    Backup quarterback Matt Flynn isn't injured per se, but the team has been cautious about his workload and while he is available and ready to play. It's understandable if you are confused after some conflicting reports, but coach Pete Carroll was asked a series of questions about both quarterbacks in an attempt to flesh out the situation under center for Seattle.

    Flynn's workload has been monitored after he suffered from a sore elbow back in August, which prevented him from playing in the team's third exhibition game.

    "Matt hasn't had a lot of work," Carroll said. "We've hoped that it would help the elbow situation. He has never thrown a lot in any of the practices. He's just, he's done the things we've asked him to do. We've counted on him to play in every game. We haven't had a third quarterback on the roster because Matt can play, but we have had a pitch count for him in a sense and made sure that we didn't work him past where we thought it was the right way to do it."

    Is Flynn's status a determining factor in whether Carroll could even consider making a change at quarterback?

    Carroll said: " No, Matt's ready to play. Matt's ready to play. We just don't know what's going to happen when he gets a lot of work. He might be all right, we don't know that, but we have not taken him there yet. But no, he's ready to play in every game and he's ready to go in the very next play if we need him. So the competition goes on in my mind as it does in every position on our football team. Our guys continue to compete, but he has not had the opportunity because we give the starter all the reps, and with a young guy, first time, we're giving him every single snap we can. That's how this has gone throughout."
