Pete Carroll Shares Injury Updates On Troymaine Pope, Brock Coyle, Damontre Moore & Will Tukuafu

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll provides injury updates on players following the team's 38-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Troymaine Pope was the one injury Pete Carroll reported following Sunday's 38-10 road loss to the Green Bay Packers, and on Monday, the Seattle head coach provided another update on the Seahawks' rookie running back.

"He's got a pretty severe ankle sprain," Carroll told reporters at Virginia Mason Athletic Center. 

Carroll reaffirmed what he said last night in that Pope's injury is to the same ankle he hurt in the Seahawks' Week 11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. That setback forced Pope to miss Seattle's Week 12 game at Tampa Bay before he returned to work in Week 13 against the Carolina Panthers. Carroll did not provide a timeline for Pope's return.

Elsewhere on the injury front, Carroll said defensive end Damontre Moore, who was inactive at Green Bay with a foot injury, "doesn't look like" he'll be able to make it back in time for Thursday night's home game against the Los Angeles Rams. Linebacker Brock Coyle, though, "has a chance" to return after missing the past three weeks with a foot injury of his own.

"It's an unusual week, we'll see what happens. We won't really be able to test him like we would normally like to, but Brock has a chance," Carroll said. "He was kind of close last week, so we'll see what happens. I don't have that for sure yet."

Fullback Will Tukuafu, meanwhile, who suffered a concussion in Week 13 against the Panthers and missed this past weekend's game against the Packers as a result, remains in the concussion protocol.

"He's still in the protocol as of today," Carroll said of Tukuafu. "He hasn't returned yet."

At fullback, the Seahawks added four-time Pro Bowler Marcel Reece, who played receiver at the University of Washington, to the roster last week. In his first game with the Seahawks, Reece played 17 percent of the team's offensive snaps, making two catches for 38 yards, including a 31-yard grab that was Seattle's longest play from scrimmage at Lambeau Field.

"He did fine," Carroll added of Reece's initial action with Seattle. "Didn't play a lot of plays, but he did fine in the opportunity that he had and gave us some stuff that we kind of like. You couldn't see a lot of it in this plan, but we'll be able to use him in quite a number of ways."
