Chris Carson, K.J. Wright, Bradley McDougald all questionable

Seattle Seahawks v Detroit Lions

RENTON --  Running back Chris Carson, linebacker K.J. Wright and strong safety Bradley McDougald are all listed as questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Carson's availability seems to be the most in question as he will be a game-time decision. Head coach Pete Carroll said he felt Wright and McDougald will both be able to play.

Carson was listed on the injury report with a hip issue but Carroll referred to it as "a little groin thing." Carson appeared on the report for the same reason ahead of the team's game in Arizona earlier this year. He was listed as questionable for that game as well but did not play as he was made inactive against the Cardinals.

"He got through the day, he practiced every day this week," Carroll said of Carson. "We just got to make sure on game day he's OK. If not, we'll go with the other guys and move forward. We'll see."

Carson wasn't listed on the report for Wednesday before being added as a limited participant on Thursday. He was listed as limited again on Friday.

Carson has rushed for 457 yards and two touchdowns in six games this season for Seattle. He's also caught 10 passes for 80 yards.

Wright did not practice on either Wednesday or Thursday before getting some limited work in on Friday.

“He got through today fine,’’ Carroll said. “We rested him two days really not knowing how he could got. Yesterday we decided to just make sure to give him another day of recovery and he did fine today."

Wright had missed the first six games of the season due to a knee injury that required surgery in late August. He had five tackles and a pass defended in his first game back last Sunday in Detroit.

McDougald did not practice on Wednesday or Friday due to a knee injury. He was also limited in Thursday's practice, but Carroll said he expects McDougald to play against the Chargers.

“He’s ready to go. We just waned to rest him all the way through the week, so he’s had a good week, been working off the field. But he’s scheduled to play," Carroll said.

Cornerback Neiko Thorpe (groin) and guard Jordan Simmons (calf) are listed as doubtful and will both likely be inactive for the second straight week because of injuries. The rest of the roster is ready to go, which included second-round pick Rasheem Green, who has missed the last four games due to an ankle sprain.

"We’ll see how it works out but I expect him to play. We’ve just got to make some decisions on other guys," Carroll said.

Wide receiver Malik Turner is expected to play on special teams and in the team's receiver rotation after being elevated from the practice squad earlier this week.

“He’ll be in the rotations, ready to help wherever we need him,’’ Carroll said.

Turner took Brandon Marshall's spot on the active roster following his release on Tuesday. He will be needed on special teams due to the expected absence of Thorpe again this weekend.

Carroll said Turner made an impression on them in offseason practices. He's been on the practice squad for several weeks as well.

“He was really steady throughout," he said. “We liked him on special teams and that was a big part of the consideration right here that he can jump in at a couple places. We think he’s ahead in that regard. We’ll find out how he does. But he really did everything well. He blocks well, he catches well, he runs good routes, he’s tough. … so we feel really confident he can do a good job."
