Several Seahawks missed practice on Thursday ahead of the Jaguars game on Sunday. What are the chances these players play this week. Here’s our guess.

The Seahawks have had a rough season with injuries to key players. Seattle has played through them and played pretty well. No Richard Sherman? No Kam Chancellor? So far that is OK.

Here is my guess at whether the players who missed practice on Thursday play on Sunday.

Did Not Participate on Thursday

Duane Brown (Ankle)

Since Brown joined the Seahawks a few weeks ago, Seattle’s offensive line is much improved. Since week eight when Brown was traded to Seattle, the Seahawks rank eighth in pass protection. Seattle needs Brown to play on Sunday.

Chances he plays: 95 %

Jimmy Graham (Ankle)

Graham is tied for the league lead in touchdown receptions with nine. Russell Wilson to Graham is now a great connection in the red zone.

Chances he plays: 95%

Bobby Wagner (Hamstring)

Wagner is dealing with an injury that will not be better until the offseason. But he has played through the hamstring strain for several weeks now. He’s playing Sunday.

Chances he plays: 100%

Michael Bennett (Knee)

Bennett, like Wagner, has been dealing with a knee injury – and a plantar fascia thing – for several weeks. He’s played through it and will do so on Sunday.

Chances he plays: 100%

Nazair Jones (Ankle)

Jones missed last week’s game after being stepped on in practice. Jones has had a very good rookie season and will be a starter in Seattle for several seasons in the future. Still, Seattle will take its time getting Jones back on the field this season.

Chances he plays: 25%

Limited participation

Dion Jordan and Marcus Smith both practiced a bit on Thursday. I have a feeling Jordan won’t go on Sunday. But Smith will. No real reason I feel this way, so we will see.
