Tyler Lockett & Jamal Adams Expected To Play vs. Browns & Other Seahawks Injury Updates

Seahawks injury updates from Pete Carroll ahead of his team’s Week 8 game against the Browns.


The Seahawks will have nearly every player on their 53-man roster available for Sunday's game against the Browns, with guard Phil Haynes, who is listed as doubtful, the only player expected to miss the game due to injury.

Receiver Tyler Lockett (hamstring) and safety Jamal Adams (knee) were both listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, but both practiced fully on Friday and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he expects them to be ready to go Sunday.

Carroll said Lockett, "was fine today. He's fine." And when asked about Adams, he said, "He made it through today. Both those guys practiced today."

Carroll then answered in the affirmative when asked if he expects those two to play.

Three players who missed last week's game due to injury did not have a game status on the injury report, meaning they are ready to go: receiver DK Metcalf, center Evan Brown and running back Zach Charbonnet.

Metcalf is returning from a hip injury that caused him to miss a game for the first time in his five-year career, and Carroll said the week off was beneficial.

"It did (help him)," Carroll said. "He needed it."

On Brown, who missed last week's game with a hip injury, Carroll said, "He really did bounce back. I was real happy about that. I kind of slowed him down a little bit on Wednesday just to make sure he was going to get back. He had a terrific week. He's ready to play."

Carroll also confirmed that Frank Clark is ready to play after signing with the team on Thursday.

"It's hard to imagine that a guy could just move right on back in like that, but he did,' Carroll said. "He had a couple assignments and stuff that he has to get right, which is only normal, but he fit right in. The tempo of the way we practice, and expectations of how we run and hustle and all that, shoot, he just was right in it. You could tell Frank is really happy to be back, his mind is in a great place, and he's looking forward to helping us. There's no hesitation to put him in. He's going to play this weekend."

As for Haynes, Carroll said the hope is that giving one more week off to rest his calf injury should allow him to get back next week. Rookie Anthony Bradford, who started in place of Haynes last week, is likely to fill in once again at right guard.

"We took an extra week," Carroll said. "Because it kind of nagged with him, we took an extra week to get him back. Next week he should be ready to go."

The Seahawks could also have receiver Dee Eskridge back this weekend after he returned to practice this week following a six-game suspension. The Seahawks will still need to make a roster move by Saturday to add Eskridge to the 53-man roster.

"He's come back to us in great shape," Carroll said. "He worked really hard to ensure that with the trainers leading up to this time. He looked like he was in top-flight form. He was really fast and really quick. So we've got a chance that he could play in this game."

Two players who returned to practice this week, running back Kenny McIntosh and nose tackle Austin Faoliu, have been ruled out for the game, meaning they will not yet be activated off injured reserve and the physically unable to perform list, respectively.

Asked about McIntosh, Carroll said the rookie, "did everything. He didn't have as many reps as a starter would have, but he had reps in every period, and he was very quick and explosive, and he seemed to feel comfortable with all the calls and things. He's been studying, he's been staying with us. He looked pretty flashy out there to tell you the truth."

The Seahawks and Browns face off on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2023. Kickoff is set for 1:05 p.m. PT. Take a look back through history at the Seahawks' matchups against the Browns.
