McFadden suited up

Dennis Allen said he would visit the issue of whether Darren McFadden would see action against Seattle and his answer may come as a surprise.

McFadden is suited up and ready to play. When Allen says football is football and you can’t worry about injuries, he means it. We’ll see how many touches McFadden actually gets.

Also apparently out or listed as “not expected to play” are Sebastian Janikowski, Jacoby Ford, Denarius Moore, Aaron Curry, Stefen Wisniewski and Richard Seymour. No surprises there.

Not expected to play for Seattle are running back Marshawn Lynch, cornerback Walter Thurmond, safety Chris Maragos, linebacker Matt McCoy, guard James Carpenter, wide receiver Doug Baldin, defensive tackle Jason Jones and defensive end Greg Scruggs.

During pregame, former Raiders coach and Seahawks line coach Tom Cable renewed acquaintences with several team employees. Nothing nearly so interesting as last year’s pregame, when Cable and Hue Jackson went through jogging rituals careful to always be on the opposite side of the field from each other.

    good punt return coverage for the chicken littles.

    6 straight runs tells me 1 thing, Wiz wont be playing in the opener, and Palmer is only in there to get reps with the center exchange.

    Giordano just made the 53 man roster, excellent timing, great hit to break up that reception.
