SEATTLE -- Save for a pair of injuries to two rookie players, the Seahawks came out of Thursday night's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings "pretty healthy," according to head coach Pete Carroll.
"We came out pretty heathy," Carroll said after his club's 18-11 loss at CenturyLink Field. "I think Nick Vannett hurt his ankle a little bit. Jarran Reed aggravated his ankle that he hurt a week ago, but we don't think that's too bad. So we'll see what we do with Nick, but we'll come together with really our sights set on really a good, fundamental week of work and see if we can't clean up some stuff."
On top of injury updates on the rookie tight end Vannett and rookie defensive tackle Reed, Carroll gave an encouraging update on running back Thomas Rawls, who will practice "full-go" next week leading up to the club's third preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys.
"He's going to practice full-go next week and we'll just see what that means," Carroll said of Rawls. "No deadlines, no pressure on making a decision or any of that. We're just going to go with him and see how it goes."
During a pregame interview on 710 ESPN Seattle, general manager John Schneider said Rawls could possibly get some carries during the Seahawks' fourth exhibition game.
"By late in the week we'll just make a determination where it is and we'll go to the next week if we have to," Carroll said. "He looks very good. He's making great progress. He looks explosive and tough and all that. With a regular week of work, maybe we'll think about what that means. I don't know. Maybe it means he plays, maybe he doesn't."
