RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Tarvaris Jackson’s injured pectoral muscle won’t allow him to throw, Marcus Trufant couldn’t bend over to tie his shoes, Marshawn Lynch is hobbling around with a bum ankle and Zach Miller has a sore neck.
The bye week couldn’t be coming at a better time for the Seattle Seahawks.
Coming off an impressive 36-25 win over the New York Giants, the Seahawks were basking in some unexpected attention on Monday thanks to the performance of unheralded players like wide receiver Doug Baldwin, cornerback Brandon Browner and backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst.
But injury concerns overshadowed much of Seattle’s excitement. Jackson will rest during the bye week due to a “high-grade” pectoral strain with no timetable on when the starting QB might be back in action.
