Good morning. Here’s what’s “out there” about the Seahawks for today, Sept. 20:
Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times has the news from Monday that Robert Gallery will be out four to six weeks because of a groin injury that will require surgery. Offers O’Neil: “Well, that makes yet another injury to the latest veteran lineman Seattle signed to fill the position that has been the franchise’s black hole since Steve Hutchinson left in 2006. Gallery became the 12th different starting left guard for Seattle dating to the start of the 2006 season, the most at any position.”
Eric Williams of the News Tribune also has the news on Gallery. Says Williams: “(Pete) Carroll said he plans on keeping rookie James Carpenter at right tackle because he’s playing well there – Carpenter played well against Pittsburgh, Carroll said – so McQuistan will go to left guard after Carpenter started the opening game there in place of Gallery. It’s familiar duty for McQuistan, a sixth-year pro out of Weber State, who backed up Gallery with the Raiders, starting six games in 2006 and six in 2007 for Oakland.”
Scott Johnson of the Everett Herald continues his “Game of My Life” series with a look at Dave Krieg, his improbable NFL career and his most memorable game. Says Krieg: “Now, 18 to 20 years later, I don’t dwell on the game that much. But when the season starts up, and you see the Raiders, that’s the game I think of. It was the first time the franchise ever won a division championship, so that’s something you never forget.”
Also at the Herald, John Boyle also has the Gallery story. Says Boyle: “Gallery already missed the season opener after spraining his knee in the final preseason game. The groin problem actually is not a new one, according to Carroll, but was made worse by Gallery favoring his injured knee, and then the injury became more serious in Sunday’s loss.”
