Seahawks Face Raiders in Final Preseason Matchup
The Seattle Seahawks' final preseason game will showcase players who are fighting for a spot on team's final 53-player roster.
"On the bubble" players will see quite a bit of action tonight as the Seahawks' coaching staff will be making their final evaluations. Those players will be the "twos, threes and fours" as the regular starters will only see action in the first quarter. The reserves will be showing what they can do, hoping to make the Seahawks' final roster, or attract enough attention tonight to land on another team's roster or practice squad.
Quarterback Terrell Pryor will see extensive playing time against the Raiders, his former team.
Running back Christine Michael will not play tonight after tweaking a hamstring in practice this week. The team re-signed Demetrius Bronson, who was released earlier this week, to provide another back on the roster.
Wide receiver Bryan Walters, who did not play last week against Chicago due to injured ribs, will be available in Oakland for punt and kickoff return duty.
For the Raiders, quarterback Matt Schaub is out with an injured elbow. Rookie Derek Carr will get the start in his place.
The broadcast begins at 5 p.m., with kickoff at 7 p.m. on AM 1280 and FM 99.3 Newstalk KIT.
