Fast facts: 49ers visit Seahawks looking for first win there since 2011

Seattle Seahawks expect RB Thomas Rawls to bring 'violence' in his return

Running backs Thomas Rawls still coming off of injury and Eddie Lacy are on the field during warmups before the Seahawks take on the Green Bay Packers Sunday

Carroll certainly didn't expect that sharing those kinds of details could come back to have an adverse effect someday - except when Lynch took the job as the general manager of Seattle's division rival, the San Francisco 49ers. By 20 points. The 49ers lost 23-3 to the Carolina Panthers.

The Seattle Seahawks also are looking for their first victory after losing to the Green Bay Packers, 17-9. Game kicks off on Sunday at 1:25 p.m. PT. Hear Steve's one-on-one interview with defensive end Cliff Avril, his "710 with 710" conversation with KIRO radio's Mike Salk and Danny O'Neill and more.

Shaquill Griffin breaks up a pass intended for Green Bay's Davante Adams during the first half Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017, in Green Bay, Wisconsin. While both corners proved to be up to the challenge, each will likely be counted on to play large roles again against the 49ers.

Sherman, in fact, has never missed a game since coming to Seattle in 2011 and appears ready to go for Sunday after taking part in all of Friday's practice after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday with a hamstring injury. And with Seattle's offensive line having its hands full as is, that would present another challenge.

Excellent safety play has always been a staple of Pete Carroll defenses, and this Sunday will be no different. He looks like he can play.

The Seahawks rookie led the rushing attack Week 1, but the return of stater Thomas Rawls puts a damper on his fantasy outlook.

Eddie Lacy started last week but had 3 yards on five carries while rookie Chris Carson came on to gain 39 on six carries, including 30 on one play.

Lights still out for 6.1 million USA customers after Irma-utilities
The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office in Georgia said it was investigating a woman who was killed when a tree fell on her vehicle. About 46,000 of Georgia Power's customers still didn't have power Friday, according to the utility's state-wide outage map .

Recent trade acquisition from New England, Justin Coleman, also looked good in the nickel last game.

"He's done just really well".

"You couldn't ask for a guy's attitude to be more on point to heal himself". Graham was a flop in Week 1 against the Packers with only eight yards on his seven targets.

Those series were emblematic of what was a miserable day on third down as the Seahawks converted just three of 12.

"He did well - practiced the whole practice today", Carroll said after practice Friday. "There was a couple of throws that he had chances, but they got broken up". If they do not, even the lowly 49ers have a chance against Seattle. Foster was a unanimous All-American selection past year at the University of Alabama and the 2016 Butkus Award victor as the best collegiate linebacker, and the 49ers were thrilled to get him in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Seahawks could not get any momentum rolling in their opener last week, with Russell Wilson struggling behind an terrible offensive line that seems to have carried over from 2016, and the defense unable to avoid mistakes or stop Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense.

LANE NOT FINED FOR EJECTION: As the fines from last weekend's National Football League games began to be revealed Friday, one name was missing - Seattle cornerback Jeremy Lane.
