Here are some brief injury updates from coach Pete Carroll's press conference Wednesday.

WR BEN OBOMANU (knee)
"We're just going to take it all the way to game time with Ben. We're going to rest him during the week and see. We think he can play. We have to see how effective he'll be, really when we run him full speed on Sunday."
Former CFL defensive back was running out of money when he finally got a call from the Seahawks. He's made the most of his NFL opportunity.
I’m not going to lie, Nike did it again. That’s some pretty sweet stuff right there. Marshawn Lynch has created a monster with this Skittles thing. I really hope this doesn’t start a trend of athletes popping candy on the sidelines trying to get seen. We really don’t need to see Cam Newton eating Nerds on the sidelines. Let’s just leave it with Marshawn and his Skittles...
It was a somewhat exciting year for Seattle Seahawk fans across the globe. Here’s a look at Seattle’s top 5 stories of the year.
Playoff appearance at 7-9
On January 2nd the Seahawks knocked off the St. Louis Rams 16-6 to finish the year at 7-9. This sent them home on a positive note at least, as they start to get ready for next year. NOT. With the win, Seattle was able to take...

Lynch's Skittles habit (a handful after every touchdown) is well known to football fans, and now Nike is getting some publicity by designing a pair of shoes featuring the fruit-flavored candy -- made special just for...
Tarvaris Jackson will end this season Sunday in Arizona the same way he began it: as Seattle's undisputed starting quarterback. Jackson outlasted the chants for backup Charlie Whitehurst early in the season. He came back from a strained pectoral muscle. He survived Seattle's 2-6 start, more than 40 sacks at the hands of opponents, and he has started more games this season...
His heart wishes the Seattle Seahawks had two extra weeks to vie for the postseason.
The rest of Golden Tate's body knows better.
If the NFL had its way, the regular season would grow from 16 to 18 games. Under such a scenario, the 2011 Seahawks (7-8) would still be in contention for a wild-card berth with three contests left to play. Instead, the playoffs are now a pipe dream...

</object Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson said that even though his team is no longer in the playoff hunt, there’s still plenty to play for against Arizona in the final game of the season on Sunday. “The record doesn’t show it because we’re a 7-8 team,” Jackson said. “But I feel like we’re a better team this year, and it’d be good for the record...
Dave Boling of The News Tribune profiles Seahawks safety Earl Thomas after Tuesday’s announcement that he made the Pro Bowl as a starter at free safety. Thomas said while the interceptions numbers aren’t as much as last year, more film study and a commitment to playing sound defense has led to less big plays given up by Seattle’s defense. “We always know what we’re going...
