Seattle Seahawks injury report – Week 17 SEA v ARI


The Seattle Seahawks will be missing a large number of key players in their regular season finale against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. 

The Seattle Seahawks are still missing superstar running, back Marshawn Lynch, along with a few other key players going into their season finale.

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the Seahawks running game. First they lose Lynch for an undisclosed amount of time due to an abdominal surgery, then they lose break out rookie Thomas Rawls for the season to a broken ankle.

Many were hoping Lynch would return for the divisional game against the NFC West champs Arizona Cardinals, but it looks like fans will have to wait for the playoffs for Beastmode to return.

Starting left tackle Russell Okung did not practice today after being limited yesterday. Head coach Pete Carroll was initially optimistic about Okung’s chances of playing but now we’ll have to wait to see if he’ll play.

Tight end Luke Willson and offensive tackle JR Sweezy are both under concussion protocol and did not practice. The possibility of both Okung and Sweezy being out on Sunday would be a huge blow to an offensive line that was just finding its rhythm.

Defensive tackle Jordan Hill was limited in practice today. This is a good sign as Hill has missed the last few games with a toe injury.

Defensive end Michael Bennett was limited today after having a non-surgical procedure on his toe.

Most encouraging was strong safety Kam Chancellor. Chancellor has a pelvic injury he has been fighting through that made him miss last week’s game against the Rams. He didn’t practice Wednesday but was limited today. It is a good sign for fans, and the Legion of Boom.

I believe this is the most beat up the Seahawks have been all year, yet compared to other teams, they are still in relatively good shape. It’s not ideal, but it could be worse. Lets hope this last game of the regular season doesn’t bring any more injuries to the team.
