- The Athletic’s Matt Barrows says the 49ers are most likely to activate DL Kentavius Street from injured reserve given their injuries along the defensive line.
- Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Rams HC Sean McVay says WR Brandin Cooks will return from his concussion for Monday night’s game against the Ravens.
Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett had more than a typical bruise in his knee after last week’s Monday night game against the 49ers. The injury swelled up so much that Lockett had to spend two days in the hospital while doctors monitored his leg to make sure nothing more serious was happening.
“They wanted to take an extra day to just ensure that he was fine and all that. He really is on the road to recovery now. He’s past that. That was just the initial concern,” Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said via Tim Booth of the Associated Press. “We were very fortunate that he was at a great place and they took great care of him and all that, and everything worked out fine. Now he’s on the road back and we’re optimistic about it but he’s still going to have to do it. The extra days are absolutely helping us.”
Despite the initial scare, the Seahawks actually expect Lockett to be able to suit up and play this week against the Eagles after taking the bye to rest and recover.
“He’s doing better. We’ll know later in the week his status. We’re hoping, planning on him being able to play, but he has to show us, so we’ll see,” Carroll said.
Carroll said he was disappointed to miss free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick‘s workout on Saturday. Seattle sent a scout to the initial location but when Kaepernick’s camp changed it up, the logistics prevented Seattle’s scout from attending.
“Disappointed,” Carroll said via Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR and PFT. “We had planned to be at that workout. It got changed around, and we couldn’t hang with it. Unfortunately, we sent somebody, but we couldn’t stay with the changes that happened. We missed it. We were real curious. I was real curious to see how the workout went. Just competing as always, you know.”
