Hey, “next man up!” Time for you again; Seahawks put TE Zach Miller on injured reserve

Since it’s another day, must be another Seahawks veteran starter going on injured reserve.

The epidemic of losses and the need for fill-ins to step up continued today with Pete Carroll announcing tight end Zach Miller is now on the season-ending injured-reserve list and needs a second surgery on his ankle because he is not recovering from the first procedure in September.

Monday, run-stuffing defensive tackle Brandon Mebane went on IR with a torn hamstring. Carroll clarified in the start of the video above that the eight-year veteran tore the muscle “drastically,” but

Pete Carroll: Rush end Bruce Irvin a “game-time decision” for Sunday vs. Denver; Tacoma’s Isaiah Thomas visits Seahawks

The Seahawks’ goal of affecting Peyton Manning Sunday with their four-man pass rush as they did in February while dismantling Denver in the Super Bowl may be missing someone on Sunday.

Rush end Bruce Irvin missed practice for the second consecutive day this afternoon, this one a lighter walk-through at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center here in Renton, and his status will be a game-time decision Sunday. He hurt his ribs in Wednesday’s drills. The Seahawks list him as questionable to play Sunday.

“He didn’t go today, but he feels a lot better,”

Seahawks snap counts from San Diego show Richard Sherman, Bobby Wagner go the distance; fly sweep gets swatted; links

On the way back from San Diego. The Seahawks got home last night on their charter flight.

Coach Pete Carroll will have his weekly, day-after press conference today at 3 p.m. in Renton. I hope to get word then on the condition of Seahawks’ assistant offensive line coach Pat Ruel. He stayed last night at a San Diego hospital after being taken out of the locker room to there following the game because of an irregular heart beat.

The NFL’s official snap counts from yesterday’s game show the entire offensive line played every

Who’s made roster strides; who can slow down Harvin?; reader request granted: quotes from Chargers-Seahawks

Good sunny Sunday morning.  The Seahawks were off Saturday and are off again from practice today — days off mandated by the most recent collective bargaining agreement. The players return to practice Monday through Thursday for Friday’s third exhibition, at home against Chicago. This week will likely be most starters’ final and most-extensive preseason action before the Sept. 4 opener against Green Bay.

–In today’s News Tribune I highlighted the three players I feel have gained the most through two preseason games: Terrelle Pryor, Robert Turbin and O’Brien Scholfield. Each has been in the league more than a day,

Impressive rookie DE Cassius Marsh injured in Seahawks practice, will have MRI on knee; Percy Harvin just fine

Fourth-round draft pick Cassius Marsh, whom coach Pete Carroll singled out last week in Denver for excelling in the Seahawks’ exhibition opener, went down in the practice that just ended with a knee injury. A team spokesman said the rookie from UCLA will have a magnetic resonance imaging exam on the knee to determine the extent of the damage. But it didn’t look good.

Marsh — whom his UCLA coach Jim Mora said plays like “a wild horse rider at times” because of his relentless energy — got tangled with Lemuel Jeanpierre, who was playing guard today, and defensive lineman

Pete Carroll glows about Marshawn Lynch’s conditioning; Jefferson has “substantial” ankle sprain

 

It was feel-good day at Seahawks training camp — for Pete Carroll, for Marshawn Lynch, for Justin Britt and Stephen Schilling.

Just about everyone by A.J. Jefferson.

Carroll said following the approximately hour and 45-minute practice at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center that Lynch is in as good a shape as he’s seen the star running back, and that “he’s getting a lot closer” to appearing in a game. Lynch, listed at 5 feet 11 and 215 pounds (Carroll refused to say what he really weighs), is in his second full week of practice after holding out for the
