For the third consecutive week, the most important measurement for the Seahawks will come down to one foot.
Mike Williams’ foot to be more precise.
He now has a sprained right ankle to go along with that strained right foot, and while he’s not in a plastic walking boot, he’s not expected to practice Wednesday or Thursday.
“They’re going to try him out and do some things with him through the process and see if they can get him going,” coach Pete Carroll said. “We’re going to give him a couple days here.”
Same goes for receiver Ben Obomanu, who suffered a lacerated right hand in the game.
“We’re going to give him a couple of days before we do anything with him, let everything quiet down, but holding out hope that those guys still have a chance to play.”
Guard Chester Pitts isn’t going to practice on Wednesday, and isn’t expected to play.
“I think he’s still another week away,” Carroll said.
And even if Pitts were ready to practice, Carroll didn’t sound like he was ready to disrupt the offensive-line configuration by replacing Mike Gibson at left guard.
“Mike’s doing well,” Carroll said. “I don’t think we would do anything right now. We would certainly wait and see and see how Chester comes back, but with the effort towards continuity, why we would go do it again, change it again. I think Mike’s earning his way, and Chester’s got to make it back out there and look good and prepared and really ready to contribute. Then we’ll just wait and see and let the competition play itself out.”
