Chris Carson (groin/hip) appears to be a game-time decision for Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. Said Pete Carroll: “We’ll see.”
Carroll said K.J. Wright “should be ready to go” against the Chargers after taking it easy the week after his first game. Bradley McDougald, who has battled a knee issue for weeks, also is listed as questionable. Carroll said he is “ready to go. We just wanted to rest him all the way through the week. … We just wanted to make sure to maximize the rest.”
Chargers running back Melvin Gordon, who missed the game before L.A.’s bye with a hamstring injury, appears to be a game-time decision.
The Seahawks are wary of facing brilliant Chargers QB Philip Rivers, who burned them in 2014 and is playing maybe the best ball of his career at age 36.
Carroll on the Chargers’ talented trio of receivers: “They play big, and they play down the field. (Rivers) uses the heck out of them, so the ball’s all over the place.”
D.J. Fluker, playing with a renewed love for the game, faces the team that drafted him in the first round but didn’t want to re-sign him. The Seahawks definitely want to re-sign him.
