Mike Williams, Ben Obomanu to be game-time decisions

Published on December 10, 2010 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Neither Mike Williams nor Ben Obomanu practiced for the Seahawks Friday, both will be game-time decisions for availability Sunday in San Francisco.

So how does Williams’ potential absence affect Seattle?

“We have to plan like he’s not there,” coach Pete Carroll said after Friday’s practice. “Fortunately, guys have practiced well. Ruvell Martin has done a nice job in that spot, and Golden (Tate) has had a pretty good week, too.

“I think Ben’s going to have a chance to play in this game also by the time the week ends. So we’ll see how it goes, and we have to adjust, but it’s not going to throw us off. We’d be happy to have those guys.”

With Obomanu, the question isn’t about conditioning, but whether he can catch a football given the numerous stitches in his right hand.

“Ben can run and do all that kind of stuff,” Carroll said. “He won’t have caught a ball until Sunday. So we’ll wait that out. We know he can go out there and perform and run around and all. Mike’s a little more of an issue because we have to make sure he can run full speed on Sunday.”

Williams was able to practice on Friday last week before he was active for the game. He was did not practice last week, and Carroll said that Williams was able to run more last Friday compared to this one.

As for Obomanu, he won’t try to catch the ball until Friday.

“He’s got stitches in his hand,” Carroll said. “They’re going to be there on game day. We’ve just got to see how it works for him and how the little device that they’re putting on his hand works out for him and all that. They’ve been experimenting all week and everybody feels good about it. I think he’s going to play.”
