SEAHAWKS -- Seahawks starting defensive tackle Brandon Mebane will be "out for a while" with a "legit" hamstring strain, coach Pete Carroll said at a press conference Monday.

Mebane strained his hamstring in Sunday's 38-17 win over the New York Giants.

The powerhouse tackle has 20 tackles and one sack in nine games with the Seahawks this season.

Carroll said other Seahawks starters Kam Chancellor and Malcom Smith will practice this week.
