Robert Gallery out a month to six weeks with groin injury

If a shutout loss in Pittsburgh wasn’t bad enough, the Seahawks got some bad injury news the day after the game. Left guard Robert Gallery, who missed the season opener with a knee injury, then returned to play against the Steelers, will be out for a month or more with a groin injury that will require surgery.

“Robert Gallery’s got a groin injury that he played with throughout the game, but it’s one where he’s going to be out for a while,” Carroll said. “He’s going to have to get it fixed. It’s about a month to six weeks type of time frame. We’ll hope to do that as soon as possible and get him all fixed up and get him back.”

Carroll said Gallery won’t be placed on injured reserve. With Gallery out, Carroll said that, for now anyway, the plan is to keep rookie James Carpenter at right tackle. Carpenter, Seattle’s first-round pick, moved to guard in place of Gallery for the opener. Paul McQuistan is the most likely candidate to replace Gallery.

“Right now we’ll stay with James at right tackle,” Carroll said. “Paul McQuistan would be the next guy up (at left guard). . . (Carpenter) played very well at right tackle in this game, one of his best games probably of the six. That’s where we are right now.”

On Gallery, Carroll said: “He’s an important guy to us. We’ve loved having him. He’s a fantastic character on your team, personality and all. The experience he’s been through, the knowledge that he has helps other guys, so you miss that. There’s not replacing that. It was good to have him out this week working with us, but it is what it is and Paul and Breno (Giacomini) and those guys have to step up and be ready to play for us.”
