The Seattle Seahawks could possibly see the return of a couple of injured players in time to face the Eagles in Philadelphia for the wild-card round on Sunday.
Coach Pete Carroll provided a number of injury updates to start the workweek.
Safety Quandre Diggs, who was inactive with an ankle sprain the last two games, has resumed practice. There is no guarantee Diggs will be ready to play on Sunday, but his return to the field is a step in the right direction.
Wide receiver Malik Turner sat out last week with a concussion but could also be available against the Eagles. “He’s got some tests to do today to get cleared for tomorrow,” Carroll said. “Everything is trending towards he’s going to be back, but I say that, and he’s got a meeting here right now that he’s got to perform in and show that he’s okay.”
Left tackle Duane Brown, fresh off minor knee surgery, is more of a long shot to be ready by this weekend. “He’s working at it,” Carroll explained. “He’s trying to get back. He’s going for it. We’ll see what he can do. I don’t know anything right now. There’s nothing he’s done on the field yet.”
Carroll believes defensive end Jadeveon Clowney should be ready to roll despite not participating on Wednesday. “He’s fine,” Carroll noted. “Well, he’s practicing and going. He’s doing the best he can so he’s ready to go again.”
Seattle and Philadelphia are scheduled to kick off at 1:40 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 5 at Lincoln Financial Field.
