RENTON – Mark Glowinski will start at right guard for the Seahawks in their preseason finale on Thursday.

And given the fact that it’s Oday Aboushi and not Glowinski who will be moving to the left side to step in for Luke Joeckel in Oakland, it would appear Seattle is looking to Glowinski to start the regular-season opener at right guard.

“He’s had a terrific camp,” coach Pete Carroll said of Glowinski. “Oday has had an excellent camp for us and really the whole entrance to our program, and really he has done a fantastic job, but you’ll see him on the left side.”

That was the most concrete information Carroll was willing to offer about his team’s plan for playing time in the preseason finale. He said that running backs C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls could play, but he deliberately did not state whether either player would play. Prosise has missed the last two preseason games after his groin muscle tightened up while Rawls has missed the last two preseason games because of an ankle injury.

Aboushi is entering his fifth season in the NFL, having previously played for the Jets and the Houston Texans. He started Seattle’s first and third preseason games at right guard.

Glowinski is entering his third season since the Seahawks chose him in the fourth round of the 2015 draft. He started at left guard last season, but moved to the right side in the offseason which is where he had played in college at West Virginia.

Joeckel is expected to be Seattle’s starting left guard, but he will miss the final exhibition game after undergoing Regenokine treatment this week along with four other Seattle teammates.
