Our optimistic forecast for the Seahawks was based in part on a return to health for the offensive line. Then guard Mike Wahle retired after failing to recover from offseason shoulder surgery. Then tackle Walter Jones underwent another round of arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Though the surgery was deemed successful, Jones will likely miss the first two weeks of the regular season. (Right tackle Sean Locklear moved to left tackle in Jones' place in Saturday night's exhibition game against Denver, and gave up two sacks and a false start in one half.) Now comes word that center Chris Spencer "hurt his left quadriceps muscle" against Denver and will be out indefinitely, pending an MRI.
