Carroll says Seahawks are ‘cranked up’ and healthy
RENTON, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks are rested, healed and ready to get back on the field against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, coach Pete Carroll said at a press conference Monday at the VMAC.
The 3-1 Seahawks are coming in fresh after a much-needed bye week, with several injured starters feeling much better – including, of course, quarterback Russell Wilson.
“He looked fine today,” Carroll said. “He looked normal.”
Seattle will play host to the 4-1 Atlanta Falcons on Sunday at 1:25 p.m. in a game televised on the home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX.
Wilson, suffered ankle and knee sprains in the first and third weeks of the season, respectively.
“He still knows it there and he’s treating it, but he feels really good on it,” Carroll said.
Also on the mend is rookie defensive tackle Jarran Reed, who is recovering from a hip injury. Carroll said Reed ran on Monday and will practice Wednesday, with the hope that he can play Sunday.
Carroll also said receiver Tyler Lockett (knee) is able to practice, and that rookie running back C.J. Prosise (wrist) was undergoing some testing Monday but could return soon.
“The guys came back charged up like you’d think they would,” Carroll said. “We’re ready to go.”
