Report: Seahawks to start Stone Forsythe at right tackle

Fans and observers had questioned whether it would be Jake Curhan or Stone Forsythe at right tackle, and if pre-game warmups are an indication, the answer is Forsythe.

The Seattle Seahawks have played the majority of the 2023 season without starting right tackle Abe Lucas since Lucas left the season opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Lucas has been on injured reserve since, and while he is eligible to return to the active roster, he has yet to return to practice.

As such, the Seahawks continue to look to their bench at the position, and after Jake Curhan struggled against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6, pre-gram reports indicate that Curhan will not be the starter at right tackle in Week 7 when the Seahawks host the Arizona Cardinals.

So, for those who had hoped that third year right tackle Stone Forsythe would get a chance to show what he can do, it appears he will be given that opportunity against the Cardinals. This combination of starters on the offensive line has a combined total of 74 career starts between them.
