Seahawks coach Pete Carroll held his regular Monday morning radio appearance on the team’s flagship station today, ESPN 710 Seattle, and dropped a few nuggets regarding the team’s personnel, along with lots of talk about Sunday’s game. You can find the audio here.
Here are some of the noteworthy personnel items. …
— Carroll said starting right tackle Breno Giacomini had surgery on his knee this morning to remove some “loose bodies” that were causing him some pain. Carroll said the good news is that no other damage was found and that Giacomini could be back soon. “He could make a quick recovery on that one,” Carroll said;
— Carroll said center Max Unger, who was out Sunday with a triceps injury, was in the building Monday and feeling good and “excited to get back” though Carroll said it was too soon to know what that means in terms of his availability for Sunday’s game at Indianapolis;
— Carroll said, as he did after the game, that DE Michael Bennett has a strained muscle in his back and it remains too soon to know when he will be able to play again;
— Carroll said DE Bruce Irvin is back with the team after his four-game suspension for PED us. He also noted that the time off allowed Irvin to get healthy — he had been battling a groin issue during training camp.
