VMAC Report 1/24/14: Hawks Ready To Take Flight
The NFC Champion Seahawks wrapped up the Renton portion of their Superbowl practices Friday afternoon, taking advantage of sunshine and 50 degree temperatures for another outdoor session.
Seattle head coach Pete Carroll thought the week went well given all the planning and preparation involved for a cross-country trip.
“There’s a lot of stuff that happens this week, getting prepared to leave and all of the family issues, and tickets that have to be taken care of. The football is in good shape, we’ve installed the game plan at this point. We’ll just add to it and tweak it from here,” Carroll told reporters.
The team has invited fans to come out for a send off at 10:30 Sunday morning. The buses will come off I-5 at S. 188th street in Seatac starting at 46th ave. s. up to 28th ave. s. Parking is available at several locations including city hall, Chinook Middle School, and Tyee Educational Complex.
The coach said receiver/return man Percy Harvin looked good as he worked out in three practices at VMAC. Harvin sat out the NFC title game against San Francisco due to a concussion, but is expected to be ready for the Super Bowl.
A number of front line players are listed as “probable” on Seattle’s injury report.
RB Marshawn Lynch has been dealing with a sore knee and did not practice Friday. WR Doug Baldwin (hip), LB K.J. Wright (foot), and CB Byron Maxwell (neck) did not participate. DT Brandon Mebane (ankle) was in the limited participation category.
Denver’s injury has DT Sione Fua (calf) listed as doubtful.
In the questionable category, DT Mitch Unrein (knee), K Matt Prater (illness), and RB Knowshon Moreno (ribs). All are expected to play in the big game February 2nd.
