Seahawks center of attention, Hunt or Britt?
It appears the Seattle Seahawks will be starting a rookie at center on Sunday when they host the Miami Dolphins at CenturyLink Field.
Once Germain Ifedi went down with a high ankle sprain Wednesday in practice, the Seahawks were forced into yet another shuffle of their already beleaguered offensive line. Changing up the starters just five days before the season opener isn’t ideal for anyone, especially a team who’s Super Bowl hopes may very well be dependent on the play of that position group.
The real intrigue, however, appears to be precisely who is going to line up in front of Russell Wilson against the Dolphins.

Rappaport’s report made sense, since this was the lineup the team went with after Ifedi left the field Wednesday.
But not so fast!!! Things have apparently changed.

In his report, Bell quotes Webb talking in very confident terms about being in line to get the start against Miami. “Oh, hell yeah!” Webb said. “I get to play next to Justin and Garry. It’s going to be a great week.”
