In his regularly scheduled Monday morning appearance on the Seahawks’ flagship radio station, 710 ESPN Seattle, coach Pete Carroll said center Max Unger will return this week after missing the last two games with a triceps injury.

Unger, a Pro Bowl pick last year, has been replaced the last two weeks by Lemuel Jeanpierre as Seattle has had to play without three of its regular starting linemen.
Unger had said on Wednesday that he hoped to play this week, and Carroll also indicated he would be back. But Unger didn’t play and Carroll said after the game Sunday they erred on the side of caution to allow another week for the injury to heal.
Left tackle Russell Okung is out at least five more games with a toe injury while right tackle Breno Giacomini also appears unlikely to play this week after having arthroscopic knee surgery a week ago and spending last week in New York rehabbing.
Carroll also provided an update on Percy Harvin in the interview, saying Harvin has started running but that the team won’t know more until he works out for team doctors.
