Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that defensive end Ziggy Ansah will not take part in practice until after the start of training camp. However, he is taking part in team walkthroughs as he continues to rehab his injured shoulder.
“He’s in the walkthroughs and stuff, today he was, so he’s able to get the huddle calls and make the calls and adjustments. He’s going to be really good at all that kind of stuff,” Carroll said.
“He’s working really hard and he’s doing great in his process coming back. It’s just a matter of strength-gaining. His shoulder is healed and all that so it’s just making sure that we don’t come back too soon and ensure that his recovery is for good.”
Ansah appeared in just seven games last year for the Detroit Lions due to injury. He still managed four sacks in those seven games and was a frequent disruptor of opposing offenses even when not wrestling a quarterback to the ground.
