Seahawks have injury concerns at cornerback, center; NFL picks for Week 9

The Seahawks are practicing right now in Renton. Coach Pete Carroll will talk after it, with word expected on the status of Byron Maxwell and Tharold Simon for right cornerback and Max Unger and Stephen Schilling at center the most prominent injury issues to determine.

Here's one man's view of this weekend's game. The first four are the ones that will be on local television in the Seattle-Tacoma market -- not counting the Seahawks-Raiders game which I will pick in Sunday's News Tribune.
