Curry to Play Three Quarters in Preseason Opener

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says that rookie first-round pick Aaron Curry will play three quarters vs the Chargers Saturday night:

While most of the Seattle Seahawks starters will only play a couple series of Saturday’s preseason opener at San Diego, new head coach Jim Mora said rookie linebacker Aaron Curry will likely play through three quarters as the team looks to see what he can do. The team’s first-round draft pick will have a lot on his plate, including getting a long look as a defensive end in the team’s nickel package in pass-rush situations. Mora said Curry would start at linebacker in the team’s base defense, but sounded equally intrigued by the potential as a rusher off the edge.

“We’ll play him at right end some early in the game against some of their better players and see how he does,” Mora said. “If there’s one thing I’d look for, I’d say watch Aaron Curry and see how he rushes as an end. We’re going to find out a little bit. I’m excited to see it.”
