Monday in Hawkville

A recap of the day’s activities at Virginia Mason Athletic Center for Oct. 10:

FOCUS ON

No-huddle. The Seahawks’ up-tempo approach on offense remains a focus because they used it so much in Sunday’s 36-25 upset of the New York Giants at the Meadowlands, and it was even more productive than it had been in the second halves of their previous two games.

“We started fast and we felt it,” coach Pete Carroll said during his day-after news conference. “Up-tempoing the offense, it fit us well – as we had hoped. We felt very comfortable in it.”

Comfortable enough to produce season-high totals in yards (424), rushing yards (145) and plays (76). The Seahawks also hit a season high for points, but of the 36 the offense scored 27 – one fewer than in last week’s win over the Atlanta Falcons.

“We ran the football, to create the balance we need,” Carroll said. “Of all of the things, in terms of the offense, the fact that we ran it was something I was really fired up about.”

INJURY UPDATES

The big one, of course, is the condition of Tarvaris Jackson’s right shoulder after he strained his pectoral in Sunday’s game. That was covered here.

Jameson Konz, who was signed off the practice squad last Tuesday, has ligament damage in a knee and will need season-ending surgery.

Tight end Zach Miller will have a MRI on the neck injury he got on a hit from Giants safety Kenny Phillips – which drew a 15-yard penalty.

Linebacker Leroy Hill got a mild hamstring strain in the game.

Running back Marshawn Lynch got a sprained ankle on the first play of the game when a player fell on his leg, but he returned to run for a season-high 98 yards and score on a 1-yard run.

Cornerback Marcus Trufant, who did not play against the Giants, also is schedule for a MRI. Carroll said Trufant’s back was so tight that he could not tie his shoes Sunday.

Wide receiver Mike Williams, who sat out against the Giants because of the concussion he got the previous week, has been cleared to return to practice.

STAT DU JOUR

It took Brandon Browner all of five games to run himself into the Seahawks’ record book. His 94-yard interception return for a touchdown to ice Sunday’s upset of the Giants was the longest in franchise history, breaking a record that was set in 1979. Here’s the Top 5 (all went for touchdowns):

Player (year)                           Yards

Brandon Browner (2011)         94

Sammy Green (1979)                91

Dave Brown (1984)                    90

Jay Bellamy (2000)                     84

Marcus Trufant (2007)              84

UP NEXT

Tuesday is usually the players’ off day, but this is an unusual week because the Seahawks have their bye. So they will practice, starting at 11:45 a.m. There’s also a practice scheduled for Wednesday at 10:45 a.m. The players will then be off Thursday through Sunday.

YOU DON’T SAY

“There’s no controversy here in this building.” Carroll when asked the inevitable question after Charlie Whitehurst played well after replacing Jackson against the Giants
