James Carpenter at guard? It's an option
"You have to develop all the flexibility that you can," Carroll said. "We’ll be in the game with seven or eight offensive linemen, so guys have to play multiple spots. So we did move some guys around today. (Carpenter) did play guard a little bit today."
The good news for Seattle is that LT Russell Okung will be back. In fact it sounds like he could have played in Friday's game.
"He looks good, he’s ready to go," Carroll said. ". . . He practiced enough last week to let us know that he would be ready this week. He worked really hard in pregame the other night, he was dying to play, but we wouldn’t put him in, we wanted a few more days. He practiced full got today, and he’s ready to go for this game."
WR Mike Williams (toe), LB David Hawthorne (knee) and S Kam Chancellor (foot) should all be back when practice resumes Wednesday and are expected to play, according to Carroll. The status of WR Sidney Rice (shoulder) is more up in the air.
"Sidney is a little bit slower that that," he said. "We’ll wait later in the week to know what’s going on with him."
Carroll also confirmed confirmed that WR Isaiah Stanback, who was placed on injured reserve Saturday, is no longer with the team. DE Jimmy Wilkerson, who was placed on injured reserve after spraining his knee Friday, was in the team's plans if not for the injury, Carroll said.
"He’s got a knee that needs surgery," Carroll said. "If that wasn’t the case, we would have hung onto him. . . but the damage is enough that there is no way we could count on him getting back."
