“As of this morning he’s feeling better and we’re hoping he will be able to go next week, but we won’t know until we get there, though,” head coach Pete Carroll said a couple of Wednesdays ago.
The Seahawks are hoping Avril will return and defensive end Chris Clemons will get a change to practice this week as well.
