RENTON — Starting guard J.R. Sweezy will not play against the Cardinals this week because of a concussion, coach Pete Carroll said.
Sweezy sustained the concussion during last week’s game against the New York Giants. He practiced Wednesday before the Seahawks realized he had a concussion and wasn’t able to make it back after that.
In his absence, the Seahawks could start James Carpenter at one guard spot and Paul McQuistan in the other. The two have been splitting snaps at left guard; Sweezy plays right guard. Other candidates are rookie tackles Michael Bowie and Alvin Bailey, who both have received some work at guard.
- Wide receiver Percy Harvin will not play this week, as expected.
- The Seahawks aren’t expected to miss any other players (linebacker K.J. Wright is out with a foot injury for at least a few more weeks).
