Starting QB up in the air

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was purposely vague in discussing who his starting quarterback will be against Cleveland on Sunday.

While acknowledging that Charlie Whitehurst took most of the snaps with the starters on Monday, Carroll still holds out hope that starter Tarvaris Jackson can get healthy enough to make it on the field.

Jackson suffered a high-grade pectoral strain in the second half of the New York Giants game two weeks ago, and has not participated in practice since the injury.

If Jackson can’t go, Carroll said he will not change to offense, and Whitehurst can effectively run the no-huddle or anything Seattle wants to do on Sunday.

“We’re not changing anything at all,” Carroll said. “We’re just continuing to grow. Charlie has grown up with us in this scheme during this camp and everything that we’ve done in our tempo and all of that stuff, Charlie has been a part of that.

“So we basically stay with the things that we feel we can execute in the game, and we’re counting on Charlie to do that.”
