Quick Carroll stuff

Pete Carroll just finished his press conference.

Quickly, before transcribing, the highlights:

Hasselbeck has a slight concussion but Carroll said he thinks he'll play against the Giants.

Red Bryant is "going to be out a while at best," with his knee injury. Hamilton has a "pretty significant" concussion. Mike Williams has a bruised knee; Polumbus a sprained knee; Cole an ankle sprain. Golden Tate's ankle is sprained.

Carroll said they expect tackle Russell Okung to give practice a go on Wednesday. He thought Kelly Jennings, Walter Thurmond and maybe Mike Robinson will be back after missing this week. Brandon Mebane's calf issue is still a question mark.

Carroll wouldn't bite at any questions about the Hawks' rumored interest in receiver Randy Moss.

Leon Washington will be used again on punt return this week.

He said that John Schneider and his guys "are scrurrying up there a little bit" trying to shop for bodies that might help manpower issues, particularly at offensive line and receiver.

Watching the game film confirmed what they thought after the game, the Raiders clobbered the Seahawks up front on both sides of the ball.

He was particularly disappointed with the big plays the defense gave up.

He said he thought Chester Pitts "held up all right" in his first game back, having to play at guard and then tackle. The offensive line, at this point, is in "survival mode."
