Optimism On Al Woods & Other Seahawks Injury Updates

Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll’s Wednesday press conference.


The Seahawks won't see much of Al Woods at practice this week, but the hope is that the veteran tackle can make it back for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Woods, who left last week's game in New Orleans with a knee injury, isn't expected to practice Wednesday or Thursday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said, but the Seahawks are "optimistically looking towards the weekend. We're going to rest him a couple of days though to make sure—he would rest one of these two days anyway—we're going to give him both of them (off) and we'll bring him back out on Friday and see how he's doing."

The report was less positive on receiver and special teams mainstay Penny Hart, who injured his hamstring in the game.

"He's got a pulled hammy and it's still sore," Carroll said. "It's going to be a little bit for him."

As for guard Gabe Jackson, who left the game with a hip injury, his status won't be known until later in the week.

"I don't know yet," Carroll said. "We're going to wait all the way through the week. We're going to give him a break and see if he can respond, don't know that yet."

Receiver Marquise Goodwin, who missed the game with a knee injury, is on track to return to practice this week, Carroll said.

As for players on injured reserve with a chance to get back this season, Carroll said outside linebacker Alton Robinson is "getting really close" to being back. Outside linebacker Darryl Johnson, meanwhile, "is still a few weeks away."

The Seahawks face the Cardinals at State Farm Stadium for Week 9 of the 2022 season. Take a look back at photos from previous games between the two teams.
