The Seahawks will hope to see a few key starters returning to the lineup over the next few weeks, and per Pete Carroll, LT Russell Okung, C Max Under, and S Kam Chancellor "should" all play this week against the Bears. It's welcome news for the offensive line in particular, who struggled mightily in Preseason Week 1 but cleaned up some things on Friday. Adding two Pro Bowl caliber players back into the mix can't hurt.

Additionally, Bruce Irvin is close to returning, maybe a week away per Carroll, as is Malcolm Smith. As Tom Pelissaro reports, 3rd year linebacker Korey Toomer has passes his physical and will come off of the PUP list as well, meaning the Seahawks' linebacker competition will be heating up.

Seattle emerged relatively unscathed from Friday's game, injury wise, with LB Horace Miller the only major injury. Carroll said that Miller tweaked his knee pretty badly, and the team is awaiting MRI results. Hopefully, like Cassius Marsh before him, it's just a strain.
