Seahawks' shifting offensive line getting healthier as it prepares for Cardinals - The Seattle Times
A year ago, the Seattle Seahawks started only four different offensive-line combinations in 17 regular-season games, perhaps an underappreciated reason for the team's surprising success. The injury report for most of this week as the Seahawks prepared for Sunday's 1:05 p.m. game at Lumen Field against Arizona looked ominous as four of the five players who started last week against the Bengals were either out or limited. The Seahawks listed three offensive linemen as questionable — Brown (hip), guard Phil Haynes (calf) and right tackle Jake Curhan (ankle). Coach Pete Carroll referred to all three as game-time decisions.
