Wednesday in Hawkville

Published on November 17, 2011 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

A recap of the day’s activities at Virginia Mason Athletic Center for Nov. 16:

FOCUS ON

Tarvaris Jackson. Pete Carroll was asked the weekly midweek question about his quarterback and that sore right shoulder today – not to be confused with the early-in-the-week and later-in-the-week questions about the same subject.

“I can’t tell you that,” the Seahawks’ coach said to the is-Jackson’s-pectoral-getting-better-week-to-week inquiry. “At the end of Friday, we’ll know. Because he goes back and forth. It doesn’t just always steadily improve for him and it responds each day that he works.

“So it’s a minimal amount of work that he’s doing and he’s doing fine. He’s doing remarkably well under the circumstances and we’ll see how he does again this week.”

Jackson is expected to start Sunday’s game against the Rams in St. Louis, just as he has the past two games – after limited work in practice during the week. Carroll said Jackson threw only one pass in today’s morning walk-through and the QB was then limited in practice this afternoon, when backup Charlie Whitehurst got most of the reps with the No. 1 offense.

It’s all part of the process that has become Jackson’s weekly pain-tolerance routine since injuring his throwing shoulder in the Week 5 upset of the Giants.

“We’re all just learning,” Carroll said. “He’s kind of learning himself with what he can do and what he can’t do. We know kind of what the rhythms are of it now and we’ll see what he can do and then we’ll just take the next day and find out.

“Unfortunately, he can’t practice very much and when he does he’s holding back. That’s just the way it is.”

OPPONENT WATCH

Brandon Lloyd. The veteran wide receiver has been quite the catch for the Rams. In four games since joining the team, Lloyd has 21 receptions for 255 yards and two touchdowns – and the Rams have won two of their past three games.

“Since Brandon Lloyd has jumped on board they’ve picked it up and they’ve got it going,” Carroll said. “They’ve really gone to him. He’s probably been targeted more in the four games that he’s been there than any one receiver in the whole season.

“So they’ve really thrown him in the mix to make him a featured player and he’s done beautifully with it.”

For the record, Lloyd has been targeted 47 times in those four games. He’s also familiar with the Rams’ system because he played for offensive coordinator Josh McDaniel when both were with the Broncos.

“It’s been a big addition for us,” Rams QB Sam Bradford said today. “Obviously, that’s a position that we have gone through a lot of different guys this year – guys getting dinged up, different guys stepping in to play. I think adding Brandon to our team just added another weapon for us to throw the ball down the field and another weapon who, for the most part, we can rely on to get open in one-on-one coverage.

“Whereas before him, I’m not sure we really had a true No. 1 receiver. To get him here is nice.”

IN ’N OUT

The big news out of practice was rookie right tackle James Carpenter going down with an injury to his left knee during the pass-rush drill. The Seahawks’ first-round draft choice is scheduled to have a MRI tonight. After Carpenter was taken to the training room, Breno Giacomini finished practice at right tackle.

The four players who had recent concussions – wide receivers Sidney Rice and Doug Baldwin, strong safety Kam Chancellor and linebacker David Vobora – participated in the 100-minute, full-pads practice that was held in the indoor practice facility. Chancellor participated in all phases of practice, while Rice, Baldwin and Vobora were limited.

Ben Obomanu filled in for Rice and Golden Tate worked in the slot for Baldwin.
