RENTON T.J. Yeldon Jersey , Wash. (AP) — Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas was at practice on Friday but did not take part because of reasons of a personal nature, according to coach Pete Carroll.

Carroll left open the possibility that the issue — that he wouldn’t detail — could keep Thomas from playing Sunday in the team’s home opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

“He couldn’t work today,” Carroll said. “… We’ll see how he’s doing. Make sure he’s OK.”

Thomas did not take part in practice on Wednesday either and was listed on the team’s injury report as being out for non-injury reasons. He returned to practice on Thursday before missing the team’s final practice of the week on Friday.

Carroll confirmed that his absence had nothing to do with an injury.

“He’s got some other stuff going on we’re working on,” Carroll said.

Thomas held out from all offseason work with the Seahawks in hopes of getting a new contract from the Seahawks. The move did not succeed despite Thomas’ efforts and he reported to the team before the start of the regular season. The possibility of a trade has persisted, though nothing has apparently been deemed sufficient for Seattle to deal him at this point.

If Thomas didn’t play against Dallas, Tedric Thompson would serve as the replacement at free safety.

Meanwhile, left guard Ethan Pocic was ruled out because of an ankle injury sustained last Monday against the Chicago Bears. Center Justin Britt was also listed as questionable because of a right shoulder injury that occurred chasing Russell Wilson’s fumble.

“Just out in space he was running open area and he turned his ankle and it just flared up,” Carroll said of Pocic. “We’re surprised (with) how it looked that it didn’t respond. He’s certainly got something we found on the MRI and all that so we’ve got to take care of him.”

Carroll said Britt has progressed through the week and will be a game-time decision against Dallas.

“He’s feeling way better,” Carroll said. “Didn’t get the work this week though. He’s been out there with us a long time and he knows what’s going on so he could play on Sunday in this instance.”

D.J. Fluker is returning to the lineup at right guard after missing the first two regular-season games with a hamstring injury. Fluker’s return allows J.R. Sweezy to make his first start at left guard in place of Pocic. Sweezy has started 65 games over seven seasons in the NFL, but all have come at right guard.

Wide receiver Doug Baldwin and linebacker K.J. Wright have also been ruled out because of knee injuries.

Jordan Zimmermann looked like a $110 million pitcher in his last start. The Detroit Tigers hope the oft-injured Zimmermann can produce like that on a regular basis.

Zimmermann, who will start for the Tigers against the Texas Rangers on Friday in Detroit, has been a huge disappointment since signing a five-year Youth Richard Rodgers Jersey , $110 million free-agent contract in November 2015. His first two seasons with the club were marred by injuries and ineffectiveness.

He took another trip to the disabled list in May because of a shoulder impingement. He has made three starts since his return and was sharp at Toronto on Sunday, holding the Blue Jays to one run on five hits in seven innings. He didn’t issue a walk while striking out six.

His curveball and slider neutralized Toronto’s lineup as the Tigers ended an 11-game losing streak.

“My off-speed stuff was really good (Sunday),” Zimmermann said afterward. “I think the slider’s coming back.”

If Zimmermann (3-0, 3.91 ERA) can string together some quality outings, he could help the Tigers on two fronts. He could provide stability to a rotation that hasn’t gone deep into games often enough. He could also enhance his trade value, which would provide financial relief to a rebuilding franchise.

He lost his only career start against the Rangers despite holding them to three runs in eight innings in 2016.

Detroit’s roster has been in a state of flux since losing first baseman Miguel Cabrera to a season-ending biceps injury last month. Center fielder Leonys Martin and closer Shane Greene are on the disabled list, and Opening Day second baseman Dixon Machado has been designated for assignment.

Niko Goodrum, who has taken over second base, hit a solo homer Thursday but Texas took the opener of the series 7-5. The Tigers have lost 14 of their last 16 games.

Zimmermann, 32, is 13 years younger than his mound opponent in the second game of the four-game series. Bartolo Colon (5-5, 4.76) will make his 16th start this season for Texas.

Colon lasted just long enough to collect the victory in his last appearance Fred Warner Color Rush Jersey , when he gave up three runs in five innings to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

With another victory Friday, he will surpass Dennis Martinez for the most wins by a Latin American pitcher. They are tied at 245.

“Tying Dennis Martinez, it’s such an accomplishment,” Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre told MLB.com after Colon’s last outing. “It takes him a long time, 45 years, but it’s nice that he was able to get that, and hopefully he can break it in his next start.”

Colon is 9-10 with a 5.20 ERA in 29 career appearances (28 starts) against Detroit.

Texas designated hitter Shin-Soo Choo did not play in the series opener, so his on-base streak remains at 44 games. He is dealing with tightness in his right quadriceps.

“I don’t want to push it,” Choo told the Dallas Morning News. “Do this until the All-Star break, and the rest will help.”

Joey Gallo and Ronald Guzman picked up the slack Thursday, delivering two-run homers as the Rangers built a seven-run lead and held off Detroit’s late surge.
