Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll Provides Injury Updates On Jon Ryan, Michael Bennett And More

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll shared injury updates on punter Jon Ryan, defensive end Michael Bennett and more during his Tuesday afternoon press conference.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll met with the media prior to Tuesday's practice and provided health updates on several players, including defensive end Michael Bennett and punter Jon Ryan, who both left last week's victory over the Los Angeles Rams due to injury.

Bennett, who injured his neck while tackling Rams running back Todd Gurley, went through Wednesday's walkthrough, though Carroll implied that the defensive end could be limited in practice this week.

"Mike's doing all right," Carroll said. "He's participating in walkthrough today. We'll take care of him during the week to make sure he's good and ready to play. We'll know more after we get on the practice field the next couple of days."

Punter Jon Ryan remains in the concussion protocol, but Carroll noted, "He's with us and in meetings and stuff like that and doing fine with all of that, but he's still got to get through it."

Asked if he anticipated having to sign a punter this week, Carroll said, "No, I don't, but we're ready."

Running back C.J. Prosise, who has missed the past four games with a fractured scapula, is improving, Carroll said, keeping alive the possibility of a postseason return.

"He's doing well," Carroll said. "We're getting some good feedback, he's doing a lot of movement stuff now, his rehab is getting real serious now. He's four weeks now into it, so a couple weeks from now there's a chance that he's in pretty good shape. He's got to work really hard these next two weeks to get back in conditioning, because there was a good part of this, the first three weeks, where he couldn't run. He's having to catch up now, so we'll see what happens. We're hopeful, that's why we've kept him on (the roster) and all that. We'll see what happens."

Additionally, defensive end Damontre Moore will go on injured reserve this week, Carroll said, the result of the foot injury that has kept him out of three of the past four games.
