Flynn to start preseason opener for Seahawks

RENTON — For this week, Matt Flynn is the Seattle Seahawks starting quarterback.
Coach Pete Carroll announced after practice on Tuesday that Flynn will be the starter on Saturday night when the Seahawks open the preseason at home against Tennessee. Flynn will play the first half after getting snaps with the No. 1 offense the rest of this week.
Additionally, rookie Russell Wilson will play the second half against the Titans, leaving incumbent Tarvaris Jackson on the sideline as a spectator. Carroll says coaches know what they're getting from Jackson after he started 14 games last season and want to see the two newcomers in game action.
Carroll would not reveal if Jackson would be back in the quarterback rotation next week, saying "you'll have to wait and see."
