The Seattle Seahawks will get their first look at DT Tony McDaniel this Friday against the Green Bay Packers, according to Eric D. Williams of the News Tribune. McDaniel was acquired by Seattle this offseason as a free agent and was expected to provide an immediate boost to the Seahawks defensive line and possibly even push for a starting job. However, McDaniel suffered a groin injury prior to the Seahawks preseason game against the San Diego Chargers leaving him unable to practice until this week. Now healthy, he will look to make a good impression for a Seahawks team that will be without rookie defensive tackles Jordan Hill and Jesse Williams this week due to injury. Also returning from injury along the Seahawks defensive line is second-year tackle Jaye Howard, who had suffered a mild shoulder injury last week. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will certainly use this as a great opportunity to look at some of his defensive line depth on the road this Friday. It’s also possible that defensive end Cliff Avril will return from injury this week against the Packers, though Seattle will likely play it safe with their star pass-rusher as they have chosen to do with wide receiver Sidney Rice, fullback Michael Robinson, and tight end Zach Miller. Head coach Pete Carroll also indicated that offensive lineman James Carpenter will be inactive for the Green Bay game, though the former first-round draft pick is reportedly very close to practicing.
