Quandre Diggs’ injury worse than Seahawks thought...


The Seattle Seahawks are going to have to wait at least another game to see the debut of defensive back Quandre Diggs, who is a long shot to play in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers while battling a hamstring injury.

“He’s still rehabbing. He’s not ready this week unless something crazy happens,” coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Friday. “We’ll hold out hope and he’ll be doubtful going in. If something happens where we need him in an emergency situation, ‘God willing and the creek don’t rise’ kind of thing. We’ll see.”

Diggs was inactive against the Falcons on Sunday for what would have been his first game with Seattle. It appears the hamstring injury is worse than the team realized when they made the trade with the Lions.

“Yes, it was, because he played in the game that week,” Carroll explained. “You could tell, knowing how he plays, you could tell that he was taking care of himself a little bit. We just figured, let’s get him back and not just kind of limp his way through the first couple weeks with us. Once he’s back, he’s back. We can really let him show where he fits in.”

Carroll said Seattle has a good understanding of the injury after Diggs underwent a thorough examination and procedure to address the issue.

“We do know a lot,” Carroll said. “We have really good pictures on it. We know what he needed to do. He had some blood drained from his hammy to give him more relief, which was a really good deal. He should be able to bounce back.”

Diggs will likely not suit up in a Seahawks uniform until Week 10, when Seattle visits San Francisco in prime time — a game in which the Seahawks will need all the help they can get.
