Seven Seahawks listed as questionable

Posted by Danny O'Neil

In cards, it's called a poker face.

In the NFL, it's called the injury report as the Seahawks listed seven players as questionable for Sunday's game, which equates to a 50-50 chance they will not play in Sunday's game at Oakland.

"Everybody is going to travel with us," coach Pete Carroll said after Friday's practice. "We just have to figure it out when we get to game time."

No one is ruled out. Not even left tackle Russell Okung, who suffered what was described as a high ankle sprain last week. Same for defensive tackle Brandon Mebane, who has not practiced in two weeks because of a calf injury that kept him out the past two games.

"We'll hang all the way to the bitter end to figure all that out," Carroll said.

The biggest question is at cornerback. Kelly Jennings did not practice, but worked out in a conditioning drill afterward, testing the hamstring that kept him out last week.

Rookie Walter Thurmond, who started in Jennings' place last week, did not practice this week, and while the team never used the word "concussion," it was a head injury that is the concern.

"He got hit in the head last week," Carroll said. "We're taking all of the precautions during the week to make sure we're doing the right thing by him, to make sure he's safe."

Roy Lewis projects as the Seahawks starter at left cornerback with Kennard Cox and possibly even Nate Ness also getting opportunities if neither Jennings nor Thurmond is ready to go.

"If they can't play, guys will jump in," Carroll said.

Offensive lineman Chester Pitts is expected to play for the first time this season.

"Chester had by far his best week," Carroll said. "He practiced right with everybody else, full flight. I would love to see him play in this game. It's about time Chester plays now if he's fortunate enough to do this. He's going to dress in this game."

Ben Hamilton remains Seattle's starter at left guard.
