After a weekend off, the Seahawks were back on the shores of Lake Washington Monday for a 'Competition Wednesday' practice ahead of Friday's preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs at CenturyLink Field.
Following the early afternoon workout at Virginia Mason Athletic Center, Pete Carroll shared a few injury updates. Here's what the Seattle head coach had to say:
- Left tackle George Fant will undergo surgery after going down with a knee injury in last Friday's preseason win over the Minnesota Vikings. "He'll do a fantastic job of coming back and he'll make it back for next season and all that." In addition to his ACL, Carroll noted there is damage to Fant's MCL. "There is a little MCL work in there, no cartilage at all which is really a good sign, that makes it so the surfaces were not damaged at all, that really will help him in terms of long-term recovery too."
- After a week away from the team to take care of a process with his knee, linebacker K.J. Wright was back at practice Monday. "K.J.'s fine," Carroll said. "We just eased him in today. He'll go full-go tomorrow. He feels great. Everything worked out beautifully. The week that he took to take care of himself, the process he went through seemed to be perfect, so he feels great."

- Cornerback Jeremy Lane and receiver Doug Baldwin were eased into action last week against the Vikings after nursing injuries. "It was [Lane's] first game back. You'll notice Doug didn't play much either. We kind of treated that as a first game for them, I don't know if they had a dozen plays or something like that."
- Receiver Amara Darboh, who was evaluated for a concussion during last Friday's game, is OK this week, Carroll said. "Yes, he is fine. He cleared everything."
- Cornerback Mike Tyson did not play against Minnesota with what Carroll called a pulled groin.
- A tight groin also held C.J. Prosise out against the Vikings, but Carroll is hoping the second-year running will see play this week against Kansas City. "He's running right now, he's getting his work done today," Carroll said. "He just tightened up in pregame. I watched it happen right before my eyes. He was working, he was going hard, then you could see he kind of felt it. He hasn't quite gotten rid of it. He has had MRIs, there's no result in the MRI, so that's a really good sign. We've just got to get loosened up and ready to go. We'd love to see him play this weekend."
