Three days removed from last Thursday night’s 19-17 preseason opening loss to the Colts, the Seahawks returned to the practice field on Sunday at Renton’s Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
Following the training camp workout, Pete Carroll updated the health status of several Seattle players, some of whom were injured in this past week’s game against Indianapolis. Here’s what the Seahawks head coach had to say:
T Jamarco Jones
Offensive tackle Jamarco Jones, who was carted off the CenturyLink Field turf after suffering a leg injury against the Colts, avoided any broken bones in his leg but has what Carroll called “a really serious ankle sprain.”
"It’s a high-ankle sprain plus,” Carroll said. “So he’s hobbling around pretty good right now.”
T Isaiah Battle
Fellow offensive tackle Isaiah Battle sprained his knee against the Colts but the injury isn’t expected to hold the fourth-year pro out for an extended period of time.
“He should be OK,” said Carroll. "It’s not serious, nothing showed up on the tests and stuff. He should be OK in a couple days. He’s day to day as well.”
WR David Moore
Receiver David Moore, who led all Seahawks pass catchers with two catches for 35 yards against Indianapolis, took a helmet to helmet hit on Thursday from Shamarko Thomas, resulting in an ejection for the Colts safety. Carroll said Moore went through concussion testing on the field after the play and has already cleared the concussion protocol.
“Yeah, he went through the testing and everything on the field and he’s already cleared the protocol,” Carroll said. "That was a legitimate hit. Fortunately he came out OK.”
RB C.J. Prosise
During his pregame radio interview Thursday night on 710 ESPN Seattle, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said that running back C.J. Prosise was working through a hip flexor injury. On Sunday, Carroll followed up noting Prosise’s status is “day to day."
"Really it’s day to day right now, so with tomorrow coming up it’s a big day for us and then the day off and then we head into game week, maybe by then is his shot to come back,” Carroll said. "But he’s running and he’s working on it. Not quite ready to cut him loose yet.”
DT Nazair Jones
Carroll said defensive tackle Nazair Jones has hip flexor injury but is expected to return in time for Seattle’s second preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
"He got work today,” said Carroll. "Should be able to get back in here in the next couple days. We expect him to play."
WR Amara Darboh
Carroll said receiver Amara Darboh is also dealing with a hip flexor setback but should return soon.
“He’s in the same boat,” Carroll said. "He got a little bit (of work) today, so he’s like day to day. We’re really close to getting him back too.”
DT Quinton Jefferson
While praising defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson for his effort in last Thursday’s game, Carroll revealed the third-year pro has been bothered by an ankle injury.
“He was real active, yeah. He did a nice job. He’s had a really good camp,” Carroll said of Jefferson before adding, "He’s got an ankle that’s been bothering him a little bit, slowed him up a little bit today, but he’s been really active. It’s like he’s come into his strength that he’s had a really good offseason and good work and he’s in there battling.”
TE Ed Dickson
Tight end Ed Dickson, who opened training camp on the non-football injury list, has been dealing with a quad issue that could keep him out a while, Carroll said.
“It’s still a bit now. He’s not one of those guys that’s on the verge of coming back yet,” said Carroll. “We’ve got to get through the quad strain that he’s got.”
WR Brandon Marshall
Finally, Brandon Marshall, whose work has been limited throughout training camp as the veteran receiver continues to come back from toe and ankle surgeries, “continues to be closer to full go, cut it loose,” said Carroll.
"He can play, but we haven’t really let him go up field, run down the field top speed and all that stuff yet,” Carroll said. "We’ve restricted him some and he’s been told to be restricted a little bit when he plays just to make sure we don’t have any setbacks. Today was his most active day and we’re going to continue to expand from there, so it’s looking very good.”
