Charlie Whitehurst is expected to get the start at quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks in Cleveland on Sunday. Tarvaris Jackson is doubtful after suffering a high grade strain of his right pectoral in the Seahawks’ 36-25 win over the New York Giants two weeks ago. He was unable to practice during the team’s bye week and has been limited in practice this week. “We’ve prepared all week long to get Charlie ready to start and that’s what we’re thinking right now but we’re still going to see what Tarvaris does the next couple days,” coach Pete Carroll said Friday. “He threw well yesterday and feels OK today. So we’ll go all the way up to game time to see where he is, but we’ve prepared Charlie and we’re ready to do that.” Tight end Zach Miller is out for Sunday’s game with a concussion and neck injury suffered in the win over the Giants. The team only has one other active tight end on the roster in Anthony McCoy, who is expected to start in Miller’s place.
