PermalinkFriday practice -- Holmgren says Branch will start
Posted by Eric Williams @ 11:52:04 am
The Seattle Seahawks had an hour-long walk through today, and Coach Mike Holmgren talked to reporters afterwards.
Here are some tidbits.
Holmgren said Deion Branch will start on Sunday at flanker. Holmgren did not want to put a number on how many snaps Branch will see, but expect to see Branch out on the field for at least half of the snaps.
Holmgren said the same thing goes for Bobby Engram. Expect to see Engram in the slot this week, and to probably play the same amount as Branch.
Holmgren said either Billy McMullen or Keary Colbert will start at split end.
McMullen has played well so far, but Holmgren said he'd likes what Colbert brings and wants to get him on the field as well. Colbert had been playing flanker, but has had to learn both positions in a short amount of time.
