I’m at the airport ready to head out to New York and did not attend practice this morning. But I do have the injury report, and receiver Mike Williams has been ruled out because of a concussion.
“Mike’s not going to make it,” Carroll said. “He’s not going to make this week.”
Williams did not practice all week, which means he did not pass the concussion test in order to get back on the field. With Williams out, Ben Obomanu will get his third start of the season, and Kris Durham has a shot to be Seattle’s fifth receiver.
Robert Gallery (groin) also is out.
Along with Williams, linebacker Malcolm Smith (hamstring), Durham (hamstring) and Marcus Trufant (back) did not practice.
Smith is listed as doubtful, while Trufant and Durham are listed as questionable.
Carroll said that Trufant has been experiencing back spasms but is expected to play on Sunday.
“It happened in the game and it didn’t really tighten up until Wednesday at practice,” Carroll said about Trufant’s injury. “So we’ll see how he’s doing. He looks like he’ll be okay.”
Cornerback Byron Maxwell (ankle) and safety Kam Chancellor (quad) were limited participants in practice, but Carroll said Chancellor is ready play in New York. Maxwell is listed as doubtful, while Chancellor is listed as questionable.
Defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove (hamstring) and tight end Zach Miller (knee) were full participants in practice.
For New York, cornerback Prince Amukarmara (foot) and center David Baas (neck) did not practice and are out.
Running back Brandon Jacobs (knee) and defensive end Justin Tuck (groin/neck) did not practice and are doubtful.
And defensive tackle Rocky Bernard (ribs), defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee) and linebacker Michael Boley (knee) were limited participants and are probable.
