Remember when Pete Carroll said a few hours ago that Alex Collins would practice after coming out of the Pittsburgh Steelers game all banged up?
Pete Carroll says the players who were injured Sunday night -- Darrell Taylor, Alex Collins, Damien Lewis, Sidney Jones -- will practice today. Said Taylor won't do a lot today but has nothing more than a stiff neck. "He really feels like he's playing," Carroll said of Taylor.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) October 21, 2021
Well it didn’t happen. The first practice report for the Seattle Seahawks’ Monday Night Football matchup with the New Orleans Saints lists Collins and Damien Lewis as DNPs, whereas Sidney Jones and (miraculously) Darrell Taylor were limited participants.
Seahawks injury report: Turns out Alex Collins and Damien Lewis didn’t practice. Darrell Taylor was a limited participant, tho, which feels miraculous. Sidney Jones was limited too but has cleared concussion protocol. pic.twitter.com/zdb2slKw7U— Dugar, Michael-Shawn (@MikeDugar) October 21, 2021
Collins is listed as having a groin injury, so a Thursday DNP may be worth monitoring given how shaky Seattle’s running back situation is. Rashaad Penny is expected to come off of injured reserve and play on Monday, marking his first appearance since getting injured on opening day versus the Indianapolis Colts.
Limited participation in practice for both Brandon Shell and Cedric Ogbuehi is also worth monitoring, as those are the 1-2 on the depth chart at right tackle. Ogbuehi was inactive last Sunday whereas Shell did have an ankle injury against the Steelers.
