Friday in Hawkville

Published on October 7, 2011 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

A recap of the day’s activities at Virginia Mason Athletic Center for Oct. 7:

FOCUS ON

Ben Obomanu. The focus shifts to the sixth-year wide receiver because Mike Williams will not play in Sunday’s game against the New York Giants in the Meadowlands. So Obomanu will start opposite Sidney Rice.

Williams got a concussion in last week’s game against the Atlanta Falcons and has yet to be cleared to practice.

“Ben’s a really good football player,” coach Pete Carroll said after today’s 100-minute practice. “We’d love to have Mike. But Obo is a very, very capable football player.”

Obomanu has 11 receptions, which ties him with Rice was second on the team – one behind slot receiver Doug Baldwin.

OPPONENT WATCH

Victor Cruz. He doesn’t even start, but the Giants’ second-year wide receiver is cutting into the snaps that Mario Manningham has been getting. Cruz is averaging 20.5 yards on his 11 catches, including touchdown receptions of 74 and 28 yards against the Eagles two weeks ago as part of his three-catch, 110-yard day. Last week, he had a career-high six catches for 98 yards against the Cardinals.

“Victor has played well for us the last couple weeks,” quarterback Eli Manning said this week. “He’s just a guy that’s learning, a guy that we’ve put in the slot some and he’s been playing outside. He does a good job once he catches the ball of making guys miss, making some big plays.

“He’s a tough guy and he wants to learn. He wants to get better. He’s putting in the effort in practice and in the meeting rooms to understand what he needs to do.”
