Just to clarify …

In answer to an earlier question, Mondays are usually a little stretching to work out the kinks from the previous day’s game. I think today’s 3 o’clock practice was to allow everybody to get back into town, get loose a little bit, get in some extra work that was not too intense. The players will have Tuesday off, and then it kicks back into a regular week — which actually will change next week, when the Seahawks play a Monday night game. Not sure yet how that will play into their schedule, and whether they get two days off and

Marcus Pollard suffers torn meniscus

Tight end Marcus Pollard said the surgeon discovered a partially torn meniscus in his knee when he underwent surgery. He jokingly said Mike Holmgren told him he is getting one week, so Pollard said he hopes to be back for the San Francisco. He said he could not pinpoint one play during which the injury occurred, but that it happened in the 49ers game on Sept. 30. He said it already feels better, and that he wishes he had done it before so he didn’t have to talk around for three weeks in pain.

Changes Along the Offensive Line?

I asked Mike Holmgren if he planned on sticking with the personnel along the front or would he shake it up in an effort to get something out of the running game. His answer was noncommittal.


“We’ll see,” Holmgren said. “We are going to look at some different combinations this week and see how that works. Whether we do it in the game this week, we’ll see.”


The question, as Boling and I discussed, is if you make any changes what are the possible changes unless they bring somebody else in? With Sean Locklear sitting out, both

Injury updates

The Seahawks went through a light workout, but not everybody practiced, something, coach Mike Holmgren said, that was the medical staff’s decision, not his. Matt Hasselbeck, Leonard Weaver, Rocky Bernard, Craig Terrill, Deion Branch, Sean Locklear and Darryl Tapp all sat out. Holmgren said he expects all to practice on Wednesday.


Darryl Tapp and Marcus Pollard both had surgery, Tapp on the broken hand and Pollard on the knee. Holmgren said Tapp will play, Pollard probably will not play against Cleveland but there is a chance he could be back in the Monday night game against San Francisco

The Blog is Back Full Time

After running away from southern California smoke for a week, the blog is officially back. The Seahawks have practice today from 3-4, with Mike Holmgren and Matt Hasselbeck availability afterwards. Lots of things to talk about this week, with Charlie Frye and Brian Russell both facing their former teams, with D.J. Hackett and Deion Branch scheduled to return and get in tune with Matt Hasselbeck and with the running game getting even more attention, if that is possible, than it has already. As always, I’ll file stuff from practice as quickly as I can after locker room availability.
