On the Seattle Seahawks' second offensive play last week, Russell Wilson decided to take a shot deep to wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who was matched up with New England Patriots cornerback Justin Coleman.
"It was just being able to try to get an outside or inside release, just be aggressive and give him something," Lockett said. "He jumped outside, so I slipped him inside and tried to get vertical and stack him, and Russell put a great ball on [me]. The safety was coming, he got his hand in there, but I was able to secure it and get the first down."
It was Lockett's first explosive play since Week 2, when he suffered a knee injury in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
The injury clearly has slowed Lockett down, but he showed signs in last week's game to suggest he's making significant improvement, the story said. It also quoted HC Pete Carroll as saying Lockett is finally back and running fast and confident and able to practice at a high level. This week's matchup is a nice one against an Eagles secondary that is a bit banged up.
