Seattle Seahawks DE Cliff Avril (hamstring) could return in Week 2, according to head coach Pete Carroll. 'We're planning on him being part of it this week unless he has some kind of setback,' Carroll said. 'That'd be a nice little boost to get him back in the game.'
Huddle Up: The Seahawks only had one sack/QB hit in the Week 1 win over the Panthers, and having Avril available for Sunday night's showdown against the Niners would be huge for what is expected to be one of fantasy's top defenses.

Seattle Seahawks DE Cliff Avril (hamstring) may be a question mark for practice Wednesday, Sept. 2, but he is making progress. 'He ran pretty well today. I'm anxious to see what happens later in the week,' head coach Pete Carroll said. 'I watched those guys work out today and he was moving better than I would have thought and the trainers. We'll see what happens. We'll see how he takes to this workout today and get another day off and see what happens. I don't know what that tells us but it's good news.'
Huddle Up: Seattle's other big offseason addition, WR Percy Harvin already will be shelved for most of the season after undergoing hip surgery, but Seahawk fans and certain IDP fantasy owners are anxious for the ex-Lion Avril to get on the field.
