RENTON - The Seattle Seahawks managed to accomplish just about everything they wanted to in Sunday's 45-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

They found some rhythm in the passing game. DE Chris Clemons and CB Brandon Browner played their first snaps of the year. The pass rush is finally getting to full strength. Head coach Pete Carroll was able to pull the starters and get some valuable playing time for the reserve and they were able to escape without any serious injuries.

DE Red Bryant left Sunday's victory with back spasms and WR Jermaine Kearse suffered an ankle sprain. However, both appear to be fairly minor issues.

Carroll expects Bryant will be fine in a few days.

"He’s got a sore back today and kind of stiff and all that," Carroll said. "He got kind of in an awkward position and just tweaked it. So he’s got muscle spasms and usually those can get taken care of in about three or four days. So he should be alright."

Carroll said Kearse was already out of a walking boot by the time he left the stadium on Sunday and was moving around well Monday.

T Breno Giacomini came out of the game Sunday and was replaced by T Michael Bowie at right tackle. Carroll said his knee was sore and they felt he needed to come out at that point, though they wanted to see Bowie and T Alvin Bailey play as well.

C Max Unger also had a sore arm that was bothering him during the game Sunday but he continued to play.

Carroll said that LB Malcolm Smith is also expected to be back this week.
