A recap of the day’s activities:
Taking this show on the road. For the third time this season, the Seahawks will venture away from the comfort zone that is Qwest Field – this time to Chicago for a post-bye week game against the Bears on Sunday.
When coach Pete Carroll was asked Monday if he planned any changes this week compared to the weeks when the team traveled to Denver and St. Louis, he offered, “Yeah, hopefully we’ll play better.”
But there is a change this week: The team will leave for Chicago on Friday.
The Seahawks traveled to Denver and St. Louis on Saturday, only to lose 31-14 and 20-3. Last year, they left on Saturday for each of their eight trips, and were 1-7 on the road.
A recap of the days’ activities:
Craig Terrill. The Seahawks kicked off October by re-signing the sack-producing/kick-blocking/guitar-playing defensive tackle.
Terrill was released Sept. 7, when versatile defensive back Jordan Babineaux was re-signed. To clear a roster spot for Terrill’s return, linebacker Leroy Hill was placed on injured reserve because he will need surgery to repair the Achilles/calf injury he got in the Week 2 game against the Broncos in Denver.
“It’s awesome,” said Terrill, who got a phone call from the club this morning and was signed in time to participate in the final full practice before Sunday’s game in St. Louis against the Rams.
“I’m obviously familiar with that they’re doing, and love playing ball here.”
Terrill was a fifth-round draft choice in 2004 and played in 76 games the past six seasons. He has blocked five field goals in his career, which ranks second in club history behind Joe Nash’s eight; and had a three-sack game against the Oakland Raiders in 2006. He also has released a CD, CT, and sang the national anthem before the 2007 playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys at Qwest Field.
During his down time, Terrill was helping his wife, Rachel, raise their 2-year-old daughter, Journey.
“I got to be a husband and a father again” he said. “I’d wake up with my daughter so my wife could sleep in. I had a great time with my family and I’m ready to play some football now.”
That didn’t take long, as Terrill worked on the scout team defensive line against the Seahawks offense in practice and also got a few snaps with the No. 1 D-line.
“It’s great to get Craig back out,” coach Pete Carroll said. “He’s a guy that knows our system, knows our ways, can contribute on special teams right immediately for us and he’s a great guy in this locker room – everybody loves him. I’m glad he’s back with us.”
