James Carpenter yet to be cleared from concussion

RENTON -- All of Seattle's players returned Monday after a week off, but not all of them were back on the practice field.

At least not yet.

Offensive lineman James Carpenter had not yet been cleared to resume practicing after suffering what was diagnosed as a concussion more than two weeks ago.

"He had a couple of tests he was doing this afternoon," coach Pete Carroll said. "We'll find out Wednesday if he's clear to go."

Carpenter has missed the past two games after being diagnosed with a head injury. John Moffitt has started at left guard in his place.

He was the only player absent from Monday's workout as linebacker K.J. Wright and defensive linemen Clinton McDonald and Greg Scruggs were back after missing Seattle's last game.

Carroll was asked if he was optimistic Carpenter would be cleared to resume playing.

"Let's wait and find out," Carroll said. "I hope so. He's had a lot of time to break. We just want to make sure we had everything squared away. We'll see what happens."
