Huge couple days coming up for Seattle Seahawks...


The Seattle Seahawks got some great news on their offensive line, with guard D.J. Fluker set to return to action this week.

Fluker may have to fight to get his starting job back now that tackle-turned-guard Jamarco Jones has played well in two starts as his replacement.

Fluker and Jones, along with veteran Mike Iupati, give the Seahawks a healthy trio of playable guards, and the team might be getting even more reinforcements with the potential return of rookie Phil Haynes.

Haynes (hernia) remained on the PUP list for the first six weeks of the season, but he returned to practice last week and will be tested over the next few days to evaluate if he should be activated in time for Seattle’s Week 9 contest against Tampa Bay.

“He handles the workloads,” coach Pete Carroll said on Wednesday. “These two days, today and tomorrow, are huge for him to show us where he is and whether he’s ready to come back for us next week. We’re going to try to max out the two weeks before we make that decision.”

Because Haynes remained on the PUP list into the regular season, he was forced to miss the first six weeks of action. Now that he’s back, the Seahawks have two more weeks to decide whether to place him on the active roster, waive him, or place him on the injured reserve – which would make him ineligible to play this season.

The emergence of Jones and the health of Iupati and Fluker certainly lowers the urgency to get Haynes up to speed.

However, the team did just waive guard Jordan Roos to make room for the newly acquired Quandre Diggs, which could be a sign they are ready for Haynes to assume a valuable backup role on the active roster.

Haynes won’t be on the field against the Falcons, but don’t be surprised to see him suited up for the first time in his NFL career against the Buccaneers in Week 9.
