Seahawks mid-week injury report: Jimmy Graham in doubt for Sunday?
By Lee Vowell
Pete Carroll gave his update of the Seahawks injuries news on Wednesday. Jimmy Graham might be in doubt. But what about last week’s scratch Eddie Lacy?
For what it’s worth, the Seahawks have maintained some pretty decent health through two games. As opposed to last season, Russell Wilson isn’t gimpy. (Though the offense overall is as far as production goes.) Sure, George Fant was injured in preseason, but so far the rest of the porous offensive line has remained healthy.
Coach Carroll intimated in his press conference today that Jimmy Graham’s availability for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans might be in doubt, however. Here are more of his tidbits on who will play and who may not. (By the way, once again Walter Jones is not available to play.)
Graham suffered an ankle injury on Sunday. He also has not played well otherwise, let’s be honest. True, Seattle has always struggled with getting Graham the ball. Red zone. Mid field. Wherever. Are the Seahawks better off without Graham? Probably not.
But we 12s like to overreact, right? Last year, Graham was good. Through two games this season? Not so much. That is as much Graham’s fault – he has dropped two passes – as Seattle’s. It only takes one week to fix the Graham issue. But Carroll said on Wednesday, “He’s not going to practice today. We’ll wait a couple days here to see how he does.”
Other injury news
Paul Richardson has a dislocated finger. He still caught a touchdown pass from Wilson, though, against the 49ers with the same injury. He will play this week.
Michael Wilhoite and Terence Garvin both have a chance to play Sunday. Wilhoite played well against San Francisco. Garvin did not play.
