Wednesday Practice Report: Seahawks Receiver Tyler Lockett Limited, But "Really On The Upswing"

News and notes from Wednesday’s practice report ahead of the Seahawks’ Week 12 game in Philadelphia.

Tyler Lockett was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to the shin injury he sustained in Seattle's Week 10 win over the 49ers, and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll remains optimistic that his team's top receiver will be ready for Sunday's game at Philadelphia.

"Tyler's really on the upswing now," Carroll said prior to Wednesday's practice. "There were a couple tough days before he got out of California. He's feeling way better and expects to do some work. He's going to catch some balls after practice with Russ (Wilson) and start getting ready to go."

Asked if he thinks Lockett will play Sunday, Carroll said, "I do. He thinks that too."

Sitting out Wednesday was tight end Luke Willson, who left Seattle's last game with a hamstring injury. Carroll said Monday that Willson was unlikely to make it back this week, but had a more optimistic tone Wednesday when talking about a player who has been known for making quick injury recoveries throughout his career. Carroll even joked that he is bringing back the "probable" game-status designation that the league did away with in recent years.

"Luke has been such an extraordinary healer over the years," Carroll said. "I know there's no category for it, but we're going to call him probable. Even though it doesn't exist, you never know."

Also sitting out were defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (knee/hip) and left tackle Duane Brown (knee/biceps), though it's worth noting that both players sat out the first two days of practice ahead of Seattle's Week 10 game and still played their normal amount against the 49ers.

A total of 11 players were listed as limited, though five of those were for rest, not injuries, and three more were full participants: safety Lano Hill (elbow), quarterback Russell Wilson (hamstring) and receiver Josh Gordon (ankle). 

For the Eagles, starting right tackle Lane Johnson remains in the concussion protocol, meaning rookie Andre Dillard, a Woodinville High School and WSU product, could be in line to start in his place.
