Russell Wilson Healing "Tremendously" & Other Seahawks Injury Updates From Pete Carroll

Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll following Sunday’s win over the Jaguars.


The Seahawks came out of Sunday's 31-7 win over the Jaguars with only one new injury, a groin strain suffered by right cornerback D.J. Reed in the fourth quarter. 

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Reed had "a groin pull. Some kind of groin strain," though he did not yet know the severity of the injury. 

Asked if Reed could have returned to the game had it been closer, Carroll said no. With Tre Brown taking over at left cornerback this week, Sidney Jones IV, who had been starting at that spot in previous weeks, came into the game to replace Brown. 

Of course, the big injury story over the next two weeks will now become the status of quarterback Russell Wilson, who is eligible to return from injured reserve when the Seahawks return from the bye. 

As has been the case whenever Carroll has been asked about his quarterback, he declined to provide any timeline for Wilson's potential return, but did say the quarterback is healing well and making good progress from the finger injury that knocked him out of Seattle's Week 5 game against the Rams. 

"I don't know any updates right now," Carroll said. "But his finger looks way better, it has really healed tremendously, so he's getting closer. We'll see what happens."

The Seattle Seahawks take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in their eighth game of the 2021 season at Lumen Field. This album will be updated throughout the game. Game Action photos are presented by Washington Lottery.
