49ers vs. Seahawks, Sunday


Carroll didn't know then, nearly no one did, that Lynch was about to become the new, first-time general manager of the San Francisco 49ers - the Seahawks' opponent Sunday in their 2017 home opener. The first two players were full participants on Thursday in practice, which bodes well for their availability on Sunday in Seattle.

"He did well today", Carroll told reporters after practice, per ESPN.

This game looks like it'll be an ugly one, so we may see another late game take a turn early on and turn into a blowout if the Seahawks perform as everyone expects them to.

Sherman hasn't missed a game since his rookie season in 2011, a streak he's reminded his coach of this week.

The Wilson-led Seahawks looked rather pedestrian in a 17-9 loss to Green Bay last Sunday. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Sherman was dealing with the injury during the game. Foster was a unanimous All-American selection a year ago at the University of Alabama and the 2016 Butkus Award victor as the best collegiate linebacker, and the 49ers were thrilled to get him in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Seattle comes home 0-1 after a disappointing loss in Green Bay.

Running back Thomas Rawls is set to make his season debut after missing the team's opener in Green Bay with a high ankle sprain sustained during the preseason. It's possible that LB Michael Wilhoite, a former 49er who is recovering from a calf injury that kept him sidelined in Green Bay, could start in Garvin's place.

"Mike got off to a great start with us and then a couple of different things kept him away for some time", Carroll said. The last meeting, in Week 17 of last season, was the only Seattle victory over the stretch decided by fewer than 10 points. "Very smart player, very savvy guy and he knows what he is doing". However, against this Seahawks defense, there is a legitimate chance that the 49ers play their first two games without scoring a touchdown. "We'll see how this works out".

Lane was ejected from last Sunday's game against Green Bay with officials saying he threw a punch at Green Bay receiver Davante Adams, a play that could have also been subject to a fine from the National Football League (here's the full list of offenses that can draw a fine).

"No. I had no inkling at all", Carroll said this week. "He called me first, I should say", Richardson said.

"I think you always have to be careful with a hamstring".

Asked if their pregame conversations came to his mind when Lynch got the 49ers' job this past winter, Carroll said, "Yes, it did". "You can try, but I'm not going to go any farther than that, OK?"
