Pete Carroll Shares Injury Updates From Preseason Finale

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll updated the media about the team's injuries following their 23-21 victory over the Oakland Raiders.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll provided the latest injury updates following Seattle's 23-21 win in their preseason finale over the Oakland Raiders.

Rookie cornerback DeAndre Elliott was carted off the field during the game and did not return. Carroll said that Elliott and tight end Joe Sommers were two players who sustained ankle sprains.

Speaking of tight ends, for the second game in a row, Jimmy Graham was on the field beforehand going through warmups with the team. Carroll was encouraged by the progress Graham has made since being taken off the PUP list. 

"Jimmy's close," Carroll said in his post-game press conference. "His confidence is way up. He's demonstrated he can go out and battle with us on the practice field which is the same thing that Thomas [Rawls] did.

"He's doing everything he can to get back and we're really fired up for him. He looked great again in pre-game."

On the defensive line, Jordan Hill "might've tweaked his hamstring", per Carroll. Michael Bennett was inactive due to a procedure on his toe earlier this week — one Carroll said Bennett has been doing for years. 

"Michael Bennett's in great shape and had a three-day process that he needed to take care of." Carroll said.

The Seahawks return to the practice field on Monday to prepare for their season opener against the Miami Dolphins and hope to have all players participating.
