Seahawks "Pretty Healthy" Coming Out Of Sunday's Win In Philadelphia

Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll a day after his team’s wild-card playoff win in Philadelphia.

While the Seahawks have dealt with numerous injuries this season, including ones that have landed several starters on injured reserve, they did manage to escape Sunday's wild-card win in Philadelphia without making that injury situation too much worse. 

"All in all we came out pretty clean in the game, pretty healthy," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.

One player, defensive end Ziggy Ansah, did leave the game with an injury, a stinger sustained when he collided with Shaquill Griffin while both were attempting to make a tackle, and Carroll said, they still "don't know about Ziggy right now at this point."

Also uncertain is the status of two offensive linemen who missed the game with injuries, left tackle Duane Brown (knee) and left guard Mike Iupati (neck).

"I can't tell you much about those guys until we get into this week," Carroll said of Brown and Iupati.

Iupati has battled stingers for multiple weeks and had previously been able to play through them, but Carroll said, "He had a few episodes the week before, and it just didn't quiet down in time. It has quieted down when he has had episodes in the past. And he's still symptomatic today, so I can't tell you what's going to happen this week."

Brown is now two weeks removed from knee surgery, and while the hope is that he could get back this week, the Seahawks won't know about his status until later in the week.

"I can't tell you until we get him back out here," Carroll said. "He's doing some stuff with the guys right now. I don't have any updated information for you. We're going to try to see if he can get back."

Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who has been dealing with a core injury since Week 10, one that has caused him to miss multiple games, appears to have come out of the game OK.

"So far he's OK," Carroll said. "It sounds like, the report I just got, that he's playing this week and he'll be all right to make it. We'll have to manage him through the week."

Receiver Jaron Brown missed Sunday's game, but the issue was not the knee injury he sustained in Week 16, but rather a family situation, Carroll said.

"This was a family situation, and I understand he's back already, he'll be back in the meetings today, so he should be fine," Carroll said. "This week going forward, he should be OK."
