Seahawks coach Pete Carroll noted on Tuesday that defensive end Carlos Dunlap II came out of Seattle's Week 12 win in Philadelphia with a sore foot, and an MRI taken a day later revealed that the injury is not serious, but will be something the Seahawks have to monitor this week.
"He's got a sore foot," Carroll said. "There's a little something going on, but nothing serious. So we just need to see how he goes and handles the week. I can't tell you how he'll be on game day yet, but we're hopeful and he's hopeful he'll be able to play."
Another injury the Seahawks will be monitoring this week is a hamstring injury cornerback Tre Flowers had coming out of the game.
"His hamstring is bothering him a little bit coming out of the game," Carroll said. "We'll see how he looks today."
Running back Chris Carson, who returned from a four-game absence due to a foot injury, and while he's sore after his first game in over a month, he should be fine for Sunday's game against the Giants.
"Chris is a little sore coming out of the game," Carroll said. "It's the first time he's played in a while. I'm anxious to see how he feels this week. We'll work him through it. He didn't have a lot of carries in the game, but did take some good hits and delivered some really good ones. So we'll see how he's feeling. Should be fine for the ball game."
One injured player who won't be available this week, but should be soon, is cornerback Quinton Dunbar. Dunbar is currently on injured reserve due to a knee injury, but is eligible to come back next week and Carroll said he is on track to make it back then.
"He's got to wait one more week before he can come back, and I think he's going to be ready to do that. I think from the way things are going, he's got a chance."
Carroll also gave updates on running back Rashaad Penny and defensive end Darrell Taylor, who are trying to get back from injuries.
"We're going to get word by the end of the week here on Darrell," Carroll said. "Rashaad's getting real close to doing some stuff, so I'm excited to see if it's going to be these next couple days or next Monday, but we're right there for Rashaad to jump back in here."
Asked more about Taylor, Carroll said, "He didn't have a setback, but there was a point there where they wanted to clarify what's going to happen when he does come back. So we went back to the docs and he's got a couple interviews this week to clear the air on where we're going. We got him as far as we could take him at this point and now he's looking for final assurance that he's doing the right thing and all that. So we'll find that and we'll let you know when we know."
