A morning link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks

Good morning, 12th Man.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today, Tuesday, October 1, about your Seattle Seahawks:

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times says defensive end Michael Bennett, who suffered a strained muscle in his back in Week 4, is feeling good and expected to practice this week. Condotta also writes that  Sunday's win over the Texans helped strengthen the Seahawks foundation.

Danny O'Neil of says center Max Unger could return to action this week after sitting out Sunday's game against the Texans with an arm injury. O'Neil also outlines three things we learned and three things we're still trying to figure out from the Seahawks 23-20 overtime win in Houston.

John Boyle of the Everett Herald indicates that linebacker Bruce Irvin returned to Virginia Mason Athletic Center on Monday from his four-game suspension. Irvin will be on the field when the team resumes practice on Wednesday and will do so with roster exemption status, meaning the team does not have to release a player to make room for Irvin on the 53-man roster. If Irvin is to play this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts, a roster move will have to be made by the end of the week.

Terry Blount of notes right tackle Breno Giacomini underwent successful knee surgery Monday and is expected to make a quick recovery. Blount also wonders if the Seahawks can remain unbeaten with the uncertainty present along the offensive line,

Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune looks at how backup offensive linemen Paul McQuistan, Lemuel Jeanpierre and Michael Bowie fared in Week 4 in the absence of starters Russell Okung, Max Unger, and Breno Giacomini.

Greg A. Bedard of TheMMQB breaks down the pivotal plays that helped the Seahawks earn a 23-20 overtime victory against the Houston Texans in Week 4.'s Kevin Seifert has notes on how each of the League's quarterbacks came out of Week 4.

You can vote for cornerback Richard Sherman's 58-yard interception return for Sunday's game-tying touchdown against the Houston Texans as the NFL's "Never Say Never" moment of the week. Sherman is up against fellow NFC West cornerback Patrick Peterson, who recorded two picks in Arizona's comeback win over Tampa Bay, and New England's Aqib Talib, who tallied an interception and four passes defensed against Atlanta. Voting is open until 12 p.m. PT on Friday, October 4.
