A day after left tackle Duane Brown left the game with a bicep injury, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll provided a positive update on the four-time Pro-Bowler.
"He's got a sore bicep," Carroll said. "There's a little bit of a strain there. So we've just got to wait and see—we'll hold him out a little bit—but he says, and we're thinking, that he'll play, but we'll see by the end of the week."
Earlier in the day during his weekly appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle, Carroll added that Brown "tested out OK," on Monday, a sign that tests revealed no significant damage.
Here's what Carroll had to say about the rest of Seattle's injury situation:
Safety Bradley McDougald
McDougald briefly left Sunday's game with an ankle injury and was replaced by rookie Marquise Blair, but was able to return to the game after missing only four plays.
"We won't know for a couple more days, but it's a slight sprained ankle, so he's moving around OK, so he's got a chance," Carroll said.
Safety Tedric Thompson
Thompson has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury, but could be back this week.
"He's in the mix to try to get back this week," Carroll said. "He'll have to show that he can get through the workload and make it through the week. But he's practicing with us this week for sure."
Running back Rashaad Penny
Penny missed Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury sustained in practice Friday, but has a chance to return this week as well.
"He'll be able to practice this week too, probably by Thursday, to some degree," Carroll said. "We need to see if he can tolerate it and what that means, we don't know that yet."
