The morning after their hideous loss to the Giants, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll made his weekly appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle and provided updates on a number of players dealing with injuries.

Among those is a player who is yet to appear in 2020 but could soon make his season debut in running back Rashaad Penny. Carroll confirmed that Penny would return to practice on Wednesday, a year and a day after suffering a knee injury in Los Angeles against the Rams. Penny’s potential return comes at a great time, with Carroll saying both Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde are fighting through pain just to get to game day.

Carroll also expressed optimism around right tackle Brandon Shell’s chances of returning from a high-ankle sprain to face his old team on Sunday. Shell’s absence has been felt with right tackle being a nightmare position since the free agent addition went down against the Cardinals.

It was similarly good news around Ryan Neal on Monday, a day after the safety was carted to the locker room with a hip injury. Carroll said Neal’s MRI “didn’t show much,” but his status for Sunday is unclear.

Finally, it sounds as though Seattle may get Greg Olsen back this season, with Carroll saying on Monday that Olsen is “really coming back fast,” from a foot injury suffered against Arizona.

Not all is lost for the Seahawks, coming off a rough loss at home and soon, they will have further help on the way.
