Carroll: Unger, Giacomini unlikely to play

It’s become obvious as the week has gone on that starting right tackle Breno Giacomini was unlikely to play Sunday at Houston.

This morning, in his regularly scheduled Friday appearance on KIRO-FM, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll added center Max Unger to that list, saying he wasn’t sure either Giacomini or Unger will  be able to play against the Texans.

“We are banged up and we’ve got some guys that are going to have a hard time making it this week,” Carroll said, then naming Unger and Giacomini as the two who have not been able to get on the field this week.

Unger is dealing with an arm injury suffered against Jacksonville, and Giacomini has had a knee injury for a while that was  aggravated against the Jaguars.

Michael Bowie will step in for Giacomini at RT and Lemuel Jeanpierre for Unger if those two can’t go.

Seattle is already without left tackle Russell Okung, meaning the Seahawks could be without three-fifths of their starting line, including their two 2012 Pro Bowl picks (Unger, Okung).

Carroll said he preferred to talk about who would be playing than the injured parties.

“We have some guys (who will) step up and we really will always be about the guys that step in rather than the guys who can’t go,” he said.

Carroll will meet with the media after practice today and the team will release an official  injury report then.
