Seahawks Injury Updates From Pete Carroll Ahead Of Week 6 Game vs. Cardinals

Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll ahead of his team’s Week 6 game against the Cardinals.


The Seahawks head into their Week 6 NFC West clash with Arizona with a couple of starters listed as doubtful due to injuries that knocked them out of last week's game.

Defensive tackle Al Woods "wasn't able to practice yet" this week, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said, hence his doubtful designation.

Woods' knee injury isn't considered a long-term concern, however.

"He was out running today trying to get ready," Carroll said.

Also doubtful is right guard Gabe Jackson, who left last week's game with a hip injury.

"He was pretty slowed down," Carroll said. "We've got him doubtful. It's never over, so we'll see what happens on Sunday."

The good news for the Seahawks is that they feel like they have three starting guards with Phil Haynes filling in, so there shouldn't be any drop-off in play.

"I really have liked Phil," Carroll said. "I don't think our play has dropped off at all. We have three starting guards. Whether it's right or left, it doesn't matter, Phil can jump in. He had a really good week again. He's up for it. There's no drop-off."

Among the players listed as questionable, Carroll indicated that Shelby Harris, Dee Eskridge and Marquise Goodwin, who were all full participants in Friday's practice, have a good chance to play.

Carroll said Harris, "Did fine in practice today, made it through, so he's got a chance."

On Eskridge, Carroll said, "He was sick early in the week, and he bounced back yesterday and had a good day yesterday and today, so he's coming out of it. He should be all right."

Goodwin, who missed last week's game with a knee injury, "Made it through the whole week," Carroll said. "The last two days he worked hard, so he's ready to go."

Cornerback Artie Burns, who returned last week from a groin injury, is back on the injury report and listed as questionable with what Carroll called "a little hip flexor that's bothered him a little bit, it just kind of flared up."

In non-injury news, Carroll said that Bruce Irvin, who signed to the practice squad this week, had an impressive first week back in Seattle. Though Carroll did acknowledge that it might be asking a lot of Irvin to elevate him as soon as this weekend after only three days of practice.

"He did quite well," Carroll said. "I was surprised by his workout—no offense, Bruce—then when he jumped out here with the fellas, he did a nice job. It's really quick to try to get him back out there immediately, but he looks like he can help us."

Carroll also said defensive end L.J. Collier, who returned to practice last week, is a candidate to come off injured reserve this week.

"He practiced today," Carroll said. "He got through it, so that's a really good sign that he can make it."
