If it’s a Wednesday mid-morning, it means Seahawks head coach Jim Mora is speaking to the media. He didn’t bring the level of Tony Robbins as normal, but he really was never given a question to deliver a few comments of positivity and optimism.
That being said, it’s clear that Mora is upbeat following the win and also about finally getting a game at Qwest Field after three straight games on the road.
Here’ s some highlights from today’s press conference.
DL Cory Redding (concussion) will not practice today.
“He’s cleared up and feeling a lot better, but we’ll see where he’s at by the end of the week,” Mora said.
DL Lawrence Jackson has a groin strain and won’t practice today.
“We’ll give him one more day of rest and treatment, but we expect him to be available on Sunday,” Mora said.
LB DD Lewis sprained a knee and will not practice.
“We’ll see where he is for Sunday.”
RB Julius Jones will practice today, but Mora said nothing about playing Sunday other than that will see where he is later in the week.
Jones is still trying to find his way back into game shape. Yes, he hasn’t been out that long, but it doesn’t take long to get out of shape for professional athletes. Think about how long it took for you to get out of shape. Professional athletes are used to conditioning every day – well all of them but Pork Chop Womack. So Jones’ conditioning level isn’t close to where it was before the injury.
“The intensity of a game is different than practice, it’s different than being in the weight room or running extra sprints so that something that you certainly have to be aware of,” Mora said.
