The bad news: Right guard John Moffitt, who has missed the last two games with a bad knee, will miss at least two more.
Mebane, who has been a major force for Seattle’s second-ranked defense, missed practice Thursday with a calf injury, but he practiced Friday and is probable for the game vs. the Panthers.
With right guard John Moffitt doubtful because of a knee injury and 2011 first-round pick James Carpenter expected to play for the first time this season, it looks like the Seahawks will roll out their fourth line combination in four games.
The Seahawks have invested three high draft picks on guys they expected to spearhead the rebuilding of the offensive line, but those three have had very little to do with the development of the unit.
It’s only the second week, and player fragility seems poised to stall any offensive progress and possibly derail the Seattle Seahawks’ season.
In news that should come as no surprise to anyone, the Seahawks will be starting yet another combination up front when they face Dallas on Sunday. It will be the 18th starting line combination for the Seahawks in Carroll’s 34 games as coach
Lynch practiced for a second straight day on Friday, but coach Pete Carroll said the running back would be a game-time decision. The rest of the team is looking to fill in holes, but the offensive line is being looked to as an anchor.
