Pete Carroll provides injury update on Jarran Reed, other Seahawks


We have our first Seahawk injury report of the summer, and there are some significant names on it already.

Before we dive into the injuries, it should be noted that Chris Carson is back with the team after a quick bereavement leave. His hip appears to be all clear as he practiced on Sunday.

Now for the updates:

Jarran Reed (knee)

Reed left Friday’s practice early and did not return. Carroll said that the injury wasn’t serious and that Reed would be able to play if the Seahawks had a game. Keeping him out right now is strictly a precautionary measure.

Poona Ford (calf)

Ford was injured midway through Friday’s practice, but is in a similar position as Reed in that it’s not a serious injury. It’s worth monitoring, though, as Ford dealt with a calf strain early last season as well.

Duane Brown (rest)

Carroll said that Brown is in great shape. It’s vital to keep Brown fresh and healthy for a full 16 games in 2020. He’s not a guy who needs much in the way of training camp reps.

David Moore (ankle)

Moore has a sore ankle, but Carroll said it wasn’t serious.

Freddie Swain (groin)

Swain will miss a few days with a groin strain. Carroll was complimentary of the rookie wideout and said Swain has gotten off to a strong start in camp.

Darrell Taylor (shin)

The most ominous injury news is still regarding Taylor. The rookie pass rusher isn’t running yet, and it seems to be a longshot that he’ll be able to be ready for Week 1. Benson Mayowa will be Seattle’s unrivaled No. 1 LEO with Alton Robinson potentially mixing into the rotation.
