Seattle Seahawks offensive line is providing Russell Wilson has improved from where it was in recent years.The statistics tell a far different story.No team in the NFL has seen its quarterback sacked more often through the first two weeks of the season than the Seahawks. It’s been a disastrous mix of mistakes by the offensive line Chris Carson Color Rush Jersey , Wilson holding the ball too long at times, and facing a pair of elite pass rushers that has led to the quarterback being sacked 12 times already.Since the sack became an official statistic in 1982, there have been 26 instances of a team allowing 12 or more sacks in the first two weeks of the regular season. But only three of those — Jacksonville in 2014, Houston in 2017 and Seattle this year— have come in the past 10 seasons. Jacksonville and Houston each allowed 13 sacks in the first two weeks, both on their way to terrible seasons. The Jaguars went 3-13; the Texans 4-12. But neither of them had an established, top-tier quarterback like Wilson calling the shots.All of which puts the Seahawks in the kind of company they’d rather not be a part of so early in the season.“We’ve tried to make him more confident in the protection. Even though the sack numbers are there, our protection is more solid than it’s been,” Carroll said. “It was throughout the preseason and Russell is counting on that rhythm to help him. He’s moving in the pocket a little bit because that’s what he’s had a lot of times. But the other part of it, the miscues and all are new. We’re missing this, missing that, and we can fix all of those things.”The competition Seattle has faced didn’t help the situation. The Seahawks opened the year having to deal with Von Miller and Denver’s front, then followed up in Week 2 facing Khalil Mack in his first home game with Chicago. The final result was Wilson getting sacked six times in each game George Fant Color Rush Jersey , which compounded other mistakes that have left the Seahawks sitting at 0-2.While coming home this week to face Dallas removes the challenge of playing in a loud environment, others have emerged. Starting center Justin Britt injured his shoulder late in the loss to Chicago while trying to get on a fumble Wilson lost while being sacked.Carroll said Britt was sore and would be day-to-day, but he did not practice Wednesday. Also sitting out practice was left guard Ethan Pocic, who was considered a candidate to potentially replace Britt at center. Pocic has an ankle injury.If Britt can’t play and Pocic is an unknown, Seattle may plug in backup Joey Hunt at center and shift guard J.R. Sweezy. D.J. Fluker, who started at right guard before suffering a hamstring injury in the preseason, is expected to return this week after missing the first two games.“We have to be better. The numbers aren’t solely on the offensive line but as a lineman you never want to see your quarterback on the ground,” left tackle Duane Brown said. “We have to do everything we can to correct it. We have to win our individual battles, communicate protections better, picking up blitzes better. We’ll get there quick.”The Cowboys are second in the NFL with nine sacks through two games and last season sacked Wilson three times and limited the Seahawks to 136 total yards. But Dallas still watched Seattle come away with a 21-12 win.“Lot of movement up front, line stunts, things like that. They don’t like to sit still. They like to move around and throw your scheme off Rashaad Penny Color Rush Jersey ,” Brown said.NOTES: Carroll said the team received indications from the league that LB Mychal Kendricks will be able to play this week. Kendricks, who pleaded guilty to federal insider trading charges, made his debut with the Seahawks on Monday and had three tackles, including a sack, against Chicago. … LB Bobby Wagner (groin) and CB Tre Flowers (hamstring) were full participants in practice Wednesday and are expected to play Sunday after missing the loss to Chicago.___ Thursday night the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos 22-14 to open their preseason, and one week from Sunday the team will take the field for Week 2 of the preseason against the M..."

While that might seem like the mid point of preseason for many, the simple fact is that the end of camp roster cuts are rapidly approaching, with teams set to trim down to 53 players prior to 4 pm Eastern on August 31, just three weeks from yesterday. As fans will most certainly be discussing these roster cuts and debating who should, and who should not Doug Baldwin Color Rush Jersey , make it, there will also be discussions of whether players should be put on injured reserve. However, the injured reserve rules can get somewhat confusing, so this is a quick refresher on the basics so as to help avoid confusion in the discussion in the coming weeks. There are effectively two key dates when it comes to cuts and injured reserve, and this year those are 4 pm New York Time, August 31: Deadline by which all teams must reduce the active roster to 53 players4 pm New York Time, September 1: Any player placed on IR prior to this time is finished for 2019 and ineligible to return during this coming season. So, any player that the team moves to injured reserve during the preseason is done for the year, and the player must stay on the 53 man roster for 24 hours after the deadline for final roster cuts before being moved to IR in order to be eligible to return. That’s all that needs to be remembered, so think of it like that, and it’s relatively simple and easy to remember. Now, in between those two deadlines come two other important deadlines of note. The first of those is that all players cut on August 31 who have three or fewer accrued seasons are subject to waivers. Any player who is put through the waiver system may be claimed by any of the other 31 teams based on the waiver priority determined by the standings at the end of the 2018 season. That does mean that the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers would have first and second dibs on any player the Seahawks C. J. Prosise Color Rush Jersey , and every of team in the NFL, waive come cut down time. Those players who wind up on the waiver wire may be claimed by any team prior to noon New York time on Sunday, September 1, with teams being notified of the players they were awarded on waiver claims by 1 pm New York time that same day. At that point, once it becomes which players cleared waivers, teams may begin building their practice squads from the players who cleared waivers. While teams will traditionally build their practice squads from players who were with the team in training camp the season prior, on occasion teams will get into a bidding war for a player from another team. Just a couple of recent examples of this for the Seahawks include Alex Collins, who wound up on the practice squad of the Baltimore Ravens in 2017, and in 2018 Alex McGough was paid the league minimum salary for a player on the 53 man roster while on the practice squad in order to keep him from signing with the practice squad of another team. Thus, with roster cuts just 20 days away and the competition at several positions set to be heated, things will certainly be interesting to discuss between now and cut down day.
