Jackson newest addition to Seahawks injury list - 12/12/2006

First it was Shaun Alexander, then Matt Hasselbeck sidelined with injuries. Now, it's leading receiver Darrell Jackson. Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren said Monday that Jackson will not be able to play Thursday night against San Francisco, another blow for Seattle's injury-riddled offense. Jackson has turf toe, suffered on his last reception in Sunday's 27-21 loss at Arizona. Jackson caught a 23-yard pass from Hasselbeck with 3:15 left, but didn't return for the rest of the drive. Holmgren had no timetable for when Jackson, Seattle's leader with 63 catches for 956 yards and a league-high 10 receiving touchdowns, might return. Nate Burleson will start for Jackson. "Last year we were pretty fortunate," Holmgren said. "It happens, and you do what you have to do to plug the holes." Jackson wasn't the only major injury. Defensive tackle Craig Terrill will be placed on injured reserve after injuring ligaments in his knee. Terrill is the second defensive tackle to be placed on injured reserve, joining Marcus Tubbs, who was lost for the season with a left knee injury. Seattle is fortunate to be deep along the defensive line. Robert Pollard will be added from the practice squad to the four-man rotation at the two tackle positions that includes Russell Davis, Chuck Darby and Rocky Bernard. "Fortunately we had a couple of extra people there to start with, or else we would be in a world of hurt right now," Holmgren said. "We can still line up people and play, but we have taken a couple of hits in there." Oft-injured left guard Floyd "Pork Chop" Womack also is a question mark with a nagging groin injury. Holmgren said if the Seahawks had a normal week and were playing on Sunday, Womack might be able to go. But with the game on Thursday, Holmgren classified Womack as "iffy." If Womack can't go, rookie Rob Sims would start at guard. Womack missed five games earlier this season with a knee injury. Holmgren is hopeful Bobby Engram might be able to play. Engram has not played since Week 4 at Chicago, sidelined with a thyroid problem. Holmgren said he hasn't talked with the veteran receiver about if he feels well enough to play. "We're going to try and fast forward so that Bobby can play a little bit on Thursday night. That's my hope," Holmgren said.

 

Engram's slowing heart inching him back for Seahawks - 12/07/2006

Bobby Engram's heart finally has slowed. So now he can gradually get back up to Seahawks' speed. Seattle coach Mike Holmgren said Wednesday that Engram's latest blood tests have finally convinced doctors that he can play again. The team's leading receiver last season hasn't played since Oct. 1, just before a virus and Graves' disease caused a thyroid condition, an accelerated heart rate, debilitating fatigue and weight loss. "His numbers are finally where they are supposed to be. Bless his heart," Holmgren said. "Now, he has to tell me how he feels. He has to in his own mind, I think, feel like he can contribute and really go like he's used to going. "So there's light at the end of the tunnel." Holmgren stopped short of saying Engram, an 11th-year veteran, will play Sunday at Arizona. "That might be a little bit of a stretch," Holmgren said. "But we are going to get him back pretty soon." The 5-foot-10, 188-pound Engram has missed the last eight games and at one point had lost 8 pounds. He is slowly regaining the weight. For weeks, various medications failed to slow Engram's heart rate. But doctors recently found the right combination of beta blocker drugs that didn't leave him exhausted

 

Seahawks WR Jackson out of practice again, but still probable - 11/03/2006
Source: National Football League News Wire

The Seahawks are saying Darrell Jackson's injury is minor, but the concern for their offense could be major. Jackson spent his second consecutive practice inside the training room Thursday getting treatment for his sore left foot. But the Seahawks' leading receiver said he is "getting better," and he remains probable for Monday night's game against Oakland. Seattle is already missing its leading receiver from last season, Bobby Engram. He remains out indefinitely because of a thyroid condition that has caused an accelerated heart rate, extreme fatigue and weight loss for the past month. Engram has practiced for limited periods, mostly on the scout team, since Friday and has acknowledged he is still tired but getting better with medication. He isn't expected to play but remains questionable for Monday.

