Carroll: Seattle starters to play some in Denver
RENTON, Wash. (AP) Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wouldn't give specifics but he said his starters would play some in Thursday night's preseason opener against Denver.
Carroll said after a walkthrough practice Wednesday that he wants his starters to get a little time but the bulk of the game will be played by younger players. Carroll specifically said rookie linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (oblique) will not play.
Guard James Carpenter (calf) and backup quarterback B.J. Daniels (groin) will both dress but it's unknown if they'll play.
Second-round pick Paul Richardson (shoulder) should be available to play.
Carroll also said injured wide receiver Kevin Norwood had a bone spur removed from his foot.
