Alex Mack Done for Season, Ryan Seymour Called Up


Alex Mack is officially done for the season, likely meaning there was ligament damage when he went in for his procedure. Ryan Seymour has been called up from the practice squad to replace him, says ESPN’s Pat McManamon:

There was faint hope that Mack would be able to come back near the end of the season, or playoffs (still weird to think about that as possibility). While his return may have seemed like a positive thing the offensive line’s ability to gel together is most important. By that point in time the current line would have had at least eight games together. Mack returning could have impacted that.

Seymour was picked up off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers at cut down time. Seymour has the ability to swing from guard to tackle and will replace Paul McQuistan‘s role as the backup guard. McQuistan, a starter part-time with the Seahawks last year, takes over at right guard with John Greco moving over to center.

The Zone Blocking Scheme has some plug and play tendencies. Mark Schlereth, who ran the ZBS in Denver, stated on Mike and Mike in the Morning that the sum of the parts was far more important than the individual talent. Mack will be missed but the line’s ability to come together and work together will be huge. Against the Steelers they did just fine.
