A “Really Positive” Update On Damien Lewis & Other Seahawks Injury News – Seahawks.com

Seahawks.com Senior Reporter
The Seahawks were back on the practice field for the first time Sunday, and while guard Damien Lewis, who left Thursday’s game with an ankle injury, wasn’t a part of the action, the news continues to be positive following what, in the moment, looked to be a potentially serious injury.
Lewis, who was injured when another player fell into his leg, was carted off the field with an air cast on his leg—often the sign of a significant injury—but after the game Pete Carroll noted that X-rays were negative and that Lewis had a sprained ankle.

On Sunday, Carroll gave more positive news, namely that the injury is not the more serious high ankle sprain.
“It’s kind of a basketball ankle sprain, so that’s a really positive thing,” Carroll said. “It’s the swelling that he’s going to deal with—there’s no torn ligaments or any of that stuff. It doesn’t mean he’s immediately popping back, but it’s not going to be a long time. It’s not like a high ankle sprain that lingers forever.”
Running back Kenneth Walker III was also a non-participant as he continues to recover from the procedure he had last week.
“He’s still pretty tender,” Carroll said. “He’s got some things to heal. It’s just a matter of time. We don’t have a designated return sequence yet, we’ve got to see how he responds.”
Fellow 2022 second-round pick Boye Mafe was at practice but not taking part in the action, the result of a shoulder injury he sustained in Thursday night’s game.
“He’s got a shoulder strain,” Carroll said. “We’ve got to see what happens with him this week. I don’t think he’ll make it back this week, but he’s not damaged and he’ll be ok.
