Did Flynn’s injury impact Carroll’s QB decision?
By 710Sports.com staff
Two notes from coach Pete Carroll’s Wednesday press conference caught the attention of Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby.
The first: Carroll’s announcement that John Moffitt, several weeks removed from minor elbow surgery, will start at right guard in place of rookie J.R. Sweezy, who struggled in Week 1.
“It’s good to have him back in,” Carroll said of Moffitt. “He was almost there last week, and if he makes it through the week solid and healthy then we’ll get a chance to see John come back for us, which will be great.”
The second: Carroll’s comments of the health of backup quarterback Matt Flynn, who did not play in the Seahawks’ third preseason game due to an elbow injury.
“He’s limited still. He’s limited on throwing. He’ll throw a little bit today. He didn’t throw on this day last week so he’s a little better than he was a week ago,” Carroll said, adding that Flynn’s elbow is “not 100 percent yet.”
How are these two related? Stelton and Grosby discuss that in the video below.
