Dee Eskridge Expected Back & Other Seahawks Injury Updates

Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll’s Monday press conference. 


The Seahawks played Sunday's game missing several players due to injury, and while the status of most of those players won't be known until later in the week, signs point to rookie receiver Dee Eskridge returning after missing the past two games with a concussion.

"He got a really good report coming out of the work he got done over the weekend," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "We'll see, we haven't seen him out here running around, but he feels really good and is excited about getting back."

Carroll said it's too soon to know if right tackle Brandon Shell (ankle), running back Rashaad Penny (calf) or linebacker Benson Mayowa (neck) will be back this week.

"Really, we don't know yet on those guys," he said. "We'll wait until Wednesday and know more on all three of those guys."

The Seahawks also could be getting some players back from injured reserve soon, with cornerback Tre Brown, tight end Colby Parkinson, tackle Cedric Ogbuehi all eligible to return as soon as this week. Even if they're not ready for game action right away, they could return to practice without immediately being added to the 53-man roster.

"All three of those guys are eligible to come back," Carroll said. "There are decisions to be made there to give them the opportunity, and we're excited about that. We'll know more in the next couple of days. They can come back before they're ready to play and start working. We're excited that those guys have a chance now. The three-week timeframe seemed to work out to the benefit of those guys so that they'll have a chance to possibly get out there."
