Carpenter’s situation explained

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was not available to the general  media after Monday’s OTA, nor was he last week. So we were unable to ask him directly why James Carpenter has not been practicing.

But Carroll did address it in an interview with ESPN 710 Seattle and revealed that Carpenter recently had another arthroscopic surgery on his knee with the hope of cleaning up a few lingering issues that will allow him to be ready for training camp.

ProFootballTalk breaks down what Carroll said, including the key quote below:

“He had a minor, clean-up surgery done about five, six weeks ago that was extremely successful. I just talked with him this morning. He feels great. He’s making all of the normal progress he’s supposed to make. He’s going to be battling for us.”

As noted there, Carpenter is moving to left guard where he could end up with the starting role, if healthy (Paul McQuistan and John Moffitt have been working there during the OTAs).
