It sounds like Jadeveon Clowney (core) and Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) are in good shape following Monday night’s win against the Minnesota Vikings.
Clowney has been dealing with a core muscle injury that is sports hernia-related. He registered three tackles, one quarterback hit and a forced fumble in his return to action after missing one game.
Following the win, Clowney said you’d have to “ask him (on Tuesday)” as to how he was feeling. Pete Carroll indicated on Wednesday that the Seahawks star pass rusher came out OK following the primetime win.
“(He’s) pretty good,” Carroll said. “He’s practicing today, and that’s a really good sign.”
Ansah suffered a shoulder stinger on Seattle’s final defensive possession. Carroll sounded less enthused about Ansah, but still positive overall.
“He looks like he’s doing OK so far,” Carroll said. “We won’t know for a couple of days if he’s cleared and all that.”
Carroll sidestepped a question about whether or not Ansah’s stinger was related to his offseason shoulder surgery.
“I can’t tell you that,” the coach said. “I don’t know that answer.”
Seattle’s pass rush has come alive over the Seahawks last three games. The defense posted eight combined sacks against the 49ers and Eagles before hitting Kirk Cousins seven times on Monday night. Ansah, in particular, has been tremendous of late with five quarterback hits over his last two games.
Both Clowney and Ansah practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday and should be in the lineup on Sunday night against the Rams.
