Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls is dealing with a minor ankle injury and will not play in Friday's preseason contest against the Minnesota Vikings, coach Pete Carroll announced Thursday.

As a result, Eddie Lacy will start at running back for the Seahawks this week, Carroll said.

Lacy saw limited time in the Seahawks' preseason opener, picking up 10 yards on four carries against the Los Angeles Chargers. He'll likely see a very modest increase in carries against the Vikings.

Here are some other injuries we've been tracking on Thursday:

1. Indianapolis Colts center Ryan Kelly will need surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot and likely is heading to the injured reserve/designated to return list, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

2. Tennessee Titans tight end Eric Decker (ankle) won't play against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, coach Mike Mularkey said.

3. San Francisco 49ers rookie linebacker Reuben Foster is dealing with a mild AC joint sprain and was limited in practice. Coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after practice, however, that he expects Foster to play Saturday against the Broncos.

Fellow linebacker NaVorro Bowman left practice Thursday with a mild AC joint sprain also, per Shanahan.

4. Los Angeles Chargers veteran left tackle Russell Okung reportedly has a left leg injury and didn't practice.

5. Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph said he's not sure if wideouts Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) or Cody Latimer (knee) will play Saturday against the 49ers.

6. Washington Redskins linebacker Junior Galette (hamstring) will not play Saturday against the Packers, while receiver Josh Doctson (hamstring) will likely be a game-time decision.

7. New York Jets wideout Quincy Enunwa is expected to get neck surgery next week, per the team. Safety Doug Middleton (pectoral) cleared waivers and was placed on injured reserve.

8. Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Danny Shelton (knee) was injured during practice on Wednesday and will not play in Monday's preseason game, the team announced. Shelton will be evaluated week-to-week.

9. The Detroit Lions announced today that they have placed linebacker Brandon Copeland (pectoral) on injured reserve.

10. Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon (left) and cornerback Charles Gaines (right eye) exited the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

11. Buccaneers tackle Demar Dotson is out for the remainder of the game after suffering a groin injury. Meanwhile, cornerback Josh Robinson has a hamstring injury and did not return.

12. Buffalo Bills tight end Jason Croom left the game after suffering an ankle injury. Wide receiver Rod Streater was carted off the field with a foot injury in the fourth quarter. Safety Trae Elston left the game with a hamstring injury.

13. Miami Dolphins cornerback Jordan Lucas left Thursday's loss to the Ravens with a groin injury.
