Uchenna Nwosu "Has A Strained Pec" & Other Seahawks Injury Updates

Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll following his team’s Week 7 win over the Cardinals.


The Seahawks beat the Cardinals 20-10 on Sunday, and they also came through the game "pretty healthy" according to Pete Carroll.

There was, however, one notable injury in the game, with outside linebacker leaving the game with a pectoral muscle injury in the second quarter, though for now the severity is not yet known.

"We got out of there pretty healthy other than Chenna. Chenna has a pec strain," Carroll said. "We don't know anything about the extent of it at this point."

Sunday's game marked the first time DK Metcalf has missed a game in his five-year career, with a hip injury suffered last week keeping him out.

"He's hurt," Carroll said. "If he could have played, he'd have played. Don't for a second think that he's looking for a way out, that's not him at all. He's sick that he couldn't play, he tried to stay with it. He's played the last couple of weeks under tremendous duress, and played well in those circumstances. This just added up too much, and he couldn't get it done. If he can get back, he'll get back."

Center Evan Brown also missed the game due to a hip injury, leading to the Seahawks using their fifth different offensive line combination in six games, though the hope is his absence will be a brief one.

"Evan should have a chance to come back next week," Carroll said. "We'll see what happens."

Carroll also gave updates on a pair of players trying to make their way back from injured reserve, right tackle Abraham Lucas and running back Kenny McIntosh, both of whom are eligible to return.

On Lucas, who has a knee injury, Carroll said, "From what I'm hearing, I can't say, 'Yeah, he's coming back this week.' I don't know that. He's got to surprise us a little bit. It's just taking time for this process to get him right, and we don't want to rush it now that we've gone this long. I don't know until we get through the week."

McIntosh, a rookie running back who injured his knee in Seattle's mock game in August, "is doing great," Carroll said. "He's right on the verge of coming back."

Veteran tackle Jason Peters, who signed to the practice squad earlier this season, is also nearing being game ready should the Seahawks need him next week.

"This should be his week," Carroll said. "He should be ready. If we've got a spot for him to play, he's ready to go. It was all but this week, but next week, he'll be ready if he makes it through the week and everything goes well. So I'm looking to see where he can fit in and contribute to us. It depends on who's available next week."
