Seattle Seahawks defensive ends Raheem Brock and Red Bryant were among players who did not practice with the team today, as head coach Pete Carroll put his players through a 90-minute workout in helmets and shells outside on the practice field.

Brock was excused to appear in King County District Court for a DUI Charge stemming from an arrest in November of last year. Brock pled not guilty and has a pre-trial hearing scheduled for Feb. 6.

Bryant was an excused absence to be with his wife Janelle for the expected birth of the couple’s first child today.

Others who did not practice include defensive tackle Clinton McDonald (concussion), cornerback Kennard Cox (hamstring) and linebacker Malcolm Smith (concussion).

Receiver Doug Baldwin bowed out midway through practice after tweaking an ankle, and was listed as a limited participant on Thursday’s practice report.

Offensive lineman Robert Gallery, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral) and linebacker David Hawthorne (knee) were listed as full participants.

For San Francisco, linebacker Blake Costanzo (non injury related), receiver Ted Ginn (ankle) and linebacker Patrick Willis (hamstring) did not practice.

Receiver Braylon Edwards (knee) and running back Bruce Miller (knee) were limited participants.

    If it wasn’t for the special teams meltdown, we had a good chance of beating the 49ers in the first game imo.
    If Ginn and Willis are out for this game, we have to take advantage of it!
    It should be a fun game!

  2. I hope Willis plays. I want to see our guys play a good team with their best players. I know, we aren’t with our best either (Rice, Okung, etc.) but I want to see us respond the way we did against Baltimore. I don’t want to have a worthless Vince Young Eagles team or a Bears team that has proven it can’t win without Cutler/Forte, or a couple of slop wins against the Rams. I want to bookend this impressive steak with the Ravens (done) and 49ers (?) who are both legit teams and worthy opponents with wins. Then let the chips fall where they may next week against the Cards.

    Boy, let’s take it easy with WR injuries, no matter how slight. They need Baldwin Saturday.

    Both SF and Seattle are playing at a better level than week one. This will be a very different game.

  4. IdahoHawk says:

    San fran hasn’t gave up a kick/punt return all year?
    Last game at home Leon returns one.
    That’s my prediction.
    AND. This is a risky and.
    Lynch goes over a hundred.
    Bamm Hawks win 28 to 9

  5. Don’t have much better place to mention this, but tonight’s Final Jeopardy clue was about the Seattle Seahawks. About how they are the only team in the NFL whose name has the same 3 first letters as the city.


    We’re 7-7 right now.

    However, we could have easily lost to the Giants (Thank you, Brandon Browner!), the Cards/Ravens at home and we’d be 4-10. That’s not a good record and everyone would be talking about how bad we suck (or we could have played the Rams early in the season when they didn’t have their thousandth injury and were healthy enough to beat the Saints; or played the Bears before they lost their two best/most important players; etc.).

    Again, however, we could have beaten the 49ers in week 1 and easily could have won against the Falcons, Browns, and Redskin games (heck, even the Bengals game was winnable late). That would make us 11-3 (or 12-2 if the Bengals game would/could have gone our way) and ahead of San Fran in the division (since we would have beaten them in week 1 and they’d be 10-4 now, instead of 11-3).

    In the end, we’re probably where we should be, as everyone could point to games they “should” have won (or lost) during the season. But it’s still fun to look back and think “what might have been.”

    JZombie – That’s awesome! Thanks for posting that.

  8. IdahoHawk says:

    when I first started to read your post, you where pissing me of.
    I was thinking wellll.

    Your right.
    injuries are injuries.
    Calls are calls.
    It’s all good (not) The heart of this team lies in the secondary and coaching.
    I BELIEVE. Just not on the QB.

  9. IdahoHawk says:

    I would like to see a stat after the first half of the season. Who leads the league in turnovers. I would bet Seattle does by a long ways..

  10. Palerydr says:

    Actually I did that sort of in the stats heading and SF is +13 in their last 7 games Seattle is +9 so no they are not way ahead of everybody else but certainly in the conversation.
