 Koren Robinson's return to the Seahawks will begin immediately as both a wide receiver and a kick returner.
Seattle coach Mike Holmgren said Wednesday the team's former No. 1 draft choice, reacquired on Tuesday, will play Sunday against St. Louis, perhaps in both roles.
Robinson hasn't played since January's NFC championship game for the Green Bay Packers. He was out of football at home in North Carolina until the Seahawks gave him a one-year contract to help offset injuries to six wide receivers.
Holmgren said Keary Colbert will see plenty of playing time against the Rams at flanker. Seattle traded a draft pick to Denver for Colbert. The deal became official Wednesday.
All-Pro left tackle Walter Jones will miss practices this week with a lower back and hip injury. Holmgren said Jones will play Sunday.
Jaguars
Veteran guard Chris Naeole pulled up the bottom of his shorts, revealing an 8-inch scar stretching down his left knee. It's a constant reminder of the worst injury of his 12-year career and provides some extra motivation in his comeback attempt.
his quadriceps tendon off the bone last November and was released four months later, re-signed with the Jaguars in hopes of bolstering an injury-riddled offensive line that is without three starters.
``I know some people probably thought, 'He's done. He ain't coming back,''' said Naeole, who signed a one-year deal worth the veterans' minimum. ``But that's just a little more ammunition to get back and get going.''
The Jaguars (0-2) could use the help. After losing both starting guards in the opener at Tennessee, they played with three backups along the line against Buffalo and struggled again to get much going on offense.
David Garrard was sacked twice, Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew combined for 66 yards rushing and Jacksonville lost its home opener 20-16.
Coach Jack Del Rio insisted Wednesday that the line played well. Maybe so, but the results clearly weren't what the Jaguars, who lead the league in rushing over the last 34 games, have grown accustomed to in recent years.
Maybe Naeole can make a difference.
``He's a good face to see, one of our best linemen when he was here,'' Garrard said. ``If he can get back to 90 or any kind of percent like that, it's going to be a great addition for us and a big help.''
Del Rio said Naeole won't play Sunday at Indianapolis.
Giants
average. Brandon Jacobs has been the workhorse with 36 carries for 209 yards, while Derrick Ward and Ahmad Bradshaw are not giving opposing defenses any time to rest when they get the call.
Ward has gained 97 yards on 17 carries and Bradshaw, who didn't get any work in the opener against Washington, was dazzling in limited action last week against St. Louis. He rushed five times for 52 yards and a touchdown, and caught a pass for 18 yards and another score.
Sitting on the bench talking to Ward, defensive end Justin Tuck watched the performance and dubbed the trio ``Earth, Wind and Fire.''
The 270-pound Jacobs is Earth. Ward is Wind. Bradshaw is Fire.
``We are blessed as an organization to have three backs who can come in and play and do whatever you ask them to do,'' said Jacobs, who is in the final year of a contract. ``You don't have defensive linemen that can come in like that in the fourth quarter. Nine times out of 10, the guy who is in there in the fourth quarter is the guy who started, and he's getting very tired.''
