Seahawks list Marshawn Lynch as questionable for KC, though sounds like he’ll start as usual

 

The mildly surprising entry is Lynch, who practiced for the first time this week today, as questionable for Sunday’s game at Kansas City. That is somewhat counter to what Pete Carroll said when I asked the coach following the light indoor practice that just ended here in Renton if the Seahawks are merely maintaining the bullish running back’s health by limiting him in practices this week or if some new injuries have appeared.

“He’s just banged up,” Carroll said. “In years past we’ve always given him a lot of consideration to get him right. And he’s worked hard to make

Out for the year, DT Brandon Mebane to tackle something else: literacy issues in his home neighborhood

What did the Seahawks lose when defensive tackle Brandon Mebane went on the injured-reserve list Tuesday with a torn hamstring, ending his season?

The inherently overlooked, eight-year veteran does more for Seattle than devour two blockers while simultaneously smacking into a center on every play each Sunday.

He does more than stuff running lanes and free his linebackers to make tackles. He does more than sing self-deprecating songs in the locker room, like this one he bellowed Oct. 8 when I and other writers approached his locker before a practice:

I’m just a no-body/Tryna’ tell every-body/About some-body.”

Mebane is

LB Bobby Wagner out again for Sunday at Kansas City, six Seahawks miss practice with injuries

Coyle’s injury is the only new one listed; coach Pete Carroll praised the undrafted rookie today for playing through the injury in his second consecutive start for Wagner, who will miss his fifth consecutive game since getting a turf-toe ligament injury Oct. 12 against Dallas. Carroll said today Wagner has a chance to play next week at home against Arizona.

All others were listed last week. Willson sprained his ankle last weekend during Seattle win over the New York Giants, though the team is encouraged how quickly he is recovering and Carroll indicated there’s a chance the fill in

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

Seahawks place DT Brandon Mebane on injured-reserve (hamstring), ending his stellar season

 

The Seahawks have placed run-stuffing, blocker-devouring defensive tackle Brandon Mebane on injured reserve because of a torn hamstring, ending what had been a standout season inside for the eight-year veteran.

The team brought back tight end RaShaun Allen by signing him off the Minnesota Vikings’ practice squad to fill Mebane’s place on the 53-man active roster.

The loss of Mebane comes five days before Seattle (6-3) plays at Kansas City (6-3), which has the NFL’s fifth-ranked rushing offense with All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles.

Mebane was having the finest season of his career before he

Seahawks will be without key run-stopping DT Brandon Mebane at KC, likely to get Kam Chancellor, Malcolm Smith back

One big loss, perhaps two gains this week on the Seahawks’ defense for their huge test Sunday at Kansas City.

Coach Pete Carroll said key run-stopping defensive tackle Brandon Mebane has a “really legit” pulled hamstring and thus won’t play Sunday for Seattle (6-3) against the Chiefs (6-3), who have the NFL’s fifth-ranked rushing offense at 135.8 yards per game. Sounds like Mebane is going to be out a while, perhaps multiple games including next week’s at home against NFC West-leading Arizona (8-1).

Carroll said the team expects to know more on the

S Kam Chancellor missing game for 3rd time in NFL career, G Carpenter also out for Seahawks vs NYG

Kam Chancellor is missing his second consecutive game, and just the third game of his five-year career, today as the Seahawks get ready to kick off against the New York Giants.

Chancellor missed the entire week with a groin injury on top of the bone spurs in his ankles. The thudding strong safety also missed last week’s win over Oakland. He is a key to Seattle’s run defense, with huge hits near the line of scrimmage, but the Giants haven’t been running much or well lately.

Jeron Johnson will make the first start of his four-year career today, for Chancellor.

Seahawks bring back Bryan Walters to return punts, sign TE Tony Moeaki to indicate Zach Miller may remain out

Apparently that punt fill-in returner Doug Baldwin fielded at his own 3-yard line last week got Bryan Walters his job back with his hometown team.

Days after releasing him so they go add to a desperately thin secondary for the Oakland game, the Seahawks have re-signed Walters, the wide receiver and kick returner from Kirkland. The only reason Walters had been on the roster since Week 2 until last weekend was to return punts and kickoffs. He replaced All-Pro safety Earl Thomas on punts and then traded Percy Harvin on kickoffs.

 

Rookie wide receiver Paul Richardson has been the
