Red Bryant misses practice with foot issue

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant did not practice today because of a foot issue, the only player that did not practice as the team worked outside today.

Bryant missed practice with a foot issue the week leading up to the New York Jets game on Nov. 11, but still played on Sunday.

After practicing for the first time in over a month as a limited participant on Wednesday, offensive guard James Carpenter was a full participant in practice on Thursday, and appears on schedule to play this weekend against Miami.

Carpenter joined running back Marshawn Lynch (back), defensive end Greg Scruggs, cornerback Byron Maxwell, defensive tackle Clinton McDonald and linebacker K.J. Wright as full participants.

I talked with Carpenter about his injury after practice today. Carpenter said it’s the first time he’s had a concussion during his playing career, so he may have not recognized the symptoms.

Carpenter said he believes the he suffered the concussion during the Detroit game on Oct. 28.

“I went the whole week of practice just thinking I was sick,” Carpenter said. “I feel like it happened during the Detroit game, because I was feeling kind of bad Monday and Tuesday.”

Carpenter said he feels like he’s back to his old self now.

“I feel great,” he said. “I’m ready to go.”

I asked players for their favorite Thanksgiving dish and got some interesting answers, and also learned a few things.

I’m obviously a novice in the kitchen, because I did not understand the difference between dressing (baked) and stuffing (stuffed inside the Turkey). I usually avoid both at the dinner table.

“Dressing is cornbread, with your turkey, bell peppers and onions, and you have to use your hands to mix it all together,” Leon Washington told me “Then you put it in the oven. With stuffing, I guess everybody puts it in the turkey, and takes it out.

“So my favorite dish is down South, grandma’s dressing.”

I also had not heard of a Turducken until talking to Marcus Trufant, who explained that it’s Turkey stuffed with duck, and then the duck is stuffed with chicken.

Trufant said it’s something that his father, a New Orleans native, brought up from the Bayou.

And of course, since it’s the Trufant household, you’ve got to throw some hot sauce on it.

Here’s a few others:
LB Malcolm Smith – Macaroni and Cheese
LB Mike Morgan – Dressing
OL Paul McQuistan – Stuffing, with gravy over the top; Sweet potato pie
OL Breno Giacomini – Beans and rice
QB Matt Flynn – Green bean casserole

  1. Happy Thanksgiving all you Seahawks Homers and Seahawks Cynics!

    Things I’m thankful for today…

    Marshawn Lynch and Beast Mode!

    Russell Wilson, the most exciting young QB in Seattle in years!

    Tom Cable, who rebuilt our offensive line from one of the worst into one of the best!

    The inventive, non-stop, great football mind of Pete Carroll!

    And… 6 more Seahawks games! Plus Playoffs!

    Eric, Seriously, never heard of a turducken? Madden used to talk about them nearly the entire 4th quarter of every Thanksgiving game he’d do, back in the day. lol. Hope you’re able to get home with your family and enjoy a great dinner. Thanks for all your work here, man. It’s really appreciated.

  3. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Wow- RG3 has 8 TDS in the last two games and still trails Wilson.

    Lol- Dukeshire, my girlfriend and I was talking about turducken today. I didn’t know what that meant either, but she is from the southeast so I learned something new today.

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

    I’m with u duke. Ive only heard of turducken from the Madden thanksgiving games. I’d be interested to know if it significantly changes the taste of any of them?

  5. Dukeshire says:

    If you ever try one, let me know. Not sure I’m brave enough. lol

  6. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    makes the turkey more moist and the mix of seasoning used makes for a great flavor.

  7. PugetHawk says:

    I am guessing McQuistan heads to the bench (hopefully) for Moffitt and Carp goes back to left guard? That is the scenario I have been waiting for all season. If we can keep that group together down the stretch it will be great.

    Turducken is delicious but I am not sure how Madden always had six legs…

  8. confucious says:

    Agreed Puget, It would be nice to keep that set together. That may prove to be a dominant line configuration. Carp needs to hone his zone run block skills, he still sheds his initial too quick. But I like to see all that beef on the left side.

  9. confucious says:

    Thank you for running a fun and enlightening blog Eric. It sure has enhanced my Seahawks sickne…er…..experience.

  10. Palerydr says:

    A late happy Thanksgiving to all hope your was as good as mine.

  11. Georgia – What are you talking about? RGIII has more TDs, less INTs, more yards, a better rating, etc. How is he trailing Wilson? If you mean record, do you really think the Seahawks would be worse with RGIII? If so, you must also think Buddy Biancalana was a better shortstop in the majors than Ernie Banks b/c he won a World Series and Banks did not. It’s one thing to be a homer, it’s another thing to be unrealistic. I have a Wilson jersey on order and have no plans to ever get RGIII (unless he becomes a Seahawk), but that doesn’t mean I think that Wilson is better than RGIII (even though I like him better – since he’s a Seahawk). That’s like saying Hasselbeck was better than Brady or Manning in ’05… his team was (maybe not if Dungy’s kid hadn’t killed himself and that seemed to really mess with the Colts season), but we all know who the better QB was and it wasn’t Matt (as much as I liked him).

  12. Dukeshire says:

    I think Georgia may have been food-drunk when he wrote that. (And no. That’s not some imagined knock on Wilson, but the numbers are what they are.)

  13. confucious says:

    Could be “food drunk”. I know that I’ve done a lot of things on tripto that I’m not proud of. Please Georgia, seek help.

  14. HeinieHunter says:

    In the last week i RV’d south for the winter. Sitting in the desert enjoying the 70-80 degree weather. Thankfull for DirectTV and Sunday Ticket that allows me to follow the Hawks the rest of the season. Nine holes of golf before the game tomorrow. This retirement thing may catch on! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving….Go Hawks!

  15. Not really an R.G. III fan, but it is hard not to marvel at some of the things he’s done this year, on what appears to be a fairly bad team. Makes me wonder what he’d look like with a Sidney Rice to throw to, or a Zack Miller. You have to wonder about the read option gimmickry though, and how long it’s going to last. I give it until next season. Defensive coordinators spend way too much time logging way too many hours on ways to stop that sort of thing.

  16. Okay, so Georgia was trippin on tryptophan… I’m still a bit full myself… but he wasn’t far off. RGII has not yet caught up to Russell Wilson on TD passes. You can only compare them through 10 games.

    Wilson has 15 TD passes through 10 games.
    RGIII had 12 TD passes through 10 games, and 16 TD passes through 11 games.

    Oh, and Wilson has more wins — the only stat that really matters.

    Not to knock RGIII. Luck RG, Wilson, and Tannehill are the best rookie QB class in many years.

  17. SandpointHawk says:

    You go Stevos, my thoughts exactly but with the crap being posted on the blog this year who dares to post the facts anymore…

  18. Dukeshire says:

    Stevo – That’s not what Georgia said. He said RGIII has 8 TD passes in his *last two* games, and still trails Wilson. You can’t say he has 8 TD throws in that period and only then compare him through 10 games. It’s entirely counter to his claim. Those are two completely separate arguments.

  19. bbnate420 says:

    I don’t think you’re going to find a lot of people making the argument that RW is playing better than RG III. The only thing I’d worry about with RG III is whether or not he can stay healthy if he continues to run a lot. And I like RW a lot. He very well could turn out to be the better pick for the Hawks if you factor in all that they would’ve had to give up to get him. Time will tell.
