Devon Witherspoon Has "A Really Good Chance" To Play This Week & Other Seahawks Injury Updates

Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll on his weekly radio show on Seattle Sports 710AM.


Devon Witherspoon, the No. 5 overall pick in this year's draft, could make his Seahawks debut Sunday when they face the Lions in Detroit.

During his weekly radio show on Seattle Sports 710AM, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said "there's a really good chance" Witherspoon will play Sunday after sitting out the opener due to the hamstring injury that kept him out of the preseason and much of camp.

Witherspoon was able to practice throughout last week, and Carroll said the rookie corner will be full-go in practice this week as he gets ready to potentially make his debut.

"He's got to make it through the week," Carroll said. "He'll practice full all week long, and he'll be practicing to play."

As for injuries coming out of the game, Carroll said it's too early to know the status of starting tackles Charles Cross and Abraham Lucas, both of whom left the game with injuries.

"We've got some work to do," Carroll said. "Charles hurt his toe, and he's a big man, so we've got to see how he takes to that during the week. We won't know for a while. With Abe, it's just an old knee thing he's got going on, he's got an aggravation deal that he's dealing with. We've just got to see how he handles it. It just got really uncomfortable late in the game, and he had to come out."
