The Seattle Seahawks avoid any major injuries in Week 2 and look solid going into Week 3.
With the third week of the regular season upon us, the Seattle Seahawks have finally reached their home opener. As of the Thursday report, it looks as though all starters will be available for the game against the Chicago Bears.

The biggest news this week was the return of Kam Chancellor from his “contract injury”. It seems there are no lingering issues, and seems to have healed (for lack of a better term) nicely.
He returned to practice in what looks to be great shape. However due to the long absence, the team could ease him back into game play. Most expect him to play about 60% of snaps on Sunday, yet that could change depending on his conditioning.
The only surprise on the Wednesday injury report was that Marshawn Lynch was listed with an actual injury. We are all used to Wednesday being his normal day off, however this day he was listed with a calf problem. He was limited in practice on Thursday, so we will have to wait and see what Friday brings.
Outside linebacker Mike Morgan is still battling a hamstring injury, yet he was listed as limited practice on Wednesday and full practice on Thursday. This is a huge step up for him from last week and we can hope to see him on the field soon.
Linebacker Bobby Wagner was again on this week’s report with an ankle injury. It looks as he is taking it easy part of the week, but was listed as full practice on Thursday.

Cornerback Tharold Simon lingering toe injury kept him out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, as did a hip injury for safety Steven Terrell.
Cary Williams, the newest member of the Legion of Boom was listed on Wednesday and Thursday with a thigh injury, however he was full practice both days so there doesn’t seem to be much of an issue.
Back up quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and defensive end Michael Bennett popped up on Thursday’s report. Jackson was limited in practice with an ankle injury, and Bennett didn’t practice at all with a toe injury.
So far the Seahawks have stayed relatively healthy and 12s are keeping their fingers crossed that this trend continues.
