Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says center Max Unger “looks to be okay”

Here are a few quick personnel/injury updates from Seattle coach Pete Carroll’s regular Monday radio show on ESPN 710 Seattle:

  • Carroll said C Max Unger “looks to be okay” after leaving the game in the final minutes with an ankle injury. Carroll said Unger initially worried that it was the same injury that had just held him out of the last six regular season games but it appears to be a different one and not as severe. Carroll said Unger felt better on Sunday.
  • Carroll said it’s still uncertain the status of CB Byron Maxwell for Sunday’s game against the Packers while dealing with an illness that caused him to have shortness of breath on Saturday. Carroll said Maxwell could play for a play but couldn’t play a sequence of plays due to not being able to catch his breath. So that’s why he was on some special teams plays — officially, he played four. Carroll said Maxwell has had pneumonia before, indicating this was something similar. “Hopefully we’ll get him back this week,” Carroll said.
  • Carroll said TB Marshawn Lynch “got sick in the second half” which was why he was out for a little while. He said there was no plan to rest Lynch or anything like that but that he got 14 carries was “just the way the game worked out.’
  • Carroll called the ACL injury to WR Paul Richardson “a heartbreaker” noting that he had had “such a great rookie season for us.” He said Richardson “is going to have a long haul to get right now. He’s been through it before, so that always helps. But still, it’s a heartbreaker.”
  • Carroll said of Ricardo Lockette’s penalty that Lockette just flipped the ball at the defender but that the official told him “he hit him in the face so I’ve got to call it.”

Carroll will meet the media at large today at noon at the VMAC so we’ll have more from him then.
