Pete Carroll stepped to the podium prior to Wednesday's practice at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center and shared a few injury updates with the media ahead of his team's matchup with the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday night at CenturyLink Field. Here's some of what the head coach had to say about his club's health heading into Week 4:
- Doug Baldwin had a groin strain coming out of this past week's game against the Tennessee Titans and while his status for this week will be taken one day at a time, the Seahawks receiver remains optimistic and plans on suiting up against the Colts. "We're going to go day to day, see how it goes," Carroll said. "We won't practice him today. We'll wait really until Friday to see how he does and he's planning on playing." Asked if he'll play this Sunday, Baldwin said, "That is the plan."
- C.J. Prosise had his ankle looked at on Monday and the examination revealed a setback that could keep the running back out of this weekend's contest. "He's got an ankle that were concerned about," Carroll said. "We'll see how it goes, give him a couple days before we have to declare what's going on with him, but he has a significant ankle."
- If Prosise can't go against the Colts, Carroll said to expect more snaps for rookie J.D. McKissic, who's been a healthy scratch the first three weeks, to help fill Prosise's third-down role within Seattle's offense. "Chris Carson has been a factor in there, but I also think J.D. McKissic as a running back has been able to do all of those things," Carroll said. "He's got a real wide breadth of ability and he's looked really good when we've used him. So if C.J. isn't able to go, we'll see more of him."
- Rees Odhiambo also had his ankle examined coming out of the Seahawks' Week 3 game at Nissan Stadium, but Carroll said the team's starting left tackle came out "OK."
