Monday in Hawkville

Published on November 28, 2011 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

A recap of the day’s activities at Virginia Mason Athletic Center for Nov. 28:

FOCUS ON

The week. Because the Seahawks are hosting the Eagles on Thursday night, their weekly schedule is getting the equivalent of being stuffed in a trash compactor.

Today is Monday, but also Tuesday. Tomorrow will be Wednesday, as well as Thursday. Wednesday will be Friday. Thursday morning will be Saturday, with Sunday afternoon coming on Thursday night.

Translation: There’s a lot of stuff that needs to be done in a short amount of time.

That’s why Pete Carroll did not have his weekly day-after news conference this afternoon, because the coaches were putting together the game plan.

As difficult as the task is for the Seahawks, it’s even more challenge for the Eagles because they have to make the Philadelphia to Seattle flight for the game.

How do the players handle this condensed two-games-in-five-days schedule? Mike Williams has some experience with it, because the Seahawks wide receiver played his first NFL seasons with the Lions, who play on Thanksgiving every year.

“It really is about getting back to work – game planning,” Williams said after Sunday’s game. “I’m not sure how much stuff we’re going to do physically, but you can watch film – a lot of film. What you don’t do physically, you have to do in the film room.

“We’ve got enough leaders and we’ve got enough vets, and we’ve just got to bring everybody along. … It’s more mental. When you have such a short time and you just finished playing a game, you just kind of want to heal and get healthy enough to get out there and play again for 60 minutes.”

INJURY REPORT

The Seahawks and Eagles had to file injury reports today because they play on Thursday night. The one for the Seahawks is an estimation, because their walk-through does not begin until 6 p.m. The Eagles held a walk-through earlier in the day. So here’s the report

Did not practice
WR Sidney Rice (concussion)

Limited participation
DT Alan Branch (ankle)
LB David Hawthorne (knee)
QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral)
CB Byron Maxwell (illness)
CB Richard Sherman (calf)

For the Eagles:

Did not practice
CB Nnamdi Asomugha (knee)
OT King Dunlap (concussion)
LB Moise Fokou (ankle)
WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring, shoulder)
QB Michael Vick (ribs)

Limited participation
DT Cullen Jenkins (thumb)
RB LeSean McCoy (toe)
CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle)

LINEBACKER SHUFFLE

Linebacker and special teams player David Vobora was placed on injured reserve today after being injured in Sunday’s loss to the Redskins. To fill Vobora’s roster spot, linebacker Adrian Moten was claimed off waivers from the Colts.

Vobora was originally signed Aug. 22 and made the 53-man roster on the final cut down, but was then released Sept. 4. He was re-signed Oct. 4 and played in six games. Sunday, he came in to play strongside linebacker in the second half after David Hawthorne went out with a knee injury, forcing K.J. Wright to move from the strong side to middle linebacker replace Hawthorne.

Moten signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent in July, but was waived Sunday. He played in 10 games, making four tackles and recovering a fumble on special teams.

Vobora becomes the 11th player to go on IR for the Seahawks, joining cornerbacks Marcus Trufant and Walter Thurmond; offensive linemen John Moffitt and James Carpenter; tight end John Carlson; linebackers Matt McCoy and Jameson Konz; defensive linemen Jimmy Wilkerson and Dexter Davis; and wide receiver Kris Durham.

STAT DU JOUR

Doug Baldwin is no longer on pace to become the Seahawks’ first 1,000-yard receiver since Bobby Engram in 2007. But the rookie free agent with Engram-like skills is leading the team in receptions (37) and receiving yards (604). If he finishes the season as the leading receiver, Baldwin will be the sixth player to do it in the past six seasons. Here’s a look at the group he would join:

Player                        Times (seasons)

Steve Largent              12   (1976-87)

Brian Blades                  5   (1989, 1991, 1993-95)

Darrell Jackson             4   (2001, 2003-04, 2006)

John L. Williams           3   (1988, 1990, 1992)

Joey Galloway             3   (1996-98)

Bobby Engram              2   (2005, 2007)

Derrick Mayes              1   (1999)

Sean Dawkins               1   (2000)

Ricky Watters               1   (2000)

Koren Robinson            1   (2002)

John Carlson                  1   (2008)

T.J. Houshmandzadeh  1   (2009)

Mike Williams                1   (2010)
