Encouraging News On Duane Brown, Not Enough "Positive Progress" For Chris Carson & Other Seahawks Injury Updates

Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll heading into Week 11.


Seahawks running back Chris Carson returned to practice last week after missing the previous four games with a neck injury, but he was not cleared to return for Seattle's Week 10 game against the Packers.

Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll said prior to Wednesday's practice that Carson wouldn't be on the practice field for that day's work, and asked what the issue was, Carroll said, "We didn't make the positive progress that we had hoped, so we're still working with it. I don't have a good update for you, if you don't mind, we're just going to wait a couple days and we'll and have more. But he didn't make positive process forward that we wanted, so we just have to wait."

On a more positive note, left tackle Duane Brown appears to be on track to get back after leaving Sunday's game with a hip injury. Carroll said Brown won't practice Wednesday, though he did go through the morning walkthrough, and it's worth noting that even when healthy, Brown often gets Wednesday off as a veteran rest day.

"Duane seems to have come out of the weekend pretty well," Carroll said. "We'll see, we'll go day to day with him, but he went through the walkthrough today, which is really encouraging.

In more positive injury news, Carroll said safety Ryan Neal, who came out of the game to be evaluated for a concussion, will be able to practice Wednesday. 

Carroll was also asked about quarterback Russell Wilson, who returned to action last week after missing three games with a finger injury that required surgery.

"He feels fine," Carroll said. "He threw the ball really well in the walkthrough today. So after that first really full week, he came out of it in good shape. He's still taking care of himself as he's progressing, because this is only Week 6 (post surgery), but he felt really good about it."

The Seattle Seahawks and Delta Air Lines attended a recent Merging Vets and Players (MVP) meeting to surprise Matt Mickunas with the Delta Community Captain award. Mickunas, a former Army Infantry Senior NCO, is an active and standout participant in the MVP program and regional president for the Paralyzed Veterans of America's PNW chapter.
