Seahawks Friday injury news: Bryan Walters out against Carolina, six more also declared out

The Seahawks have declared seven players as out for Sunday’s game at Carolina, including punt and kickoff returner Bryan Walters, who suffered a concussion.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Doug Baldwin and Paul Richardson will handle the returns in Walters’ absence, Baldwin likely doing kickoffs and Richardson punts, though Carroll  left that a little vague.

Also out for the game are TE Zach Miller, C Max Unger, MLB Bobby Wagner, CB Byron Maxwell, fullback Derrick Coleman and DT Jordan Hill.

Everyone else is good to go, including DL Michael Bennett who missed practice on Thursday with a toe injury.

Carroll said Unger and Maxwell could be back next week, indicating that each has a chance to return to practice by Wednesday.

Carroll said Coleman had surgery on Wednesday and is out likely six weeks. But he said the team has not decided whether to make a roster move with Coleman. Robert Turbin will  handle fullback duties in Carolina as he did last week when Coleman suffered a broken bone in his foot prior to the St. Louis game.

Also back this week are Tharold Simon and Luke Willson. Each will start, Simon at cornerback in place of Maxwell and Willson at tight end in place of Miller.

Carroll also said middle linebacker Bobby Wagner will see a foot specialist this weekend — he has been out since the Dallas game with a toe injury and is in a cast.

“He will see a doctor this weekend and we’ll know a lot more,” Carroll said. “We don’t know much about what it is right now. But it’s going to be a while. He’s in a cast so we’ll know more after this weekend.”

Carroll also said DBs Jeremy Lane and Eric Pinkins practiced full-go this week. Lane can come back for the Nov. 9 Giants game while the team will have to decide after next week whether to place him on the active roster or revert to IR

Here is an update on Carolina’s injuries from ESPN.
