The Seahawks were hoping to get Jamal Adams back after the bye week, and while that still could happen when they play at Arizona this week, the All-Pro safety's status for now at least remains up in the air.
"We need more information there," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.
Carroll said Adams, who has missed the past two games with a groin injury, would not practice Wednesday, and said when asked about both Adams and rookie linebacker Jordyn Brooks, "Each one of these are just one day at a time—see what happens and then see what happens the next day, how guys return, so we won't really know anything 'til later in the week."
Carroll said Adams has not suffered any sort of setback with the injury, and when asked what additional information they need to find out on Adams, Carroll said, "Whether he's full speed or not."
Brooks, who has missed two games with a knee injury, was expected to return to practice Wednesday, Carroll said, and his return, if it were to happen this week would be an exciting development for the first-round pick as well as for Seattle's defense.
"If that's what happens and he can play in the game, well that makes us happy now," Carroll said. "We're excited to get that guy out there. We'd love to see him play some more and get some action. He's just getting comfortable with our play."
Receiver Phillip Dorsett II remains on injured reserve with a foot injury, but he is getting closer to a return.
"I'm getting really good reports from Phil," Carroll said. "He's feeling good about his running, and we're just trying to make sure and guarantee that once he's back, he stays back. We don't want to rush that at all. But yesterday he said that was the best day he's had since he came to camp. So he's getting closer, and we're pretty excited about that."
One player who has recovered from an injury is linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who tore his ACL late last season, and who on Wednesday re-joined the Seahawks by signing to the practice squad.
"Mychal is a really good ballplayer and we thought he did great stuff for us in the past," Carroll said. "He had a huge injury and has done a marvelous job of returning. Right now this is the first day that he's practiced since he got hurt, so we're going to take it slow and make sure that Mike gets enough time to get going again, then we'll see where he fits in. He's versatile. He's going to start at his best spot at (weakside linebacker) and get in there and see how he does there, knowing that he can play the (strongside) spot—we used them all over the place when he when he was here the last couple years. So we're really excited to get him back, really thrilled that Mike will take this time to get himself in football shape. He's a well-conditioned kid and he's strong as hell, so it's none of that stuff, he just needs to get ready football wise. So I'm really happy that he's here. I really like Mike and I'm glad that he's with us."
