-- Robert Gallery needs groin surgery and will miss 4-6 weeks. And that's probably a stretch. Honestly, wouldn't surprise me if he missed significantly more time than that. Not trying to be a harbinger of doom, but groin injuries are not good. In his stead, we'll get to see what Paul McQuistan can do. McQuistan is a veteran (6th year) journeyman that was formerly the 69th overall pick by the Raiders. If he falls on his face, I'd presume that Tyler Polumbus will get a look.

Per Danny O'Neil, Pete Carroll noted "It has been something that has been bothering him. He has had a groin issue that we thought, after the couple of weeks with his knee, that would get better. But it actually went the other way because of favoring the other side. He got a little more vulnerable, and he studded it out and played through it. He shouldn't have, but he did, and made it through it. We didn't know about it until after the game."

"We've loved having him. He's a fantastic character on your team, personality and all. The experience he has been through, the knowledge that he has helps other guys so you miss that. There's no replacing that. It was good to have him out this week working with us, but it is what it is. Paul (McQuistan) and Breno (Giacomini) and those guys have to step up and be ready to play for us."

-- Sidney Rice is practicing this week. Per John Boyle, when Pete Carroll was asked if Rice will play this Sunday, he replied: "That's up to the trainers, but they're taking him through a very rigorous program to prove that he's OK. You'd be surprised what they're doing to work with him. He has to make it through practice and all of that, we'll wait and see how that goes. We can't count on him until he can make it through the week, so we'll see how that works out. But he's determined, and what he's gone through to get to this point has been pretty rigorous to demonstrate that he's OK to at least go to this next level."

-- Mark LeGree got a job, on the Arizona Cardinalspractice squad. I'm happy for him, and I'm also hoping that it's not just for the week. He'll provide scouting reports to them on our defense, presumably, but hopefully he'll stick around there. And then get picked up somewhere for a 53-man roster outside the NFC West.

-- As far as I can tell, Dominique Byrd, Mike Gibson, and Josh Pinkard are still without a job, eagerly awaiting a call from John Schneider. Injuries during the season will impact whether or not they get that call, I would guess. 

That's all I got right now. What else is going on around the league?
