NFL Injury Report:
Seahawks have announced several injury casualties for tonight’s preseason game
against the San Diego Chargers, according to Josh Alper of NBC Sports. Amongst
those ruled out already are DE/OLB Bruce Irvin and OG James Carpenter. Max
Unger, the Seahawks starting center, and Bobby Wagner, the starting middle
linebacker and defensive signal-caller, are likely to sit as well though they
are listed as game-time decisions.
reportedly dealing with a groin injury and though head coach Pete Carroll
indicated Irvin is close to returning, the team has chosen to take the safe route
with their former 1st round draft pick. The lingering injury will
come at an unfortunate time for Irvin. He is in the midst of a transition to
strong-side linebacker for the Seahawks. He has previously played almost exclusively
at defensive end.
also be missing the first four games of the regular season after being slapped
with a four-game PED suspension this offseason. It is clear Seattle was hoping
Irvin could provide some pass-rush help opposite Cliff Avril this season. Irvin
will have his work cut out for him in what has already been a bumpy transition
The loss of
Unger and Wagner are also unfortunate, though their positions with the team are
cemented. Each is expected back relatively soon and should not miss any
significant time. James Carpenter is expected to compete for time at guard this
season after being originally drafted as a right tackle. He is potentially on the roster-bubble and in need of in-game experience. The Seahawks hope to have him back

BEST OF MAXIM
Seahawks rookie running back Christine Michael got plenty of opportunity, carrying the ball 16 times for 89 yards as well as returning kickoffs. Rookie tight end Luke Willson got his fair share of reps playing with the first team offense. Other drafted rookies Ty Powell, Spencer Ware, and Michael Bowie also got significant playing time.
But while all of these players were drafted...
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michaels has been making a lot of noise at training camp, and coach Pete Carroll and his staff wanted to put him to the test. Michael got his share of touches in Seattle’s 31-10 win over the San Diego Chargers.
Seahawks have released wide receiver Early Doucet after he struggled with an
injury in his first practice with the team, according to Darin Gantt of NBC Sports. The team stated that their reason for releasing Doucet so soon after
acquiring him is because he “failed to disclose a physical injury” prior to
signing his contract. It is currently unknown what that injury...
On a team that counts continuity among its greatest strengths, the Seattle Seahawks are hoping that change can be a good thing for the defensive line.
Veterans Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett and Tony McDaniel were brought in to add depth and their value could become even greater while Bruce Irvin serves a four-game suspension and Chris Clemons recovers from knee surgery that has his...
The Glory Hogs
Yada Yada Percy Harvin‘s hurt yada yada. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, where was I?
Ah yes, the Seattle Seahawks wide receivers that will be healthy from week 1 forward and their projected stats lines.
They may not have the flashy big play ability of Harvin for the majority of the season (and potentially longer), but there are no shortage of stars in...
Let There be Depth!
I don’t care that for the most part I was watching second and third string players. I don’t care that this game meant absolutely nothing. It was Seattle Seahawks football, and for the first time in over six months it graced the screen of my dirty, dust-covered television.
The Seahawks kicked off their preseason last night with a week 1 romping...
Fight To The Death
Going into the week one preseason match up between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Diego Chargers, an important position battle is on the line that has gotten very little media play.
What happens if Russell Wilson goes down?
For a team with Super Bowl aspirations, and an offensive attack that can lead to a few hits on the franchise quarterback, the need to have...
A nice showing from Seahawks No. 3 running back, rookie Christine Michael, in the preseason opener - 16 carries for 89 yards.Fantasy Spin:Unless Marshawn Lynch gets hurt or has more legal issues, Michael shouldn't have much fantasy value this season, but keeper league owners should keep an eye on him and he could give backup Robert Turbin a run for his money.
The Seattle Seahawks have beat the San Diego Chargers 31-10 in their first preseason game.
In a game that ultimately means nothing at the end of the season, there was some good things to take away from this game. Philip Rivers finally looked comfortable in an improved offensive line. Unfortunately for the Chargers, there isn’t much depth behind the starting five offensive linemen...
The Seattle Seahawks will visit the San Diego Chargers in each teams first preseason football game of the season.
Ah. Preseason. Where the games do not matter but the roster spots do. If nothing else it will be interesting to see how San Diego plays under first year coach Mike McCoy.
Kickoff for this game is set at 10:00 pm ET.
The spread favors the Seahawks by 2.5 points...
