Greetings from Qwest Field, where the Seahawks will indeed breakout a new look today. It goes beyond the lime-green jersey – or perhaps below is a better choice. The players also will be wearing darker blue pants, which match the shoulders of the new-look jersey.
The more pertinent question for this game: How many players are healthy enough to wear them?
Coach Jim Mora said Friday that he was at 44, and looking for the 45th. Everyone laughed, but he wasn’t kidding. That’s also why he was adamant all week about asking the 12th Man to come ready to help out his injury-ravaged team.
We’ll be back later with the inactives, but LB Leroy Hill, OT Sean Locklear and CB Josh Wilson already have been ruled out. It’s also unlikely that QB Matt Hasselbeck, MLB Lofa Tatupu and OT Walter Jones will play.
