There's plenty to be sorted out roster-wise before Russell Wilson makes his much-anticipated return to Lumen Field on Monday Night Football. The Seahawks don't know whether Drew Lock or Geno Smith will be their starter, and based on Pete Carroll's comments about how they're in "good shape" at quarterback, it sounds like they're content letting their current options battle it out for now.
The other big question is in Seattle's backfield, with no word yet on whether Chris Carson will return from neck surgery.
QUARTERBACK (2): Geno Smith, Drew Lock
Some inside the Virginia Mason Athletic Center believe Lock's talent will win out, but Smith is still in the pole position, having taken the first-team reps during OTAs and minicamp. Carroll will weigh preseason games heavily when determining the winner, as he did 10 years ago when Wilson beat out Matt Flynn. The Seahawks have typically carried only two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster, but they might keep a third now that they no longer have a starter as durable as Wilson was for most of the past decade. Jacob Eason is currently the No. 3.
