Seattle Seahawks defensive end Darrell Taylor wasn’t able to practice with his teammates when they all took the field together for the first time on Wednesday. Taylor was placed on the non-football injury list on Aug. 3.

Taylor, who suffered a leg injury his senior year at Tennessee, underwent surgery this offseason and is still in recovery. Thankfully, there is no damage to his knee.

“He wasn’t ready to go,” coach Pete Carroll told reporters after practice. “There’s no damage to his knee, he’s just got to get back from the work he has been doing. I’m not sure how long it’s going to take. He has done some treatments and things that take a week or so to take hold and all of that, he got good response from that so far.”

With all preseason games canceled this summer, Taylor can take some extra time to ease back into practice. Carroll believes he could be participating near the end of the month.

“I’m hoping that in another couple of weeks we’ll know he’s ready to get back in it and go,” Carroll explained. “They’re working with him right now – he’s dying to get back and all – but it’s just not quite right. So we’ve just got to take our time and make sure that once he gets back, he’s back for good.”

The Seahawks practice Thursday and Friday before breaking on Saturday.
