Tarvaris Jackson Injury Update: Jackson Could Return Next Week

Tarvaris Jackson could return next week which would be good for the Seahawks who are dealing with injuries across the board.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is still battling a strained pectoral muscle but after throwing the ball well during warm-ups before Sunday’s game, coach Pete Carroll still decided against playing Jackson, who hadn’t practiced for most of the week. According to The News Tribune, Carroll said there’s a good chance that Jackson will play next week against Cincinatti at home.

Jackson is just one of a group of ailing Seahawks. Both center Max Unger and tight end Zach Miller were out with injuries prior to Sunday’s game and running back Marshawn Lynch was a late scratch himself. The loss of Lynch was a big one with Cleveland coming into Sunday’s game giving up 129 yards on the ground per game. Lynch was coming off his best game of the season two weeks ago against the Giants and would have had plenty of opportunities to continue with that momentum. But it wasn’t to be.

The Seahawks must sit and wait to see if their starting backfield of Jackson and Lynch can return soon enough to right the ship. A ship that only produced three points in their 6-3 loss to Cleveland on Sunday.
