With only two preseason games to go, several Seahawks are trying to make the roster. Several players assumed to make the team will be missing against the Chiefs, however. Here is an updated list of who might not play Friday for Seattle.

We already know that running backs C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls will not play versus the Chiefs. Both have been injury-prone in their short careers so it’s probably best they sit out. Maybe all the starters should. Save them for the regular season, right?

Besides Rawls and Prosise, Tyler Lockett is not expected to play either. Lockett is still getting back from breaking his leg late in 2016, so resting him is more important than playing him right now.

DeAndre Elliott, may be in a fight to actually make the roster, has a concussion and may not play. This means we will see a lot more of Shaquill Griffin. Griffin needs the reps anyway, so that’s good. Tramaine Brock is still finding his way in the secondary. Expect him to play a bunch too.

Linebacker Michael Wilhoite has a lower leg problem. Most likely, he will sit out to rest. He seems almost a lock to make the roster at this point anyway.

Backup center Joey Hunt has something going on with his ankle and will not play. Guess who will take his place for center reps? That would be Ethan Pocic. Pocic is the guy 12s really want to see on the outside. I would prefer to see him get snaps at tackle or guard instead of center. But if Hunt doesn’t make the team, Pocic is the backup center. He needs the practice.

One player who will be involved is Paul Richardson. After a shoulder injury scare in preseason week one, it’s good to see him back so soon. Hopefully he will finally stay healthy.
