RENTON – Rookie defensive tackle Jarran Reed looked to be injured during Wednesday’s practice, as he was taken off the field by a motorized cart after appearing to twist his ankle during a one-on-one pass-rushing drill.
Exhale, Seattle. The rookie Tweeted out afterward that he was OK and expected to be on the field Thursday.
Everything is ok I’m perfectly fine ..see ya tomorrow out there 12s

Reed was locked up with guard Will Pericak on the play, falling down onto his hands and knees after the play and staying there for about a minute.
Reed ultimately got to his feet, but appeared unable to put significant weight on the injury, which looked to be to his ankle. He was taken into the locker room and did not return to the workout. Coach Pete Carroll was not scheduled to speak to reporters after the practice so there was no update provided on his injury.
Seattle traded up to select Reed, a player the Seahawks evaluated as a first-round talent, in the second round of the NFL Draft. Reed has been playing defensive tackle with the first-string defense. Sealver Siliga – who fits a similar big-bodied, early-down run stopper profile as Reed – has yet to practice this training camp because of a calf injury.
