Seahawks’ Jadeveon Clowney misses practice, Josh Gordon limited again
It’s going to be a tough matchup for the Seattle Seahawks as they are set to face an outstanding San Francisco 49ers squad. To make matters worse, they may have to play the game without Jadeveon Clowney. However, there are also positives to be had as Josh Gordon is looking healthier despited being limited in Friday’s practice.
Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk reported that the defensive end has not participated in the team’s Friday practice. While they still have Saturday practice to finally determine the condition of Clowney’s injury, it’s becoming more and more likely that he will be an absentee. Also absent from practice was offensive tackle Duane Brown.
Clowney has been a positive influence for the Seahawks defense, and head coach Pete Carroll is loving his enthusiasm on the field.
“I love the way he’s playing, run and pass,” Carroll continued, per Seahawks Wire. “He’s really active. He’s getting ahold of the system now and he’s taking advantage of it. I think we’re just going to continue to see a lot of productivity out of him.”
However, Gordon’s imminent recovery is good news for Seahawks fans. According to Williams, the former New England Patriot is moving better than expected and should be ready to play next week. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is encouraged by what he saw.
“He’s moving around really good out there,” Schottenheimer said, via Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR and PFT. “I haven’t asked him, but I don’t notice anything about it. . . .He’s moving around good.”
The Seahawks need Gordon to perform well if they’re going to get their Super Bowl this year, and Flash is more than happy to oblige. Fans hope they’ll see their new man in action against the 49ers, though.
