Pete Carroll is not putting a timetable on the quarterback competition Drew Lock’s return from the COVID-19 list on Sunday raises doubts about who will start at quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks in their final preseason game on Friday against the Dallas Cowboys. Pete Carroll, the head coach, is still being evasive at this stage.
“Later in the week, I’ll either talk to you more about it or I won’t. I’m not certain,” he made a joke on the team’s official website regarding his intentions.
Lock should get plenty of practice despite missing last week’s game because of the positive test, regardless of who will start in the preseason finale. Although Geno Smith has received the most of the repetitions with the starting lineup, Lock was sharing the plays with the No. 1 offense when practice resumed on Sunday. Lock’s absence gave Smith the opportunity to take over the starting position. He didn’t, which makes it possible for Lock to take over the position. In the next few days, we’ll find out how this plays out.
