Giacomini: “Just making sure I come back stronger than I was”

Seattle offensive tackle Breno Giacomini took a significant step in his return to the field Wednesday by getting back out on the practice field in a limited basis.

Thursday, as he spoke to reporters before practice, he said he “felt better” than he thought he might during that workout.

Still, he said he isn’t putting a specific timetable on when he expects to play again. He has not played since hurting his knee against Jacksonville in week three.

“Taking it slow and steady, you know?” he said, adding that he and the team want to make sure that when he comes back “I’m coming back stronger than I was.”

Giacomini said he wished he had been able to return “two weeks ago.” But his return was delayed when he had a procedure to drain fluid on the knee a few weeks after he had arthroscopic surgery.

“We’ll see how it goes (in practice) today and tomorrow and keep improving,” he said.

Giacomini, a six-year vet, said it’s the first time he’s had to miss games at any point in his career — high school, college or the NFL.

“It sucks,” he said. “It’s terrible. It’s bad, man. But it’s part of the game, I know. … this is the first time I’m going through it. Hopefully it’s my last.”
