Carroll: Jackson will play vs. Ravens

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that quarterback Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral muscle) should be ready to play on Sunday against Baltimore. Jackson fully participated in practice on Friday, as the team gradually upped his reps during practice this week.

“He has no doubt in his mind that he’s playing,” Carroll said. “So that’s the way that we’re thinking, it’s a really good chance unless something doesn’t work out on Sunday morning.”

Carroll said that going through the process of managing Jackson’s injury the past, few weeks has helped Seattle better prepare the team’s starting signal caller for this week.

“He did not take all of the snaps, but was available throughout the practice,” Carroll said. “We’re trying to manage it as we learn how to handle it. And he has a lot of input on that.

“But he made it through, and that means if you look at tomorrow with a good rest day he should be okay. But he still has to go out and throw on Sunday and get warmed up and (make sure) he’s feeling okay, so we still have to wait and see.”

Receiver Sidney Rice (foot) practiced fully and will play on Sunday. Tight end Cameron Morrah (toe/knee) fully participated in practice, but will be a game-time decision. And Carroll ruled out linebacker David Vobora (concussion) for Sunday.

For Baltimore, running back Anthony Allen (thigh) is out. Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (thigh) and receiver Lee Evans (ankle) are doubtful.

Linebacker Brandon Ayanbedejo (head) is questionable. Center Matt Birk (neck), safety Ed Reed (shoulder), linebacker Terrell Suggs (knee) and tight end Kris Wilson (calf) are probable.

  1. I need some help in understanding how is it that Carson palmer is having to understand a new system and he is not in football shape. Last nites game against the chargers he was awesome. T Jack doesn’t seem to have a grasp of a system he has been in for several years. What is up with all that?

  2. freedom_X says:

    You mean Carson Palmer who’s thrown 7 interceptions in 2 1/2 games? Tarvaris Jackson who has a QB rating of 73.2 vs. Palmer with a rating of 71.5? Yes, what is up with all that?

  3. GeorgiaHawk says:

    What is up with all of that? T Jack couldn’t hold Carson Palmers jock strap let a lone Matt Hasselbecks! And we could add Andy Dalton to that list freedom_X.
    I am so tired of this that I hope Portis gets some time with the starting unit before this season ends!

  4. This has little to do with TJack, but sad comments from a Yahoo article:

    “James Carpenter isn’t protecting Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks as much as he should, and he makes the list of worst offensive linemen this year. That list breaks down which players are giving up the most sacks and it’s not a list that any team wants to find a player on.

    Carpenter has given up six sacks this year, ranking him fourth on the list. On that same list Levi Brown (Arizona Cardinals) and Roger Saffold (St. Louis Rams) each have 8.5 sacks, so at least Carpenter isn’t even the worst in the NFC West.”

  5. Freedom, you misconstrue those stats so much its unreal. He threw how many picks in relief during a blowout loss a few days after he was traded. Otherwise, he looks legit.

  6. boucherm says:

    If you’re calling for Portis to start this year you’re an idiot. Period.

  7. freedom_X says:

    What’s the point here? Palmer is better? “Aaron Rodgers threw 4 TD’s and 0 ints last week. What’s up with that?”

    I’m not a mind reader.

    Is the point Seattle should have gotten Palmer?

    (sure, if you wanted to give up a 1st round and a 2nd round pick minimum.)

    Is the point Palmer is a better QB?

    (Maybe – so are at least 15 to 20 other NFL QB’s. And a sample set of 3 games is far too small to crown Palmer king. And Palmer’s O-line and running game are far superior to Seattle’s.)

    Palmer’s career is infinitely more accomplished, but it remains to be seen whether he’s still at the level he was 4 years ago or is on a major downslide. I’d wait until the season was over to judge that.

    The stats are just to show that this clearly obvious point isn’t so obvious.
