The Seattle Seahawks return home Week 3 to face the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field. Coach Pete Carroll provided some updates Wednesday on the health of the team ahead of Sunday’s matchup.
Guard D.J. Fluker (ankle): “He went through the walkthrough and he’s going try to get some work today,” Carroll told reporters. “He gave me the thumbs up like he’s ready to go. We’ll have to wait and see how the week goes.”
Guard Ethan Pocic (neck): Carroll said Pocic will be sitting out practice this week due to a stiff neck but is expected to play this weekend.
Wide receiver David Moore (shoulder): Moore could return to action as soon as this week. “There’s a really good chance – he’s going to go day to day here,” Carroll said. “But he’s practicing to play so that’s a real boost for us.”
Safety Tedric Thompson (hamstring): “It’s still touch and go to make it back for this week, but he’s working really hard,” Carroll noted. “He’s really determined. If not this week, it will be next week. He’s right around the corner – we’ll see what happens by the end of the week.”
Cornerback Neiko Thorpe (hamstring): Carroll said similar to Thompson, he’s not sure if Thorpe can make it back this week in time to face the Saints.
Defensive tackle Poona Ford (calf): Ford will practice this week in a limited fashion and is determined to play Sunday.
