Carroll: Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett has looked 'fast' and 'very confident'

Via Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he’s encouraged by the Tyler Lockett's return from last December’s broken leg, and may hold him out of the last two preseason games just to be on the safe side.

“He has competed in practice throughout this week,” Carroll said. “He has looked very confident. He has looked fast. I am still watching him, though. I still want to make sure we are taking all the time we have available.

“There is no reason to rush him. He is a fantastic competitor. He knows what we are doing. He is well-schooled on everything we are asking him to do. We love the player that he is. So we are just going to make sure we continue to maximize his security and safety for his return. So that’s what we are doing.”

Carroll is one of the best hype men in the NFL coaching ranks, but it is good to hear that Lockett is working his way back. He's a high-upside pick in the 13th round after being drafted in the 7th round last year. Fundamentally, not much has changed in the Seattle passing game since then.
