Injury Updates From Pete Carroll On Day 1 Of 2018 Seahawks Training Camp

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll updated the health status of a handful of players following Day 1 of training camp. 

The Seahawks kicked off training camp Thursday morning at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center, and while most of the 90-man roster was able to participate, a few players were sidelined or limited by injuries. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll provided updates on those players following practice.

Cornerback Dontae Johnson, defensive end Dion Jordan and tight end Clayton Wilson all open camp on the active/physically unable to perform list, meaning all are eligible to come off of that list at any point and return to practice. Tight end Ed Dickson, meanwhile, opens camp on the non-football injury list, though he too can return at any point.  

A couple of other players were on the field but are still being eased back in because of past injuries, including defensive end Frank Clark, who had wrist surgery in the offseason, and receiver Brandon Marshall, who had ankle and toe operations last season.

Here's what Carroll said about some of those injuries:

Dontae Johnson (foot)

"He had a pretty good report yesterday. I don't think it's any longer than two weeks. I don't think so. I'm optimistic on that one, but he's healing and everything has gone right and everything, they've just got to clear him."

Dion Jordan (undisclosed injury)

"Dion's got an issue we're working on right now. It's going to be a few weeks for him before we're able to get him back out."

Ed Dickson (groin)

"Ed Dickson came up with a little groin thing in the last couple of weeks, so we've just got to start him slow. So we're going to hold him out for a little bit until he starts feeling better. It's a minor groin injury, but it is something worthy of note, so we've got to hold him back."

Frank Clark (wrist)

"Frank had a wrist operation a while back this summer, and he's coming back from it and working hard to get back in action."

Brandon Marshall (ankle, toe)

"Brandon worked today. We're going to ramp him up. He's ready for camp, but we want to make sure we bring him along. We have a number of guys we're progressing along to make sure that the comeback is real and they feel good about it and we build them up and don't rush, so Brandon's one of those guys."
