Injury Updates From Pete Carroll Heading Into Week 11 vs Packers

The Seahawks have a quick turnaround this week, hosting the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night, but with a couple of starters being held out of Sunday’s loss in Los Angeles, Seattle has a chance to be pretty healthy even on a short week.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said running back Chris Carson “is going to be healthy this week,” after being held out Sunday with a hip injury.

Also expected back after a one-game absence is right guard D.J. Fluker, who was inactive Sunday due to a calf injury.

“The projection is that D.J. will play in this game,” Carroll said. “We didn’t know if he would be able to get through that last game, with the hopes of making a full showing this week. So we’re counting on him, he should be out there on the field working with us today.”

Carroll was also encouraged by the early reports on safety Bradley McDougald, who has been dealing with a knee injury that limited his playing time in the past two games.

“He had a really good showing in the game,” Carroll said. “Physically he came out of it much better than he was the last couple of weeks, so we’re very encouraged he’s going to be OK for this week. He might have turned a corner a little bit in his rehab.”

Delano Hill, who took over for McDougald at one point in the game, came away with a quadriceps injury, leading to McDougald returning to the game.

“He got banged up in the game, didn’t get a chance to play as much as we had hoped he would, but he did fine in his opportunities that he had,” Carroll said. “It was pretty limited though.”

Carroll was uncertain on the status of linebacker K.J. Wright, who was unable to finish the game. Wright missed the first six games of the season recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, and was listed as questionable heading into Sunday’s game.

“K.J. wasn’t able to finish the game,” Carroll said. “We’ll let you know in the next couple of days. If we were practicing today, he couldn’t practice, so we’ll let you know.”

Carroll also said that running back J.D. McKissic won’t come off of injured reserve this week to return to practice, but could next week.

“Not yet, but he’s getting close,” Carroll said. “We think we’ll use this long week here and get it so the next time out we’ll be ready to go with him.”

Below are the practice reports for both teams, though it’s worth noting that participation designations are estimations, as neither team actually practiced one day after a game—though Seattle did hold a walk-thru workout late in the day.
