Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, Oct. 13 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Luke Kuechly Back in Action
Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly, who led the NFL in tackles last year, returned to practice with a helmet and full pads on Tuesday, his first practice since early September.
Kuechly, the 2012 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year, had missed the team's previous three games with a concussion he suffered in the regular season opener at Jacksonville. In less than two quarters of play against the Jaguars before the injury, Kuechly recorded seven tackles and a sack, which is the type of production the Panthers hope he'll bring in Week 6 against the Seahawks if he is cleared to play.
Panthers head coach Ron Rivera has said even if Kuechly goes against Seattle, he may not play 100 percent of the snaps, so Kuechly's status will be one to watch throughout the week leading up to Sunday's matchup at CenturyLink Field. Regardless of how much he plays this week, Kuechly's return to practice bodes well for the Panthers (4-0) and their No. 10-ranked defense as they try to keep pace with the Atlanta Falcons (5-0) in the NFC South, a division Carolina has won the past two years.
