A look at Seahawks injuries heading into Week 7

The Seattle Seahawks came away from their Week-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals relatively unscathed, but the team is still dealing with a number of injuries. Coach Pete Carroll provided some updates during his Wednesday press conference.

Defensive tackle Al Woods, who injured his knee in Week 5, practiced on Wednesday. “Yeah, he feels good,” Carroll told reporters.

Guard Gabe Jackson (hip): “We don’t know anything today,” Carroll said. “We’ll just go day-to-day.”

Linebacker Alton Robinson (knee): “I don’t have a good one for Alton right now,” Carroll said. “He’s still kind of in the middle of it.”

Cornerback Tre Brown (knee): “He is really starting to go,” Carroll explained. “He’s really close and he’s running really fast, he’s changing direction. It’s just, can he endure it and keep coming back? He’s not very far away now. I would say we are a couple of weeks away maybe and he should really be fighting to get back out there. I’m really excited to see him. I love when he was playing for us. He did a really good job. To add him to the competition would be great.”

Running back Travis Homer (rib): “Travis is really making progress,” Carroll said. “He’s a week away now. He’ll be eligible to come back next week. We’ll see if he can do that. He’s worked really hard and he’s really chomping at the bit to come back.”

Linebacker Darryl Johnson (foot): “Bam is a little less known right now,” Carroll admitted. “He hasn’t been able to do as much, so he’s not as close right now.”

Wide receiver Penny Hart (hamstring): “I talked to Penny specifically today,” Carroll confirmed. “There was a chance that we could’ve IR’d him a week ago and just knowing his nature and how he bounces back and all that, I would’ve sat him down for four weeks. I just told him, ‘We thought about it, but we’re kind of counting on you to make it back before then.’ So, we’ll see. It’s still a four-week injury, but some guys can get through those time frames.”

Defensive end L.J. Collier (elbow, thumb): “He’s going to practice,” Carroll said. “He’s really close, now. We need to see how well he can deal with it. He just kind of barely made it through practice last week, really couldn’t put his hand in there, because his thumb was really hurting.”
