RENTON — The Seahawks indulge in been support to work Monday afternoon after their “mini-bye,’’ the phrase for what indulge in been three days off for gamers following Thursday night’s 30-29 hang over the Los Angeles Rams.
The support-to-work notice used to be light — about 50 minutes or so on the field — though that didn’t terminate tight ends Luke Willson and Will Dissly from spending one other forty five minutes or so later on working with a jugs machine.
Then, all headed support out, certainly being attentive to the Monday night sport between the Browns and 49ers, which represented three of the closing Eleven opponents on the schedule, starting with a day shuttle to Cleveland up subsequent Sunday.
Coach Pete Carroll called the chance to compare the upcoming opponent are residing the week they are playing them “a uncommon opportunity” (while also calling it a “homework project” for his gamers).
Here’s more of what Carroll acknowledged following support-to-work Monday:
Mum on Fluker, but Pocic progressing
For the reason that Seahawks didn’t need to liberate an damage portray for Monday Carroll determined to play it imprecise on the one critical damage that arose from Thursday’s sport — a hamstring damage that sidelined starting true guard D.J. Fluker following the 2d sequence of the game.
But Fluker might perhaps well desire a tricky time making it support this week — Carroll called the damage both a pull and a rigidity and both one would likely mean the group playing it beautiful cautious in his return. And that might perhaps mean that Jamarco Jones might perhaps accept his first occupation open towards the Browns.
Carroll acknowledged Monday he wouldn’t decide to that, announcing handiest, “we’ll settle that out.’’
The Seahawks can indulge in an additional possibility there as Ethan Pocic, who has now not performed in the final three video games while struggling with hip and support injuries, “is going to take a look at this week,’’ Carroll acknowledged.
Pocic has sixteen begins in his occupation and has started at both left guard and true guard.
Carroll most impressed by Russell Wilson’s consistency
Quarterback Russell Wilson has been so correct this season that it’s almost powerful to earn one thing contemporary to possess about him.
But asked Monday what has most impressed him to date about Wilson, Carroll pointed to one thing that might perhaps well be easy to miss — Wilson’s consistency.
Wilson has had a passer rating of 102.6 or greater in all five video games this season. Just one assorted time in his occupation has Wilson had a stretch of five straight video games of passer rankings of a hundred or greater — in 2015, all the procedure through his memorable season-ending stretch when he threw 24 touchdowns and true one interception in the final seven video games.
Which formulation Sunday he has a broad gamble to intention a non-public label with a a hundred-plus passer rating for a sixth straight sport.
“He’s making the identical performs from one week to the next to the next to the next,’’ Carroll acknowledged. “Noble rolling one to the varied. So it’s his stage of play that has if truth be told shown up, no matter who we are playing.
‘His consistency is there, his confidence, his show has been the identical per week to week to week. It’s one thing I’m now not a superb deal surprised (by), it used to be true, ‘When used to be he if truth be told going to hang over and if truth be told private it?’ And I deem you might perhaps well presumably be seeing it from final Twelve months to this Twelve months he’s entering into that mode.’’
Run skedaddle will ‘reach alive’ soon
Sack and quarterback hits stats aren’t every part.
But opt any stat or metric that you if truth be told want and the Seahawks don’t noxious too highly.
Earlier than the Monday night sport, Seattle used to be tied for 30th in the NFL in quarterback hits with 18 (amongst the teams they indulge in been tied with used to be the 49ers, who had performed two fewer video games) and 21st in sacks with 10.
But Carroll repeated Monday one thing he acknowledged in the aftermath of the Rams sport — that he thinks the pass skedaddle will fortify somewhat somewhat over the following couple of weeks as Jadeveon Clowney and Ziggy Ansah accept more happy in the protection.
Ansah has performed true three video games, and used to be restricted in the well-known.
“There used to be if truth be told correct job (towards the Rams) from Jadeveon for obvious, to boot to Quinton (Jefferson),’’ Carroll acknowledged. “These guys indulge in been correct during the ball loads and we indulge in been so shut to a pair or four sacks. So that you might perhaps well presumably true if truth be told feel that it’s coming alive and true the mixture of Ziggy outdoors and what’s occurring interior, I deem we are going to be in a intention to work together greater and be in a intention to space them somewhat of bit greater.’’’
What’s going to even support is getting Jarran Reed — who had 10.5 sacks — support for the house sport on Oct. 20 towards the Baltimore Ravens after he finishes serving his six-sport suspension for violating the NFL’s deepest behavior coverage.
Phil Haynes, Demarcus Christmas might perhaps return to take a look at subsequent week
Two damage cases Carroll used to be delighted to communicate about indulge in been those of rookie guard Phil Haynes and defensive form out Demarcus Christmas, who every live to mutter the tale the Bodily Unable to Manufacture (PUP) checklist.
Haynes, a fourth-spherical opt out of Wake Woodland, has been out after having sports hernia surgical treatment. Christmas, a sixth-rounder out of Florida Utter, has had a support utter.
Both can return to take a look at subsequent week, and any week through week Eleven, which might perhaps presumably then kick off a three-week length by which they’ll notice. After three weeks the group has to think so that you might perhaps add them to the Fifty three-man roster or space them on injured reserve.
Carroll acknowledged every has a broad gamble to reach support subsequent week.
“Both guys appear to be (on track),’’ Carroll acknowledged. “They’re killing the trainers, the guys they are working out with they are wearing those guys out … they are raring to ride.’’
Of the 2, Haynes looks the presumably to accept activated and doubtlessly support out this season as he spent some time all the procedure during the off-season program working with the starting offense at left guard when Mike Iupati used to be out.
Left form out Duane Brown at one level called Haynes “a beautiful shock.’’
Placing any individual on the Fifty three-man roster, though, would mean taking someone else off and the Seahawks would indulge in a resolution to make — they indulge in got 9 offensive linemen on the Fifty three-man and wouldn’t seem likely to ride to 10.
But that’s a utter for one other day.
