Seahawks will play without ex-Hephzibah star James Carpenter



The Seattle Seahawks will be without guard James Carpenter against the New York Jets on Sunday.

The former Hephzibah High School star has yet to be cleared to return to practice after suffering a concussion.

Carpenter had concussion symptoms surface late last week before being ruled out against the Vikings.

John Moffitt will start at left guard in place of Carpenter.

Linebacker K.J Wright is also out with a concussion.

Wright sustained a concussion on the opening drive against the Minnesota Vikings last week.

Mike Morgan will make his first career start in place of Wright.


TITANS: Jake Locker will start Sunday against the Miami Dolphins – the young quarterback’s first game in more than a month.

Locker separated his left, non-throwing shoulder for the second time in four games Sept. 30 against Houston. The second-year player was cleared for contact earlier in the week and practiced the past three days with the first-team offense.


COWBOYS: Running back DeMarco Murray will miss his fourth consecutive game with a sprained right foot.

Center Phil Costa (ankle) and defensive tackle Sean Lissemore (ankle) will also miss another game.


VIKINGS: Receiver Percy Harvin is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against Detroit with a sprained left ankle.


TEXANS: Coach Gary Kubiak said tight end Owen Daniels was “very limited’ in practice with a back injury on Friday and could miss Sunday’s game in Chicago.


PATRIOTS: Rookie running back Brandon Bolden was suspended without pay for four games Friday for violating the league’s policy on performing enhancing substances.

The undrafted free agent out of Mississippi has rushed for 234 yards and two touchdowns in six games this season but missed the past two games with a knee injury.

FINED: The NFL levied $50,000 in fines to the Pittsburgh Steelers and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders for faking an injury during an Oct. 21 game in Cincinnati.
