Lost in the clamor over Russell Wilson’s continued brilliant performance is the fact the situation with his eventual backup seems cloudy.
Free agent pickup Matt Flynn didn’t play at all Friday night, after sitting out of practice the previous practice, according to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced that Wilson would start on Tuesday, and Flynn didn’t practice the following day.
“Just wanted to rest his arm a little bit before the game,” Carroll said after practice Wednesday. “Nothing is wrong with him.”
But he apparently “still felt pain,” before the game, and didn’t take a snap.
Tarvaris Jackson, who hadn’t played in the preseason, finished the game for the Seahawks. He’s expected to be on his way out the door, but that could depend on Flynn’s condition, and whether anything actually is wrong with him.
