Seattle Seahawks starting right tackle Breno Giacomini has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow and is expected to take four to six weeks to recover.
The Seahawks are OK at cornerback with Richard Sherman winning his suspension appeal and Trufant returning, but they might be without linebacker Leroy Hill and right tackle Breno Giacomini.
Center Max Unger has been a key to the Seahawks’ third-ranked rushing attack, as well as a steadying influence for rookie QB Russell Wilson and a revolving quartet of guards.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he is holding the offense back on purpose, playing a conservative game geared toward not turning the ball over. But Russell Wilson will still have to get something going, as the Seahawks will not always get lucky on close calls in close games.
