The Seahawks got back to work after taking four days off. Who they’ll have playing on their offensive line in Dallas this weekend is still in question, however.
The Seahawks’ hope for a while has been than tackles Walter Jones and Sean Locklear could return after the bye, but the status on both is still up in the air.
“Well, we’ll see as we go along,” Seahawks coach Jim Mora said of Jones. “He’s still iffy. So we’ll see where he is Wednesday.”
Asked if there was a chance Jones will practice this week, Mora said, “There’s always the hope, but we’ll see. I don’t know for sure yet. I just don’t know for sure yet.”
“Same thing,” Mora said. “I’m not sure yet. We’ll see where he is Wednesday. Today was kind of a bonus day, so neither of those guys got much work.”
Mora called it a bonus day because the team normally doesn’t practice on Mondays, but did today coming off a bye. A bonus day also meant a light day for Matt Hasselbeck.
“He didn’t do a lot,” Mora said. “Matt’s fine, Matt had a good week last week and he’s doing good.”
The Seahawks will likely have linebacker Leroy Hill and Marcus Trufant back Sunday. “Leroy and Tru both practiced and they’re both doing very well,” Mora said. The Seahawks coach is also hopeful that Patrick Kerney can return from a groin injury.
As for Lofa Tatupu, who tore his pectoral muscle and may or may not need season-ending surgery, Mora said a decision has not yet been made on the linebacker.
“No update right now on Lofa, still in holding pattern,” Mora said. “We’ll see. Still evaluating what the best decision is for Lofa, so we’ll see. As soon as we can tell you something we’ll let you know.”
