Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll gave an update on receiver Tyler Lockett on Tuesday, noting that the star player who spent the night in a Bay Area hospital with a contusion — Carroll did use the words “compartmental syndrome” to describe the issue, as many had speculated — should be good to go after the bye week.
Lockett will spend another night at the Stanford hospital.
"Our people think he's going to be fine to play next week" - Pete Carroll on Tyler Lockett— Field Gulls (@FieldGulls) November 12, 2019
Lockett has caught 62 of 76 targets for 793 yards and six touchdowns. He’s looking to post new career-highs as the new number one receiver for the Seahawks, and his 18 targets two games ago against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with 13 catches, were also career-highs. He had just four targets on Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers despite playing in over 70% of the snaps.
Seattle ended up having just enough though as Jacob Hollister took on 10 targets and DK Metcalf took over for the receiver group. It appears as though they will have all available when the Seahawks play the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12. That game, by the way, has been flexed out of Sunday night and into Sunday morning at 10 AM ET.
