The Seahawks gave their final injury update for who’s in and who’s out in Sunday’s game. The Texans will also be missing key players, though. Here’s who is playing for Seattle.

Justin Britt

Seahawks center Britt sprained his ankle against the New York Giants but finished the game. Sometimes with these types of injuries, it is easier to play through them initially. Britt did miss two practices this week but was able to play on Friday. Coach Pete Carroll said, “He made it through the practice. We’re listing him as questionable just to see what happens (Saturday), but he did well today.”

Britt has been the Seahawks’ most reliable offensive lineman again this year. He would be missed if he can’t go. Or if he cannot get enough push with his ankle. Ethan Pocic would most likely start in Britt’s place, meaning Mark Glowinski would start at left guard.

Jeremy Lane

Lane has dealt with injury all season, it seems. Not only has he missed the last two games with a groin injury, the cornerback jammed two of his fingers this week in practice. Lane is listed as questionable, but Carroll intimated that he could play Sunday.

C.J. Prosise

The running is forever and always hurt. The latest of his maladies involves an ankle injury. Prosise, of course, is talented but not at all durable. Seattle might need to address whether they can really keep a roster spot next year for a player who hardly ever plays.

Dwight Freeney

Newly signed defensive end Freeney is expected to be available on Sunday. Freeney has picked up the defensive assignments quickly, probably helped by him playing in Atlanta last year for former Seahawks defensive coordinator (and current Falcons head coach) Dan Quinn.

While not nearly as quick as he once was, Freeney is a productive player who can help lessen Cliff Avril’s absence.
