Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider had dueling interviews this morning on the rival Seattle-area sports radio stations.
Both sessions produced a couple tidbits of news.
Schneider told Mitch Levy of KJR-AM that offensive lineman James Carpenter, the team’s first-round draft choice in the 2011 draft, will move to left guard once he recovers from an ACL knee injury he suffered in December.
Also, Schneider said despite recent reports that the team has not decided whether or not Carpenter will be shut down in 2012. Seattle placed Carpenter on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list to begin training camp.
Carpenter played right tackle for Seattle’s season opener at San Francisco last year before moving to right tackle once Robert Gallery was healthy.
Carroll confirmed Schneider’s statement in his conversation with Brock Huard and Mike Salk of ESPN 710 Seattle. Carroll also said that rookie Russell Wilson will get the majority of snaps with the first unit in today’s practice.
