“We are really healthy,<strong>Womens Pat Tillman Jersey</strong>, ” Carroll said following the team’s practice. “For the most part.”
Cornerback Richard Sherman was a surprise on the injury report when he was listed as questionable with a thigh injury after not practicing on Friday. Carroll brushed off the questionable tag.
it really just felt something that we wanted to make sure that we really look after and give him a legs day as well,<strong>Authentic T. J. Logan Jersey</strong>,“Yeah,<strong>Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey</strong>,” Carroll said. “But we have to put him on the report for that. He should be fine.”
Wide receiver Tyler Locket who battled a knee injury through the bulk of the preseason is listed as questionable but carries the same optimistic backing from Carroll after being a full participant in practice Wednesday,<strong>Womens Larry Fitzgerald Jersey</strong>, Thursday and Friday.
” Carroll said. “Really excited about that,<strong>Womens Patrick Peterson Jersey</strong>, he’s had a great preparation,“Tyler’s ready to go, and really excited for him. He’s such a spark for us, and so we’ll be able to get him involved in all phases.”
Defensive end Frank Clark (wrist) also got an optimistic review from Carroll on Friday.
” Carroll said. “He had two sore wrists that he was dealing with,<strong>Authentic Patrick Peterson Jersey</strong>,“Frank is ready to go, but he practiced well the last two days.”
The outlook on running back Thomas Rawls (ankle) and strong safety Delano Hill (shoulder) is a bit foggier, however.
(Rawls) worked out well again today. That’ll go all the way up to game day,<strong>Authentic David Johnson Jersey</strong>,” Carroll said. “(Delano’s) shoulder, we are not quite sure yet,“Yeah,<strong>Womens T. J. Logan Jersey</strong>,we are going to go all the way to Sunday to see how he is. He got enough work done so he is ready to play,<strong>Authentic Larry Fitzgerald Jersey</strong>, but we did protect him during the week so we will see. He is really close to being back.”
Carroll also said that defensive tackle Jarran Reed (shoulder) was ready to play on Sunday. The only player listed doubtful on the injury report is linebacker Micael Wilhoite,<strong>Womens David Johnson Jersey</strong>, who is battling a calf injury. Carroll will be happy to have a healthy squad against one of the NFC’s best.
we need to be healthy, you know,“Yeah,” Carroll added. “They are that good, so these guys are ready to play good football. Jeremy [Lane] has really had just a tremendous offseason. I am really excited about him fitting in with our guys. We have raved about Earl’s [Thomas] work. Kam [Chancellor] has been right on point and [Richard] Sherm(an) has never been more consistent than he has at this point in an offseason. I think he has been great at it.
but we all know,“Everything lines up well, we are going to need it all to play against a fine club.”
The Seahawks’ regular season kicks off at 1:25 p.m. PT at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
