On Tuesday, Seahawks running back Ken Walker III missed practice with what Pete Carroll called “a little hernia thing.” A day later, Carroll announced Walker had a procedure but wouldn’t elaborate other than to specify that it’s not a hernia or a core muscle issue.

The Seahawks hope Walker can return for the Sept. 12 season opener against the Broncos.

Walker started in the preseason opener Saturday against the Steelers with Rashaad Penny out with a groin issue. Walker played 12 snaps and had five carries for 19 yards, one catch for 11 yards and a kickoff return for 22 yards.

The Seahawks drafted Walker 41st overall to pair with Penny, who returned to practice Tuesday.

  1. I had an inguinal hernia and was very fit at the time of surgery. It took two weeks to recover. But they said another 2 weeks to resume regular activities like lifting etc. I would be surprised if he played week 1. It’s a minium 4 week recovery for the normal person. But if he plays so be it

  2. Hawks are punting on season, get there rookie class some playing time and ramp up for next years draft, they have like 10 picks

  3. If Pete said he hopes to have him back for week 1, that likely means he’s out the whole season.
