A team never likes to have injuries in the preseasons. The only thing worse than an injury in practice is an injury during a walkthrough drill, which is exactly what happened to Chris Clemons on Thursday. KING5.com has the story with a few updates.
Clemons, who had off-season surgery on his ankle, re-injured that ankle in practice and was held out of drills for the rest of the day. The team held the defensive end out to get treatment and he hopes to be available for Sunday's game with the 49ers.
Rookie linebacker K.J. Wright continued to take the majority of reps with the first team defense with a knee injury to starter David Hawthorne keeping him limited. No official word on how much Hawthorne will be able to play on Sunday, though his knee has reportedly improved the last few days. If he is unable to start or if the injury were to worsen as the game continues, Wright, who played outside linebacker in college, could see a lot of playing time in his NFL debut.
