Eleven Seahawks are on the "not expected to play" list for Friday night’s preseason game against the Chicago Bears at CenturyLink Field. But the bigger development is K.J. Wright starting at middle linebacker.
The starters will play their longest stint of the preseason on Friday night at CenturyLink Field, and for the Seahawks that also means having several starters make their 2014 debuts against the Chicago Bears.
When the Seahawks play their home finale against the Chicago Bears on Friday night, the starters will see their longest stint of the preseason – and several key starters could make their summer debuts.
Make-A-Wish recipient Chase Palmer attended the Seahawks’ walkthrough, when he met QB Russell Wilson, running back Marshawn Lynch and free safety Earl Thomas. Palmer also will attend Friday night’s game against the Bears.
On those rare occasions when Russell Wilson doesn’t finish what he starts, the Seahawks’ quarterback takes time to appreciate the energy being generated by the 12th Man fans and the plays being made by other players.
As good as the Seahawks’ secondary was last season; the challenge is to be even better. That’s why Friday night’s matchup Bears QB Jay Cutler is a good test for what awaits in their regular-season opener.
