Here we go again.
There are high hopes for him as a road-grating left guard this year, but an apparent knee injury in practice today could potentially derail a healthy start to the season.
Danny O’Neil reports that Carpenter limped off the field during today’s practice, and that he left “walking alongside a trainer.”
Nothing definitive has been diagnosed yet in regards to Carpenter’s knee, and the fact that he was able to walk himself off the field implies only a minor injury.
It will be something to watch though, as Carpenter’s immense strength and athleticism when healthy could help bring Seattle’s offensive line up to an elite status.
