Carroll also acknowledged that Chris Clemons has been making strides, according to SeattlePI.com. The defensive end is practicing again this week after offseason surgery to repair a torn ACL that was suffered in the playoffs. We anticipate that Clemons will appear as questionable on Wednesday's injury report, but Seattle went out of its way to list him as a starter on the depth chart.
We won't see the Seahawks' defense at full power until Avril and Clemons suit up, and Bruce Irvin returns from his four-game suspension. With that trio back in the mix, Seattle will ride with the nastiest gang of pass rushers west of Detroit.
