Head coach Pete Carroll has ruled out tight end Zach Miller for the Seahawks third preseason game.

Tight end Zach Miller (foot) has been ruled out by head coach Pete Carroll for the team's Friday night exhibition game at the home of the Green Bay Packers. Carroll made the announcement Monday morning with "Brock and Danny" on the Seahawks flagship station 710 AM ESPN Seattle.

Miller, who came off the Seahawks physically unable to perform (PUP) list last Friday, is expected to start working his way back onto the practice field this week. Carroll has expressed the team will be very cautious in how fast they bring back Miller, the team's incumbent starter who hauled in 38 catches for 396 yards and three scores a season ago.

Second-year tight end Sean McGrath and rookie Luke Willson have seen action with the No. 1 offense in Miller's absence.
