Seahawks will promote QB Daniels to replace Richardson

The Seattle Seahawks will promote versatile quarterback B.J. Daniels to take the roster spot of injured wide receiver Paul Richardson, coach Pete Carroll said Monday.

Carroll also indicated center Max Unger and cornerback Byron Maxwell are likely to play against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

Unger, who missed six games with a high ankle sprain, had the ankle rolled up on late in the Seahawks’ 31-17 win over the Carolina Panthers on Saturday night. Unger reportedly was concerned he had reinjured the ankle, but Carroll said the former Pro Bowl center “looks good” for the NFC title game.

Maxwell, a starting corner, played in just four special-teams plays and did not play on defense because he was suffering from shortness of breath after being sick all week. Carroll said Monday that Maxwell “feels fine” now.

Richardson suffered a torn ACL in the third quarter against Carolina and is done for the season, so Carroll decided to reward Daniels, who has been on the practice squad all season.

“He’s been a guy that has been impressive to us all year long,” Carroll said. “It’s a classic opportunity to reward a guy (who has) just been competing his butt off. He’s going to help us in a number of spots. Of course, he’s a third quarterback, but we’ll see this week how he works to fit in on special teams. He’s a backup returner for us. He can play running back and receiver as well. He’s been doing that all year, so he’s a very versatile guy for us to bring to life right now.”

Carroll did not say who would replace Richardson as the kickoff returner. Doug Baldwin and Christine Michael have done it in the past.

At receiver, Kevin Norwood and Chris Matthews appear likely to see time in Richardson’s place.
