The Seahawks were back on the practice field Monday following a day off, though a few players were off or limited due to various injuries. Following practice, head coach Pete Carroll updated the status of players not participating, including middle linebacker Bobby Wagner.
“Bobby had a little procedure done," Carroll said. "He’s going to get a little break here just to get right, a little thing that we do with him… It’s something we’ve done regularly and we’re doing it again now at this time of year.”
Asked about the timing of the procedure, Carroll said, “Just to make sure we have plenty of time between the games and all that stuff. We’ve got a big two weeks coming up, ten days coming up after this game, so he’ll have really two weeks before the next game.”
Asked if Wagner will play in any preseason games, Carroll said, “he could likely.”
Carroll later added that Wagner “has had the procedure before, it’s not his first time… He has done it a couple of times before, it has been successful for him and it has helped him out over the years, so it just felt like it was time to do it.”
Receiver DK Metcalf
Rookie receiver DK Metcalf was held out of Saturday’s mock game with an oblique injury, and while he suited up for Monday’s practice and took part in some of the early individual work, he sat out the team portion of practice.
Asked if Metcalf will be able to play in Thursday’s preseason game, Carroll said, “It looks like it. We’ve got to wait and see though. He could have practiced today; we wanted to get another day of clearance just to make sure that it’s not lingering.”
Tight end Ed Dickson
Dickson remained sidelined Monday with a knee injury that could end up needing surgery.
“We’re determining whether he needs surgery or not, that’s what we’re determining, and I don’t have the final word on that,” Carroll said. “… It’s one that’s going to take us probably four or five weeks, maybe six weeks at the most (if surgery is needed). It’s very minor, but we’ve got to figure out exactly how to get this done and the timing of it and all.”
Defensive tackle Jarran Reed
“He had to go home, he had a family thing,” Carroll said.
Linebacker Mychal Kendricks
“He’s got a business thing he’s working on,” Carroll said.
Tight end Jacob Hollister
“He had a little groin thing, we’ve got to check it out and see how long it’s going to take to get him back,” Carroll said. “It’s minor.”
Defensive end Rasheem Green
“He’s got a sore elbow,” Carroll said. “He has an old elbow injury, he’s got a couple of little this’s and that’s in there that make it a little tough every once in a while, so we rested him today.”
Safety Lano Hill
Additionally, safety Lano Hill passed his physical and has come off of the physically unable to perform list. Hill did not participate in Monday’s practice, working instead off to the side with an athletic trainer, but he did take the field in a helmet for the first time during camp.
