Seattle Seahawks Have Mounting Injury Concerns

After a game in which the starter played very little, the Seahawks are surprisingly banged up as the limp toward their matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

At CB, the Seahawks are already without veteran Marcus Trufant who remains out with a fairly serous hamstring injury. Now, new starter Walter Thurmond to the concerns. Turmond was limited in practice on Wednesday with a hamstring injury, and then did not practice at all on Thursday. If both are out, and with Brandon Browner suspended, the Seahawks will be relying on Jeremy Lane to at CB on Sunday.

The news is only slightly better at WR. Sydney Rice has not practiced all week because of a foot injury. He was reportedly wearing a walking boot at Wednesday’s practice, though it was gone for Thursday’s workout. One of the players who would be expected to play in Rice’s absence is Charly Martin, who is also injured with a calf problem. It is now highly possible that the Seahawks go into Sunday’s game with just 3 healthy receivers.

DE Re Bryant and SS Kam Chancellor have both sat out of practice all week as well, while Marshawn Lynch was limited. All three are expected to play on Sunday.

    All the injuries have mounted up quietly but could seriously jeopardize any post-season options for Seattle. This is a problem that really needs to be solved. WRs, LBs, and O-line all have pathetic health records.
