Pete Carroll talks about Mike Williams

Published on November 4, 2010 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll addressed his team’s injury situation during his Wednesday press conference.

And there are several. First off, Carroll said quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (concussion) will not practice today, but he still believes that the 35-year-old veteran will play on Sunday. However, he wants backup Charlie Whitehurst and practice squad guy Zac Robinson to approach this week as if they will play on Sunday until told otherwise.

Defensive end Red Bryant suffered a MCL tear in his right knee and will have surgery tomorrow. Offensive guard Ben Hamilton, who has a history of concussions, suffered another one on Sunday that was strong enough that he has not been able to report back to the team’s facility, so team doctors strongly recommended that he stop playing this year.

Offensive tackle Russell Okung (ankle) and Tyler Polumbus (knee) will not practice today, so Chester Pitts will work with the first unit at left tackle and Mike Gibson will go at left guard.

Carroll did not rule out either player for Sunday, but said Gibson is the emergency tackle, although they could also elevate Breno Giacomini from the practice squad. Gibson said he can also play center, which means he could play all five position across the offensive line in a pinch for Seattle. Carroll said recent addition Chris White can also play center, along with guard.

Allen Barbre is the team’s backup guard.

Along with Bryant being out, Colin Cole (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday, so Junior Siavii will likely get the start at nose tackle and Kentwan Balmer will get the not at 5-tech replacing Bryant.

Both cornerbacks Kelly Jennings (hamstring) and Walter Thurmond (head) are expected to practice today. Brandon Mebane (calf) also is expected to practice today.

Fullback Michael Robinson (hamstring) will not practice today, leaving Seattle with no healthy fullback on the active roster, although they could always elevate Chris Henry from the practice squad.

Both Golden Tate (ankle) and Mike Williams (knee) will not practice today, and Tate is doubtful for Sunday’s game.

As expected, Carroll also confirmed that the team will not put in a claim for WR Randy Moss. Several news outlets are now reporting the Tennessee Titans got Moss.
