Carroll on KIRO: Sweezy likely out against Arizona

Confirming what seemed likely when guard J.R. Sweezy missed practice on Thursday with a concussion, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said on his regular weekly appearance on KIRO-FM Friday that Sweezy is unlikely to play in Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Carroll clarified on the show that Sweezy suffered the concussion in New York. However, he was not listed on the team’s injury report for Wedneseday.

Sweezy has started every game for Seattle at right guard this season, making him the only  player on the OL who had started every game at his regular position. James Carpenter, who has been starting at left guard, is listed as his backup. Rookies Michael Bowie and Alvin Bailey can also play there.

Sweezy’s absence means this will be the eighth different starting offensive line combination for for the Seahawks this season.

Carroll also said on the show that cornerback Jeremy Lane rested a sore ankle Thursday but should be able to play against the Cardinals.

The team will release an official injury report with projected statues for the game after practice this afternoon.
