Carroll optimistic Max Unger will be available this week


Starting center Max Unger left Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers with a chest injury that head coach Pete Carroll said after the game was a strained pectoral.

Unger did not return to the game and was replaced by backup Lemuel Jeanpierre.

Carroll said Monday that Unger has a chance to play this week against the New York Giants.

“He’ll be in limited fashion during the week. We think we’ll get him for the ball game,” Carroll said.

Unger hasn’t played up to the level he did last season when he was named a first-team All-Pro. He’s battled several injuries this season in missing three games for Seattle. An elbow injury cost him two games and a concussion kept him out for a third.

Seattle’s offensive line as finally been back to full strength for the last three games. Unger being able to play against the Giants would be a big boost for Seattle as they continue to rebuild their continuity after missing Unger, Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini for significant portions of the season.

    Big H2H shot in tonight’s game that was missed too. But it was incidental and one of those legal kinds.

    I love when PFT says that Pete Carroll “is optimistic” about something. FYI…He’s Pete Carroll. He’s optimistic about EVERYTHING.

    It will be good to have him for the 11-2, 1st place Seattle Seahawks.

    That’s the problem with steroids, they’re great for a while, but then your body starts to break down.

    Brilliant! haha people are taking hydrogen shots now is what that one fan suggesting. Educate your burns.

    Max Unger is going to go to the Pro Bowl off his name this year because he hasn’t been healthy. Great depth behind him in Jeanpierre, I don’t even notice a difference in run or pass. Go Hawks!

    You Seahawks fans are so pompous, arrogant, and disrespectful. You all are a lot like the team itself with Golden Tate taunting people when he scores touchdowns and Marshawn Lynch laughing and stopping in front of the end zone when he scores to taunt other teams. That stuff will come back around and kick you in the ass in the end. The Niners BEAT YOU on Sunday because they outplayed you on Sunday both offensively and defensively PERIOD. When a team thinks they are indestructible and that there’s no chance no one else will beat you, that’s usually when they get checked and put in their place like the Niners did them on Sunday. The Niners have FIVE SUPERBOWL CHAMPIONSHIPS. The Seahawks have ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO. Get it? Get a Superbowl Championship FIRST. THEN start talking crap. You guys make me sick.
