Paul McQuistan back to LG for Seahawks, Moffitt, Sweezy to compete at RG

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE

With James Carpenter on the injury-reserve list, the Seahawks offensive line did a bit of shuffling.

The injury to James Carpenter has forced Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll to do a bit of offensive lineman shuffling.

Paul McQuistan moved from the right guard to the opposite side to replace the void left by Carpenter. J.R. Sweezy and John Moffitt are now competing for the right guard position, with each reportedly prepared to play against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Sweezy, a rookie, practiced with the first team lineman for a portion of the week, Carroll said. He believes Sweezy is ready to play on Sunday, with Moffitt having plenty of experience at the right guard position.

Sweezy started earlier in the season at right guard over Moffitt, but was eventually replaced. The 2012 seventh-round draft pick was converted from a defensive lineman to an offensive lineman by line coach Tom Cable.

Moffitt was drafted in the third-round of the 2011 draft out of Wisconsin by the Seahawks.
