Pete Carroll gave an injury update at his Tuesday presser this afternoon, noting that the Seahawks will be getting a few guys back this week.

Tight ends Tony Moeaki (shoulder) and Cooper Helfet (ribs) will return to practice today with the goal of playing this weekend vs. the Rams. Carroll said that left tackle Russell Okung (lung) will return to practice today as well, meaning the offensive line will be getting some relief.

Carroll also mentioned that despite a shoulder separation for Tharold Simon (he didn't specify that was the injury, but that's the assumption), the cornerback is feeling pretty good today and will have a shot at playing this weekend as well. He will practice tomorrow.

Max Unger is still iffy. Seattle's starting center has been fighting a high ankle sprain and as Carroll noted, the recovery time for that injury is pretty variable from person to person. Unger practiced a little last week but did not recover well from it, so his status for this week is still up in the air.

Jermaine Kearse suffered a "first-degree" hamstring pull that Carroll said will keep him out this weekend.
