There’s no indication when Carpenter suffered the injury. Carpenter was a surprise addition to Friday’s injury report. He was listed as questionable with an illness, and was a limited participant in practice.
Carpenter started five games at left guard this season, coming off ACL knee surgery that cut short his 2011 season. Paul McQuistan started the first three games at left guard before sliding over to right guard to make room for Carpenter when he returned to the starting lineup.
The Seahawks could move McQuistan back to left guard again and replace him at right guard with second-year pro John Moffitt. Or the Seahawks could decide to let McQuistan stay put, and either start Moffitt or rookie J.R. Sweezy at left guard, which would be less of a shake-up to the starting five.
Whatever decision offensive line coach Tom Cable makes, Seattle likely will be starting its fifth different starting offensive line combination today.
Thurmond not activated
Cornerback Walter Thurmond will not be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list to the active roster for today’s game. The Seahawks have another week to decide to add Thurmond to the active roster or release him.
