Branden Jackson Back With Team & Other Seahawks Injury Updates From Pete Carroll

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll provided an update Monday on defensive end Branden Jackson, who left Saturday’s mock game in an ambulance.


Two days after he left CenturyLink Field in an ambulance, defensive end Branden Jackson was back with the team at the VMAC, though it will be some time before he is back on the practice field, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.

Jackson was knocked unconscious by a helmet-to-helmet collision with tackle Cedric Ogbuehi in Saturday's mock game, causing the scrimmage session to be cut short, but Carroll said Monday that Jackson is "back in the building with us today, he's in meetings today. We've got to check him out and make sure that—nothing was really injured, he's just recovering from such a big smack. So we'll see what that means."

Asked more on Jackson's status later in his press conference, Carroll said, "There's some concerns that they're going to check out to make sure we're really clear on, so it's going to take us little bit of time. We're going to be very deliberate about taking time. Any time you get hit in the head like that, we've got to make sure we take all of the time that it takes and all of the considerations. There's a lot of stuff we're going to check him out on. We want to make sure he's OK."

In other injury news, Carroll said receiver Phillip Dorsett II came out of the mock game with a sore foot and won't practice Monday.

Bruce Irvin, who missed the mock game with what Carroll called a slight hip flexor injury, told reporters, "I'm good" when asked about the injury in a video press conference that followed Carroll's on Monday.
