WORD OF THE DAY: QUESTIONABLE
As in the injury-status designation that indicates a player has a 50-50 chance of playing. That’s what tight end
Miller felt tightness in a hamstring during practice on Wednesday and did not practice the past two days, but coach Pete Carroll said Miller’s status won’t be determined until pregame warm-ups.
If Miller can’t play, rookie
“Luke’s done a good job. He’s measured up,” Carroll said. “So really, I’m anxious to see him play and take over this role with a lot of responsibilities.”
Unger has an arm injury that prevented him from playing last week. His status also will be a game-day decision.
“We’re hoping he can make a turn,” Carroll said. “He got some work done this week. It hasn’t gone as quickly as we had hoped, so I can’t tell you more than that.”

“He’s doing everything we want him to do. He’s playing really physical at the line of scrimmage and he’s causing problems more in the pass rush than he has. He’s playing good football.”
