Washington full go for 1st time since broken leg
Running back and former All-Pro Leon Washington has finished his
first extensive work in full pads in a Seahawks practice 10 months
after a gruesome leg injury.
The former New York Jets dynamo told coach Pete Carroll before
Friday’s practice he was ready for full participation.
Washington suffered a compound fracture in his leg last October
during a Jets-Raiders game. Some initially thought his career was
Seattle traded for him in April. He had been limited in the
first six days of training camp.
Carroll says he is excited Washington is ahead of schedule and
joining the competition to become the lead running back.
Washington says ”it’s just a feel thing” each day on how often
he will practice fully early in camp.
