RENTON, WA – Seattle Seahawks quarterback Pete Carroll said Drew Lock He was so nauseous that he “barely made it out of the training ground” on Tuesday, shortly before he contracted COVID-19.
“He was dragging,” Carroll said Wednesday. “We were going to do the post-training but [decided] No, let’s get him out of here. I hit him. He’s already got it. I’ve done all the work to get ready for it. It just so happened that he got it back.”
Luke’s latest game with COVID will sideline him Thursday night for what would have been his first start to pre-season, a setback in his battle with Jeno Smith To replace Russell Wilson As a beginner in Seattle.
As of Tuesday, Smith had gotten nearly all of the Seahawks’ first-team representatives this off season and started their mock game as well as the opener this past weekend. The Seahawks gave Luke all the #1 reps on Tuesday in preparation for his Thursday night start against the Chicago Bears, which Carroll said was their plan all along.
Carroll was asked how much Locke needed the actors he would face against Chicago.
“He needed them,” Carroll said. “This week is a turbulent week for the guy to get a bunch of roles and all that. He worked with the guys yesterday setting up the game and that’s all he really got. I would have liked to see it happen all the time this little week. But we’ll see what happens next week. We’ll find out. But it was important and that’s where we’ll do extra work after training with DK [Metcalf] And by lock and [Will Dissly]And we weren’t able to do that. So we lost this opportunity.”
Locke looked so far into Tuesday’s practice that the Seattle coaches then asked him what was wrong. He then reported feeling ill and was told to see the team’s coaches.
Smith will start against Chicago before making way for a third stringer Jacob Eason.
“It came out of nowhere,” Carroll said. “Obviously he’s going to miss this match, but he has a chance to come back; he has a five-day window to take care of. It’s a pity. It’s his turn to play and start, but we’ll find out I’m out. A great day for us so he’s ready to go. He’s also going to give Jacob a chance to play a little bit more, obviously he’s going to get a good shot in the second half. Really, he deserves it and he’s trained really well for us, so I’m eager to get him out there and play some ball. foot”.
Lock and upward running backward Kenneth Walker III The Seahawks were the only ones not present at Wednesday’s training. Carroll said Walker is undergoing a “procedure” for what the coach on Tuesday called a hernia. He added that the selection of Seattle is expected to return to the second round before the first week.
Carroll clarified on Wednesday that it’s not a sports hernia, which usually takes longer to heal than a non-sports hernia.
“That’s not what he’s dealing with,” Carroll said. “It’s something a little different, and we have a chance to get it back quickly.”
Correct treatment, Carol said Jake Korhan (Back spasm) will play against Chicago, but with the position of full back Jordan Brooks (hamstrings) to the hesitant match. Carol expects the corner back Artie Burns (Thigh) The defensive end LG Cooler (elbow) To return next week.
