Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson injured his ankle in Friday's preseason game. Coach Pete Carroll told the media after the game that Jackson's injury is a sprain, not a break. He's expected to miss two weeks. "I don't know. We'll see. I don't know about that yet," Carroll said of the backup quarterback situation, per ESPN. "We'll have to see how it looks tomorrow. The ankle did not swell up much, so we'll see what that means."
The Seahawks announced that backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has signed his contract with the organization. Jackson will once again back up Russell Wilson. In his second stint with Seattle, Jackson will enter his fourth season with the team. Over the past nine years, Jackson has totaled 7,226 yards, 39 touchdowns and 35 interceptions with the Vikings, Seahawks and Bills.
The Seahawks have reached an agreement with quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, a source has told Fox Sports. Jackson has backed up starter Russell Wilson over the last two years in his second stint with Seattle. He has played in just four games during the latest stint.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Seattle is trying to re-sign backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, according to the Everett Herald. Jackson has spent the previous two seasons backing up Russell Wilson at the position. After five seasons with the Vikings, Jackson came to Seattle and ended up starting 14 games in 2011. He went to Buffalo in 2012 before coming back to the Seahawks in 2013.
Seahawks backup QB Tarvaris Jackson is meeting with the Dolphins Thursday, according to the Palm Beach Post. The return of Dolphins' backup Matt Moore remains in question. After breaking into the NFL in 2006 with the Vikings, Jackson's best season was 2011 when he started 15 games for the Seahawks and threw for 14 touchdowns and 3,091 yards.
