Thursday night Seahawks

Thursday evening update on the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks' attempt to crank up their pass rush didn't get any help when LB Chad Brown was added to the injury report Thursday.
   Brown's surgically repaired right foot remains sore after his first game back from a nine-month rehabilitation. The team listed the veteran pass-rusher as probable, but Brown won't be 100 percent even if he feels good enough to start.
   "There is some rust, obviously, just from missing so much camp and so much of last season," Brown said. "Then there is the actual physical part.
   "Some of it is mental and getting over the hurdle of really wanting to push my foot to see how far I can take it."
   While Seattle was generally pleased with its defensive effort in the opener, the pass rush wasn't particularly strong. Brown, who plays right end in the nickel, struggled with the spin move that helped him collect 10 sacks during his first 10 NFL seasons.
   Brown's lone sack in the opener resulted from a busted play. LB D.D. Lewis would start if Brown gets the week off. Brown missed practice Wednesday and Thursday.
   --QB Matt Hasselbeck battled through a persistent drizzle Thursday and practice was sloppy as a result. The weather in Seattle does not resemble the 100-degree heat expected at Sun Devil Stadium on Sunday.
   --TE Ryan Hannam (knee) is practicing and wasn't listed on the injury report. Hannam's lone TD reception came at Arizona last season, but he won't play a prominent role this week.
   --LB Isaiah Kacyvenski (ankle) probably remains a week away from returning.
   --D.D. Lewis could play a more prominent role this week because starting LB Chad Brown is nursing a sore right foot. Brown has yet to practice this week and the team added him to the injury report Thursday. Brown is listed as probable.
