It was “Victory Monday” today at the Seattle Seahawks practice facility, as the players were given the day off today. Players had the option to show up either to lift or watch film. Others came in for treatment.
Seahawks head coach Jim Mora said his team came through the game pretty healthy, and there’s a possibility that everyone will be healthy for Sunday’s game.
If that’s the case, then Cory Redding (concussion) and D.D. Lewis (knee) should be ready to go this week.
Mora said quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s shoulder is fine, and that he could miss some practice time but should be ready to go for Sunday’s game at Houston.
Mora also said that running back Julius Jones (bruised lung) came through the game fine and seemed to show no ill effects from the injury. Mora said the reason Justin Forsett did not get as many touches in Sunday’s game was the quad injury he suffered on Friday’s practice was still bugging him.
“He wasn’t 100 percent yet,” Mora said about Forsett.
As far as the division of workload between the two backs moving forward, Mora said he won’t know until the team starts to put a game plan together for this week.
Mora also gave offensive coordinator Greg Knapp a vote of confidence, who has received some criticism of late because of Seattle’s struggle on offense.
“I think Greg does a fine job,” Mora said. “I know he’s been successful in this league for a lot of years, and has a lot of great wins under his belt. He’s coached a lot of great players, and just like everybody, every day he comes here and striving to get better.
“None of us ever feel like we’ve arrived or we’re good enough. And I think Greg does a nice job.”
Mora also said the team is still struggling to find consistency and an identity offensively.
“It’s just a matter of us functioning better as a team,” said Mora about his team’s struggles on offense, in particular with the offensive line play. “Runners, tight ends, receivers, offensive line, quarterback. Offense is about timing and consistency and continuity and those types of things. And the process is ongoing with us.”
