When the Seattle Seahawks host the Minnesota Vikings this Saturday, QB Tarvaris Jackson will get the start against his former team.
“He’s going to play through the first half (against Minnesota) and get our first group out there, with some substitutions, but those guys will play,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday. “Hopefully it’ll work out in the first half and if we can get that done we’ll feel like we’ve accomplished something. Last week was just, ‘Get them out there’ and then ‘Get them out of there’, and ‘Get them on the field’ and then ‘Get them out’. There just wasn’t enough time for any extended duty, but now we need to go for it and we have to jump ahead. We have to catch up a little bit here.”
Jackson, who was recently named starter for the season by Carroll, was selected in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Vikings.
