RENTON -- Robert Gallery wasn't just back on the field last week in Cleveland.He was better."He looked quick and looked flexible," coach Pete Carroll said. "For his first time playing in five weeks he played well."Gallery was the player that Seattle signed to be the veteran anchor on its offensive line, but he was underwhelming in the exhibition season. Turns out there was a reason.An abdominal injury had been bothering him since the second week of training camp way back in August."It was something that I was just dealing with," he said.He missed two weeks with a sprained knee, came back to play at Pittsburgh in Week 2, and that's when the injury worsened past the point of playing through it."I knew I had to get it fixed," he said.He underwent surgery to repair the injury, which is described as a sports hernia.

Seahawks blogger KShell is begging the folks in the Seattle Seahawks 12th man fan base that are calling for undrafted free agent quarterback Josh Portis to be the next NFL teams franchise QB. It's a silly notion to the problems. He points out Tony Romo is the lone undrafted quarterback who is starting in the NFL. Enough said.
This week’s game against the Bangles isn’t going to be an easy one, even with the game at CenturyLink Field. The Bangles have one of the top defenses in the league, and against a sputtering offense like Seattle’s it could end up as another really ugly game. The Bangles are starting a rookie QB, and so their offense has been almost as bad as Seattle’s. Throw in the fact that...
In sports, stats are at their best when they can be averaged over a wide number of games. That's easy enough to do in baseball, where the pros get a whopping 162 games a year. NBA and NHL players get the benefit of 82 games a year to show their stuff. Even Major League Soccer players can count on 34 regular season appearances to average out their stats.
Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson limited in practice.
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant was fined $15,000 by the NFL for head-butting Cleveland tight end Alex Smith in last week's game.
Similar to last week, Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was a limited participant in practice this week, taking reps during 9-on-7 running drills and according to head coach Pete Carroll and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, taking reps and throwing the ball during walk through. Bevell said the team will walk a fine line between getting Jackson ready to play, but pushing...
Arian Foster thinks the Seattle Seahawks passed on him in the 2009 NFL Draft because of his bad attitude during a phone call. Whatever happened, the All-Pro seems to have landed on his feet.
Tarvaris Jackson completed his most extensive day of practice since suffering a pectoral injury three weeks ago and appears likely to return for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
RENTON — Tarvaris Jackson did some work with the first-team offense during Wednesday’s walk-through, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says the team is still in wait-and-see mode as far as determining Jackson’s status for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Carroll said Jackson will continue to get some reps with the starting unit this...
Tarvaris Jackson is listed as questionable, but took part in practice Friday.
