The Seahawks host the Vikings in their second preseason game Friday night, and as expected, a handful of players are not expected to suit up for the game because of various injuries.
Receiver Tyler Lockett, whose 2016 season ended with a broken leg, is back to practicing, but he will not play, nor will receiver Paul Richardson, who injured his shoulder last week against the Los Angeles Chargers, but did surprise Seahawks coach Pete Carroll by returning to practice this week.
As Carroll had said would be the case a day earlier, both Lockett and Richardson did go through pregame warmups.
Tight end Luke Willson, who has been battling a groin injury, also ran prior to the game, but is not expected to play.
Carroll said the hope is that Willson can return to practice next week.
Running back Thomas Rawls is also out due to what Carroll described as a minor ankle sprain.
K.J.Wright, who was away this week for what Carroll described as a “process” on his knee, won’t play, but is expected back at practice next week and Carroll said the linebacker likely will be able to play in next week’s preseason game.
