Injury updates from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll ahead of Sunday’s game against the Falcons.John Boyle
Quandre Diggs is listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, but following a practice in which Diggs was a full participant, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the Pro-Bowl safety is ready to go for Seattle's Week 3 game against the Falcons.
"He practiced today, he got through today," Carroll said. "He looked good. He looks good to play."
Carroll said the injury is just a sore knee coming out of last week's game, and was "nothing that needed any attention other than just a little bit of rest."
Sticking with Seattle's secondary, nickel corner Justin Coleman is listed as doubtful after not practicing all week due to a calf injury that also kept him out of last week's game.
"He's really getting close, but he's still doubtful right now," Carroll said. "It would be hard for him to play this week."
Presuming Coleman does indeed miss a second straight game, that would mean another week in the nickel role for rookie cornerback Coby Bryant.
The Seahawks should be at full strength on the offensive line despite some injury concerns during the week. Guard Damien Lewis, who left last week's game with a thigh injury, practiced the past two days and does not have an injury designation, meaning he should be fine to play. Center Austin Blythe is also free of an injury designation having returned to practice Friday after missing Thursday with a sore shoulder.
On Lewis, Carroll said, "He was uncomfortable coming out of the weekend and we weren't sure, but he bounced right back. Yesterday he got some work and today he did all the stuff, and I don't think it bothered him at all, I think he's ready to go."
Carroll said Blythe's "shoulder just got sore" during the week, hence Thursday's day off, but "he made it through today, and it looks like he's ready to go."
The Seahawks will be without defensive end Shelby Harris, who left last week's game with a glute injury, and who has also been away from the team this week tending to a family matter.
"He's got an injury, but he also has a family thing he's got to attend to, so he won't make it back," Carroll said.

Carroll noted that Harris "played good football," in his Seahawks debut against Denver before leaving last week's game early with the injury. With Harris out, Carroll said defensive tackle and preseason standout Myles Adams "will definitely play" after being a healthy scratch the previous two weeks.
"I'm really anxious to see him, because he was really active (in the preseason)," Carroll said. "He played the run well and was in the backfield, and he just was flashy. He brings us a little different style of play, his quickness will be a nice addition here, and I'm hoping it will show up and be a factor for us."
