    Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Doubtful to play Sunday

    Irvin (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports. Recovering from a sprained MCL, Irvin will miss a second straight game. Mike Morgan should be a capable replacement, and the Seahawks still have a loaded front seven.

    Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Inactive Week 11

    Irvin (knee) is inactive Sunday against the 49ers. Irvin (knee) was listed as out earlier in the week, so this news comes as no surprise. Expect both Mike Morgan and Kevin Pierre-Louis to take over duties at strong side linebacker in Irvin's absence. The Seattle defense should be just fine without him at home against the 49ers offense.

    Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Likely sitting out Sunday

    Irvin will likely sit out Sunday versus the 49ers due to a sprained MCL, the Seahawks' official site reports. "He's got a sore knee and he's going to miss this week unless something miraculous happens," said head coach Pete Carroll. "Hopefully we can contain it to a two-week thing if that's the case." Considering the tentative timeline set forth by Carroll, Irvin will likely sit out at least the next two Sundays. In the meantime, Mike Morgan will slot in at strong-side linebacker, while Frank Clark and Cassius Marsh will split Irvin's nickel snaps at defensive end.

    Seahawks LB Bruce Irvin: 'I would love to be in Seattle'

    Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin, who in May said that he was going to play for the Falcons after his contract runs out, told during a football camp Saturday that he "would love to be in Seattle." The Seahawks did not pick up Irwin's option, preferring to wait until after the upcoming season to discuss a new deal, which did not sit well with the linebacker. However, he appeared to soften his stance when asked about his football future. "I have one year left. I would love to be in Seattle. That was the team that gave me a chance when nobody else did," Irvin said. "A lot of people told me I wasn't a first-round pick, but Pete (Carroll) and (general manager) John Schneider took a chance on me, so like I said I would love to be there, but I'm just going to go out here, I've been working my butt off, I'm going to go out here and have the biggest year of my career next year." It behooves Irwin to play at a high level, since he would likely command a big payday on the open market as a free agent.

The Seahawks would've owed Irvin $7.8 million had they picked up the option. Despite not picking up the option, coach Pete Carroll had previously said Irvin is in the team's long-term plans. "If we pick up Bruce's option it's a great thing, if we don't pick up Bruce's option it only means we aren't picking it up... We want him to be here for a long time," Carroll said.
