The Seahawks have seemingly avoided a scare, two days after Carlos Dunlap left their win over the Eagles with a foot injury.
On Wednesday, Pete Carroll provided an update on Dunlap’s foot after the defensive end had an MRI on Tuesday. According to Carroll, Dunlap’s injury is “nothing serious,” and both player and team hope he will be able to play on Sunday. However, it’s too early in the week to know.

Even if Dunlap was to miss Seattle’s meeting against the Giants, the update comes as a relief with Dunlap already having established himself as a crucial piece of the defense.
Staying with the defense, Carroll also said Quinton Dunbar will have a chance at returning in Week 14, while Tre Flowers has a hamstring injury following the win in Philadelphia.
On the defensive line, it sounds as though an update on Darrell Taylor’s status should come this week.
Carroll says they will get word by the end of the week on Darrell Taylor and if/when he can come back. Says Rashaad Penny remains "close'' but no set word yet on when he will return to practice.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) December 2, 2020
Though the Seahawks are not yet back to full health, it comes as great relief that Dunlap has avoided a serious injury.
