“He just looked too good on the practice field today,” Carroll said. “… We do have to see how he is after today. That’s an unknown right now. As much as I’d like to be optimistic about it, which I am, we do have to see what, if anything, happened coming off the work that he had.”
Lockett had the second-most prolific receiving game in franchise history when Seattle and Arizona played in Week 7. With Patrick Peterson neutralizing DK Metcalf, Lockett caught 15 passes on 20 targets for 200 yards and three touchdowns.
He was limited in Wednesday’s practice.
“He looked too good today,” Carroll said. “He was light on his feet, moving around and bopping pretty good. We had to hold him back today. He wanted to practice the whole thing. We held him out a little bit.”
Strong safety Jamal Adams was a full participant in all three practices this week and is expected to play despite injuring a shoulder last week.
The absences of Carson and Hyde the past three weeks have forced the Seahawks to turn to rookie DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer and veteran Alex Collins. Seattle has averaged 4.04 yards per carry in that stretch (20th) after averaging 5.25 yards per carry over the first seven weeks (second). Collins, who’s on Seattle’s practice squad, played in Week 9 for the first time since 2018.
Homer (wrist/knee/thumb) is listed as doubtful for Thursday night. Bo Scarbrough is also on Seattle’s practice squad if needed for game-day depth.
The Seahawks have injury issues at cornerback and center.
They ruled out starting corners Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) and Quinton Dunbar (knee) and placed backup Neiko Thorpe (core) back on injured reserve. Tre Flowers and D.J. Reed Jr. started last week.
Starting center Ethan Pocic is also out. His backup, Kyle Fuller, is listed as questionable because of a high ankle sprain he played through last week, but Carroll expects him to be available if needed. Jamarco Jones is Seattle’s No. 3 center. Guard Phil Haynes, just activated off injured reserve, can also play center.
Carroll said Pocic is doing “way better” after missing last week with a concussion.
“It’s just the short week didn’t give him a chance,” Carroll said. “Kyle, he’s going to be ready to go in the game. We’ll see how good he is on game day. But he went through all of the prep on the sides. We rested him all week on a short week and he did a real nice job first time out and so he will be ready if we need him.”
The Seahawks also ruled out left guard Jordan Simmons (calf). He has filled in for Mike Iupati, who is not listed with any game designation on Seattle’s injury report.
