Seahawks injury update for Sunday’s game versus the 49ers
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks released their mid-week injury report on Wednesday. There were a few surprises on the list as far as players sitting out practice. Others were full participants. Here is a look.
So Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright has not missed a game since 2013. He played every defensive snap for Seattle on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Which, if you are a 12, felt like 6,383 snaps. But on Wednesday the Seahawks revealed that Wright is dealing with an ankle issue. He did not practice on Wednesday. This could simply mean Seattle was holding him out as a precaution. Or that Wright is really hurt. Who knows? The Seahawks won’t really say.
Another player who was held out of practice on Wednesday was Richard Sherman. The cornerback has made 91 straight starts for Seattle. This is the Seahawks longest current streak. But Sherman was also listed as limited last Friday, too. He still played every snap against the Packers. My feeling is that Sherman is fine, though. Seattle keeping him out of practice means little to nothing. Fingers crossed.
Seattle said that cornerback Shaquill Griffin is dealing with a concussion. This sounds dreadful, of course. Head injuries are nothing to mess around with. We should know more about this closer to game time.
Two players who did not play in the Green Bay game, Thomas Rawls and Delano Hill, were full-go in practice Wednesday, though. Rawls may very well start if he is finally fully healthy. While Hill may be less important, he will still be counted on to get some snaps. It would be interesting to see what the rookie can do in his first game.
