Seahawks injury updates after Eagles game
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks made it through Sunday’s win against the Eagles with no injury news. This is a very good thing as Seattle has struggled with health this year. Coach Pete Carroll updated the players dealing with pain on 710 ESPN Seattle’s Brock and Salk Show.
The last two days have been good for the Seahawks. First, there was just a tiny win on Sunday. (Sarcasm, that is.) Secondly, Pete Carroll said on Monday that Seattle had no new injuries from the Eagles game. Plus, a certain running back might be coming back fairly soon.
Chris Carson. You know him, right? He’s the guy who still leads all Seattle running backs in rushing yards after 12 games. But he hasn’t played since week four. Carson hurt his ankle and broke his leg against the Indianapolis Colts. But Carson has shown a great ability to recover.
According to Carroll, Carson needs “probably a couple of weeks of practice time I would think, one week, then show he can come back the next week, before he could play.” But Carroll was clear: “Chris is coming back.”
Watching Mike Davis play recently has teased at what it was like to have Carson. Now having Davis and Carson would be very nice.
Nazair Jones might be out a little while. Jones has been very good in his rookie year and will continue to get better. A future interior line of Jones and Jarran Reed is a pretty good future. Carroll said that Jones is “wait and see” for this week and beyond.
The Seahawks are in no worse shape moving forward than they were on Sunday. And what Seattle had on the field against the Eagles was good enough to defeat a 10-1 team.
