A recap of the activities at Virginia Mason Athletic Center for 11-11-11:

FOCUS ON

John Carlson. The fourth-year tight end is on injured reserve after having surgery to repair a torn labrum. But not being able to play hasn’t stopped Carlson from being able to give back.

Today, he was named the Seahawks’ Man of the Year for his work in the community.

“Obviously, it’s just a tremendous honor, and not something that I expected,” Carlson said. “I accept it on behalf of all the guys on this team that do things in the community, because it’s not just me. Just like every year it’s not just the guy who wins Man of the Year. There are a lot of people on the team that contribute.”

His picture will now he added to a hallway at Virginia Mason Athletic Center that includes those of past winners – a who’s who of franchise history that features four-time winner Eugene Robinson and three-time winner Mike Tice as well as Jim Zorn, Dave Brown, Steve Largent, Jacob Green, Matt Hasselbeck, Mack Strong, Shaun Alexander, Marcus Trufant and Roy Lewis (last year’s winner who also was a finalist this year).

“It’s very humbling just to look at the guys who have won it,” Carlson said. “It’s truly an honor.”

Carlson also stressed the contributions of Sandy Gregory, the team’s director of community outreach.

“Sandy gives the opportunities, and she works very hard to make sure that we’re doing those things,” Carlson said.

“Obviously, it’s very important to do community outreach stuff because that’s the way we can make a difference. What we’re doing on the field is great, and we love what we do – it’s fun, it’s a blast. But we’re not making a difference by playing football. But it’s a platform by which we can make a difference.”

INJURY REPORT

The official end-of-the-week status report:

Out

LB David Vobora (concussion)

Questionable

TE Cameron Morrah (toe/knee)

Probable

WR Sidney Rice (foot)

QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral)

Jackson, Rice and Morrah all participated fully in today’s 85-minute practice that was held in the indoor practice facility. Coach Pete Carroll said that Rice and Jackson are ready to go in Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens at CenturyLink Field, but that the decision on Morrah’s status will be made on game day.

Jackson took more snaps today than he did on Thursday, when he got more work than he did on Wednesday. But the key with him remains how his throwing shoulder feels the day after the increased activity.

“We’re trying to manage it as we learn how to handle it,” Carroll said of Jackson’s shoulder. “And he has a lot of input on that. But he made it through. You look at tomorrow with a good rest day, he should be OK. But he still has to go out and throw on Sunday and get warmed up. So we’ll have to wait and see.

“He’s been great about it. He has no doubt in his mind he’s playing.”

For the Ravens:

Out

RB Anthony Allen (thigh)

Doubtful

LB Dannell Ellerbe (thigh)

WR Lee Evans (ankle)

Questionable

LB Brandon Ayandadejo (head)

Probable

C Matt Birk (neck)

S Ed Reed (shoulder)

LB Terrell Suggs (knee)

TE Kris Wilson (calf)

Reed and Suggs participated fully in practice before the Ravens flew to Seattle for Sunday’s game. They sat out on Thursday.
