In his weekly Monday radio interview on 710 ESPN, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll stated that the injury suffered by right guard Oday Aboushi in the Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons was a dislocated shoulder. Carroll went on to state that Aboushi will not be able to play Sunday when the Seahawks travel to San Francisco to take on the 49ers, leaving room for rampant speculation about who would fill in at that spot.
Carroll says Aboushi for sure out this week with dislocated shoulder. Hopes Joeckel is back this week.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) November 21, 2017
Aboushi took over the starting role in week three after Mark Glowinski lost the starting spot he had held for the first two weeks of the season, and Glowinski is who the team turned to in the Monday night game when Aboushi left. However, the potential return of Luke Joeckel to the left guard spot will displace rookie Ethan Pocic, and Pocic had already been mentioned as competition at the right guard spot with Aboushi before the injury.
Thus, while it is known that Seattle will use the fifth different starting offensive line configuration of 2017 when the team takes the field Sunday afternoon, exactly what that line will look like probably won’t be known until the unit actually takes the field.