 

Engram continues slow, tired road back from thyroid condition - 11/02/2006

Bobby Engram was drenched in sweat. He was tired. He looked skinny. But the Seahawks' leading receiver of last season was smiling while seated at his locker after Wednesday's practice. It was his first work with Seattle's starting offense since a virus and Graves' disease caused a thyroid condition, an accelerated heart rate and a month of numbing fatigue. "I'm better," Engram said, smiling. "Frustrated, but getting better." The Seahawks list Engram as questionable for Monday night's game against Oakland. But his appearance and his words after running a few plays with the scout team and some with his mates on the starting offense suggested he's pointing toward returning for the Nov. 12 game against St. Louis, if then.

 

Seahawks' FG at the buzzer beats Rams - 10/16/2006

The luck of the Rams finally ran out. Twice this season -- against Arizona and Green Bay -- St. Louis was on the verge of losing, only to be saved by late-game fumbles by opponents. It almost happened again, but Seattle's Josh Brown kicked a 54-yard field goal as time expired to give Seattle an improbable 30-28 win. "It was a great game to watch, I'm sure," Seattle coach Mike Holmgren said. "A tough game to coach. Fortunately, Josh was on today." The win put Seattle (4-1) back atop the NFC West, a half game ahead of the Rams (4-2), who have a bye next week. Seattle won with MVP running back Shaun Alexander still out with a broken foot, and without wide receiver Bobby Engram (thyroid condition) and tight end Jerramy Stevens (knee). The game shaped up early as a Rams blowout. Two touchdown passes from Marc Bulger to Torry Holt and a 2-yard run by Steven Jackson gave St. Louis a 21-7 lead at the half. As dominant as the Rams were in the first half, Seattle was better in the second, scoring 20 straight points to go up 27-21 late in the game. Then the fun began. After Bulger's first interception in 204 attempts this season gave Seattle the ball deep in St. Louis territory, the game seemed over. But Leonard Little stripped Maurice Morris at the St. Louis 7 with 2:48 to play, and Jimmy Kennedy recovered. From the St. Louis 33, Bulger threw deep over the middle. Holt, in single coverage, got a hand on the ball at the Seattle 20, tipped it into the air, then grabbed it and ran into the end zone for a career-best third touchdown catch.

 

Seahawks' Alexander won't play Sunday; Engram iffy - 10/11/2006

League MVP Shaun Alexander will not play Sunday in Seattle's NFC West showdown at St. Louis despite recent tests that show the crack in his foot has diminished. Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren declared Alexander out on Wednesday. Holmgren called him "iffy" on Monday after a new round of pictures of the left foot Alexander cracked Sept. 24 during a win over the New York Giants showed some healing. Now the Seahawks will hope to have last season's NFL rushing leader return for their Oct. 22 home game against Minnesota. Maurice Morris will make his second consecutive start for Alexander against the Rams. Starting receiver Bobby Engram is questionable for Sunday with an illness that has left him listless and resting at home, yet another challenge for Seattle's recently struggling offense.

 

Holmgren playing coy, but Bears are likely to see plenty of 4-WR sets from Seahawks on Sunday - 09/30/2006

Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren wants to let everyone know that his four-receiver offense is not new, and it’s not the only offense his team plays. With undersized running back Maurice Morris replacing injured league MVP Shaun Alexander for Sunday’s meeting with the Bears, however, the Seahawks will go to their strong passing attack as often as necessary. It will make for some enjoyable viewing, as the Seahawks send out four receivers while the Bears try to capitalize on what may be a vulnerable offensive line with that many players running passing routes. The Seahawks raced to a 35-3 halftime lead on the New York Giants on Sunday as quarterback Matt Hasselbeck threw touchdown passes to Nate Burleson (a former Bears nemesis in Minnesota), Darrell Jackson and former Bears receiver Bobby Engram. Deion Branch, the new member of the Fantastic Four, had a couple of catches but did not score. In his weekly conversation with the media, Holmgren tried to downplay the four-receiver set, probably to no avail. “We’ve always had it in,’’ Holmgren said. “Now we have Deion Branch and we really can put four receivers in the game that can be pretty productive. You give up some things when you have that kind of formation. We’ve never done that more than a few times, a few snaps of the game. We did it a little more last week, but that was a game-plan type of thing. We have the ability to do it a little bit more than we’ve done it in the past.”
