-- Seahawks starting QB Tarvaris Jackson has a high-grade sprained pectoral muscle, per Pete Carroll's press conference this afternoon. He has no timetable for Jackson's return and wouldn't rule out his starting in Week 7's matchup in Cleveland, but in the meantime Charlie Whitehurst will get the first team snaps. Rookie Josh Portis is for now the backup QB and Pete noted "I'm not going to have any hesitation with him" if he needs to.

-- Pete insisted Russell Okung is fine. 

-- Jameson Konz has a knee injury that will likely require surgery, meaning his season is likely over. Bummer for Konz, was his first NFL game.

-- Marcus Trufant has a bruised sacrum and that injury is not related to his back issues from last year. There was no timetable on his return.

-- Mike Williams (concussion) and Leroy Hill (hammy) will play in two weeks at Cleveland. 

-- Marshawn Lynch sprained his ankle early in the game but played through it. He's feeling it today but my guess is that he'll be fine. 

-- Zach Miller had an MRI on his neck today but no results available yet. No timetable for his return.

Thanks to Christian Caple, Curtis Crabtree, Liz Mathews, John Boyle, Danny O'Neil, the Seahawks beat, and the Seahawks' twitter feeds for relaying the press conference notes.
