Seahawks Insider Blog

Greetings from the Metrodome

Hey Folks

The only surprise in terms of guys not available tonight is TE Chris Baker (hamstring) will not suit up today, so expect to see a lot three receiver sets.

Others not available include CB Josh Pinkard (knee), OG Ben Hamilton (knee), LB Leroy Hill (knee), LB David Hawthorne (knee), OL Chester Pitts (knee), OT Ray Willis (knee), OT Russell Okung (ankle), DT Kentwan Balmer (ankle) and DE Nick Reed (knee).

As head coach Pete Carroll stated on Thursday, RB Leon Washington will start at running back and Mike Gibson will start at left guard.

For Minnesota, it appears Percy Harvin will not start today, with WR Greg Lewis starting in his place. So the Vikings will be without Sidney Rice (hip) and Harvin.

Also, frequent contributor here on the blog BobbyK is in the house. He's sporting a Matt Hasselbeck jersey and a Minnesota Twins cap and sitting behind the Seahawks bench.
