Seahawks Vs Cowboys Injury Update: Tarvaris Jackson Probable; Alan Branch, Cameron Morrah Questionable

The biggest question of the day for Seahawks fans hinged on the status of Tarvaris Jackson and his strained pectoral. Jackson was hurt in Week Five against the Giants, missed the bye week and Week Seven against the Browns, and played two and a half quarters last week against the Bengals. His pec is far from fully healed though, and after practicing on Wednesday fully this week, he was limited on Thursday with shoulder pain related to that injury. The good news for Seahawks fans is that he practiced again fully on Friday, but it becomes a waiting game as to whether his shoulder pain will flare up again or whether he'll suffer a setback between now and Sunday.

Pete Carroll pointed out after practice that they're just going to have to wait and see, and Jackson will be a game-time decision. "I don't know until we get there. We're going to keep fingers crossed because we'd love to have him and he'd love to play. If it's even close, he's going to tell me can. So we've just got to evaluate it as we go and we'll watch him throw in pregame (warm-ups) to make sure it's right."

"Tarvaris does not feel great. He's barely making it through practice," Pete Carroll noted. "But he did. We go into the weekend thinking he's got a chance to play for us."

Also injured for the Seahawks are Cameron Morrah, Alan Branch, and David Vobora, all listed as questionable. Sidney Rice is on the probable list, but the Carroll did announce today that he'll be a go on Sunday along with Mike Williams, and Kam Chancellor
