Two starters for Seattle made it back to the practice field today, according to Carroll...

Based on exactly what Carroll had to say, it seems like things are looking good for both Lewis and Reed to play this weekend against the Titans.

On Lewis: "He just had a little something that we had to just check out. He practiced today ... He looked good. He had a good today."
On Reed: "... he practiced today, so we’re in pretty good shape there."
In other news from the injury report, two Seahawks are listed as doubtful, with Bryan Mone joining Lewis and Reed in the questionable category. Penny Hart has cleared concussion protocol and was not on the report.

Says it is part of caring, and of the real lives players live during seasons just as you and I do. #Seahawks @thenewstribune pic.twitter.com/bXJzEpHG7x
Ending the article on a more positive note, Darrell Taylor got a chance to share his excitement to play his first game at Lumen Field, with or without fans. Hopefully he can add to the one sack he picked up last week against the Colts. Based on the performance of the Titans’ line last week, he should have a good shot to do so.

“Oh, man! I can’t freakin’ wait! I hope they pack it out. And it’s the first home game? WHOOO!
