Seahawks' rookie LB Shaquem Griffin played 41 of 74 defensive snaps while LB Austin Calitro played the remaining 33 in their Week 1 matchup against the Denver Broncos. Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll suggested Monday that Griffin could lose snaps to Calitro in Week 2 unless he steps up his game: "We'll find out during the week how the guys play and how they do and how practice goes, and we'll see what we're going to do about play time."
"Austin did pretty well and Griff, he had some problems on some stuff," Carroll said. "There were some things that happened to him that wasn't quite as clean as we would have liked. He got fooled on a couple things[.]" Griffin was already on shaky ground, given that he's merely filling in for injured Seahawks' LB K.J. Wright, but after Carroll's comments he's likely better left on your bench.
