Greetings from the lovely – but archaic – Qualcomm Stadium. Game time conditions are perfect – 66 degrees with a little bit of a breeze and not a cloud in the sky.
The Seahawks announced that 18 players will not see the field today. They include Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice, Bryan Walters, Robert Turbin, Tharold Simon, Ron Parker, Bruce Irvin, Bobby Wagner, Cliff Avril, Korey Toomer, Max Unger, Mike Person, James Carpenter, Zach Miller, Darren Fells, Chris Clemons, Greg Scruggs and Tony McDaniel.
With Harvin out, Doug Baldwin or Jermaine Kearse likely will start at flanker. With McDaniel out, Jesse Willams likely will start at defensive tackle. Mike Morgan will start in place of Clemons at defensive end. Allen Bradford will start at middle linebacker in place of Bobby Wagner. And Luke Willson will start in place of Zach Miller.
