Seattle’s Robinson, Maxwell have ankle sprains

Seattle fullback Michael Robinson and rookie cornerback Byron

Maxwell both have second-degree ankle sprains and aren’t expected

to play this week at Pittsburgh.

Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that he wasn’t sure how long the

duo would be out and needed to see how each recovered. Robinson was

hurt when his ankle got rolled on during a first-quarter run, while

Maxwell was hurt during a kick return in the second half.

Carroll didn’t have any updates on left guard Robert Gallery or

wide receiver Sidney Rice, both of whom were inactive on Sunday.

Carroll said the two would be evaluated to see if they could

practice Wednesday.

Linebacker David Hawthorne, also inactive on Sunday, is expected

to practice and play this week.
