A positive sight for the Seahawks on Friday was the presence of veteran running back Leon Washington in significant team drills for the first time.
Washington got about 12 snaps out of the backfield as he continues coming back from a compound fracture in his leg suffered in Week 7 last season for the Jets.
Carroll said the speedster is ahead of schedule.
"Now he'll start to enter the competition at the running back spot in a meaningful way," Carroll said. "We've been patient with him up until now. I've been waiting for him. We know he's healthy and he's back. He needed to feel right about it so we've given him time until he made the call."
