2013 season, Baldwin has not missed a game. Coach Pete Carroll said on Wednesday he expects the receiver to be able to play against the Colts. How effective Baldwin can be is still to be seen, though.
Prosise hurt his ankle at some point versus the Titans. The Seahawks running back has been oft-injured in his career. Unlike last year, though, Prosise has not been extremely productive when he has played in 2017. Carroll intimated that Prosise is doubtful the play against the Colts. This would mean more playing time for Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy (who?). Plus, Chris Carson will still get the bulk of the carries. As he should.
Jimmy Graham took Wednesday off with his ankle issue. He was fine against the Titans and did not suffer more injury so he should be good to go for Sunday.
Earl Thomas (knee) and Richard Sherman (Achilles) were held out of practice probably as just a precaution. Veterans needs a day off, of course.

Same probably goes for Luke Joeckel. He got rest on Wednesday for his knee. So far, though, his one-year contract with the Seahawks does not appear to be heading into two years or more. He needs to play better.
