James Carpenter will play vs. Panthers

A couple quick notes from Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll's press conference this afternoon.

Carroll said that offensive lineman James Carpenter will play on Sunday against Carolina, but will not start at left guard.

Chris Clemons(knee), Stephen Williams (concussion), Sidney Rice (knee), Brandon Mebane (groin), Tony McDaniel (groin) and Cliff Avril (hamstring) are expected to practice today.

Carroll said that Williams will not take part in any contact drills during practice as he recovers from a concussion.

Carroll reiterated that Jermaine Kearse will return kicks, and Golden Tate will return punts.

Headed to the locker room.
