Assistant head coach Tom Cable says yes, “we all are” concerned with Prosise after the dynamic, often-injured, second-year running back missed another practice Tuesday. His latest injury: a strained groin that came out of nowhere during pregame drills last Friday.
Cable says the Seahawks will start Rees Odhiambo at left tackle with fresh-off-a-plane Matt Tobin also getting time Friday night in the third preseason game, against Kansas City. He also says rookie Ethan Pocic is not a candidate to replace injured George Fant as the left tackle.
Any fears in the moments after absorbing their respective hits Monday night that Odell Beckham Jr. or Brandon Marshall may have suffered a season-ending injury apparently have been quelled. In fact, their situations may not even be preseason-ending.
