RENTON, Wash. (AP) Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wouldn't give specifics but he said his starters would play some in Thursday night's preseason opener against Denver.

Carroll said after a walkthrough practice Wednesday that he wants his starters to get a little time but the bulk of the game will be played by younger players. Carroll specifically said rookie linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (oblique) will not play.

Guard James Carpenter (calf) and backup quarterback B.J. Daniels (groin) will both dress but it's unknown if they'll play.

Second-round pick Paul Richardson (shoulder) should be available to play.

Carroll also said injured wide receiver Kevin Norwood had a bone spur removed from his foot.
