Seattle Seahawks Injury Report: Week 7 SEA vs SF


The Seattle Seahawks injury report released on Tuesday afternoon in preparation for Thursday Night Football.

Looking at the report on Monday, a chill went down the spine of many fans. The list was long. One player was out, 8 players didn’t practice, 5 players were limited. Ouch.

Tuesday’s report brought better news. Center Patrick Lewis (ankle), defensive tackle Jordan Hill (Quadriceps), linebacker Nick Moody (ankle), and defensive end Demarcus Dobbs (shoulder) didn’t practice, nor did cornerback Richard Sherman. Sherman had been limited on Monday with a ankle injury. One has to wonder if the powers at be are just being caucious. Sherman didn’t mention not playing in his press conference today.

Tackle Garry Gilliam (ankle) was the only player limited today, a step up from Monday.

All other players that had been on the report Monday, including Marcus Burley, Cliff Avril, Frank Clark, Justin Britt, Tyler Lockett, Kam Chancellor, Bobby Wagner, Marshawn Lynch, and Tye Smith, were listed as full practice.

Along with this week’s injuries, there were a few transactions today. Seattle signed center Lemuel Jeanpierre to a one year deal. LJP was prior to the start of the season. He has played both center and guard for Seattle over the last few years, starting at center three times last season when former Seahawks center Max Unger was out with injury. He played well when called on and should be a great addition to the offensive line.

Fullback Derrick Coleman was also activated from the suspended list today. Coleman was placed on that list after a car accident last week, but has been cleared by team doctors to play.

Brock Coyle, a middle linebacker and special teams player, was placed on injured reserve/designated to return. Coyle has been fighting a knee injury and it looks as though it is bad enough to sideline him for the next eight weeks. He will be able to start practicing with the team in six weeks.

The Seahawks released cornerback Crezdon Butler. Butler was brought in due to Seattle being thin at corner, but with the return of Tye Smith, he was no longer needed.
