Injury Updates On Uchenna Nwosu, Abraham Lucas and Jerrick Reed II

Seahawks president of football operations/general manager John Schneider and coach Mike Macdonald provided a few offseason injury updates Tuesday at the NFL Annual Meeting.


ORLANDO—Seahawks coach Mike Macdonald and president of football operations/general manager John Schneider both met with the media during the NFL Annual Meeting on Tuesday, and among the many topics they covered, those two provided a few updates on players trying to come back from injuries that cut short their 2023 seasons.

Uchenna Nwosu, who had surgery during the season after tearing his pectoral muscle, is on track to be ready for the start of the season, as is right tackle Abraham Lucas, who had knee surgery this offseason, Schneider said. Safety Jerrick Reed II, who was a special teams standout as a rookie before tearing his ACL, is making good progress as well, but it's still not clear if he'll be back for the start of the season, Schneider said.

On Nwosu, Schneider noted how much that injury affected the team and the defense when it happened, saying, "We missed him, that was a big loss for us when he got hurt. He's a great leader, incredibly tough, plays super hard. So when we lost him last year, that was big."

Macdonald said of Lucas, "From all accounts everything is going well. No timetables right now for you but seeing him in the building and things like that he is confident and all the reports from down there are saying that everything is on schedule.''

Macdonald didn't want to give a firm timeline on Lucas' return, but said, "I would say we are really optimistic on it and then we'll go from there. But all accounts it's positive.''

On Nwosu, Macdonald added, "Talking to him, man he's really optimistic. He's fired up for a new opportunity, just watching him what an awesome player just on the edge, rugged, plays our style of ball. And he's going to be leading the charge out there from the outside in.''

Schneider said Reed is "doing great. He was one of the best special teams players in the league for a minute."

As for the being ready for the start of the season, Schneider said, "It's going to be close, but he's working his tail off."
