Just days after the Seahawks placed a rookie offensive lineman on injured reserve, it looks like they will need to place another of their 2011 draft choices on injured reserve

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, first-round pick OT James Carpenter tore an ACL in practice on Wednesday, ending his season. The team has made no official announcement, but is expected Carpenter will be placed on I.R. before Sunday's game against the Rams so the team can acquire another lineman.

Third-round pick John Moffitt, the team's starting right guard, was lost for the season on Monday because of a knee injury.

The way we see it

After appearing to make great progress in the past two games with excellent run blocking against two of the best run defenses in the league (Cowboys and Ravens), the Seahawks' offensive line has been dealt a big blow on the right side. Short of bringing in outside reinforcements, the most likely candidates to replace Carpenter are Lemuel Jeanpierre and ex-Packer Breno Giacomini.

Jeanpierre did a nice job at right guard replacing the injured Moffitt last Sunday. But team insiders told PFW on Wednesday that ex-Raider Paul McQuistan was expected to become the starting right guard the rest of the season because of his edge over Jeanpierre in experience and an understanding of offensive line coach Tom Cable's zone system.
