Seahawks and Chiefs Ready for Pre Season Game
NFL teams use their third pre season game to stretch out their starters a bit more, and to answer some questions about which back up players make the final roster. The Seahawks and Chiefs are no different.
Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson will start for the Seahawks, a clear signal he’s getting serious consideration from coach Pete Carroll for the permanent job.
The Chiefs may have to tweak their approach to the game, too, after top wide receiver Dwayne Bowe waited until last week to sign his franchise tender and report to camp, giving him a matter of days to start learning the playbook and get up to speed.
Both teams have plenty to figure out tomorrow night at Arrowhead Stadium.
Carroll has not said how long Wilson will play tomorrow, or when free agent Matt Flynn will see playing time. Flynn sat out Wednesday’s practice to rest his arm.
Wide receiver Sidney Rice will see his first game action of the pre season. Rice is coming back from shoulder surgery.
Receiver Doug Baldwin will not see action, giving a hamstring injury a rest.
