Pete Carroll met with the media before the Seahawks' "Competition Wednesday" practice at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center. Here are a few injury updates from the Seattle head coach as his team begins preparations for Sunday's Week 6 matchup with the NFC South-leading Atlanta Falcons at CenturyLink Field:
1. Russell Wilson "Looks Great And That's A Great Sign For Us"
Quarterback Russell Wilson, who has been slowed by ankle and knee sprains through the season's first four weeks "looks great and that's a great sign for us," Carroll said. Following Seattle's "Bonus Monday" practice coming off of the Week 5 bye, Carroll said Wilson looked "fine" and "normal" in his return to work.
2. Tyler Lockett "Feels The Best He's Felt"
Tyler Lockett (knee), who was limited in the receiving and return games in Week 3 and 4, "looks really good" and "feels very good" as the Seahawks continue practice this week, Carroll said.
"I made a point of hanging with him today and we’ll see how he gets through the week of course, but he feels the best he’s felt and he’s ready to kind of get out there and get running around and really get going," Carroll said. "He was frustrated the last couple weeks that he couldn’t contribute more.”
3. Jarran Reed "In Good Shape And Ready To Go"
Starting nose tackle Jarran Reed (hip) missed the Seahawks' Week 4 game to injury, but Carroll said the rookie second-round pick would be on the practice field on Wednesday and should be able to play this weekend against Atlanta.
"He looks good," Carroll said. "He’ll practice today and it’ll be important to see how he comes out of the practice. The trainers think he’s in good shape and ready to go. We anticipate that he’ll be able to contribute.”
4. "One Day At A Time" For C.J. Prosise
Carroll said C.J. Prosise had a test on the wrist injury that has kept him out of all but one game this season.
"We’re going to see," Carroll said. "He’s going to be wearing a different thing on his hand today and we’ll see how that goes. We’re really just going one day at a time now.”
