QB Jackson looking likely to return for Seattle
Friday, October 28, 2011
RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Tarvaris Jackson completed his most extensive day of practice since suffering a pectoral injury three weeks ago and appears likely to return for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Jackson went through pregame warmups with the team last week in Cleveland before the Seahawks ultimately decided to give him another week and give Charlie Whitehurst the starting nod. Whitehurst and the offense stumbled to three points and only 137 yards of total offense.
Pete Carroll said Jackson was able to do more work Friday than any day so far since suffering a high grade pectoral strain against the New York Giants on Oct. 9.
With the Seahawks 2-4, Jackson is eager to get back on the field.
