The Seahawks gave an update to their injuries on Friday. Some players are listed as questionable and some are not. But who is might surprise you heading into Sunday’s Rams game. And Seattle needs a win.
Thankfully (?), Seahawks linebacker Wagner is listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game. I say this because it could be worse. He could be out. Or doubtful. But the fact that there is a chance Wagner could play is a good thing. With no Wagner, Seattle will not win. My opinion. But I stand by it.
Wagner is the best defensive player in the league. Seattle cannot afford to lose him. The Rams will score 35 points if Wagner misses the game. The Seahawks cannot outscore the Rams in that case.
Wright, sadly, is more unlikely to play. The Seahawks have listed Wright as “doubtful” to go on Sunday. Don’t get me wrong, Wright is a fantastic player. But Seattle should be able to overcome a Wright injury, just not a Wagner one.
Davis is expected to play on Sunday. Thank goodness. Besides Chris Carson, Davis has been the best full-time running back Seattle has had. Let me explain. J.D. McKissic is not a full-time running back, though he has been good in special situations. Thomas Rawls should be cut this offseason. Eddie Lacy should not be re-signed this offseason. Chris Carson has been injured since being really good.
Seattle needs Davis to play. It seems like he will. Good.
Jones is also doubtful to play on Sunday. No big surprise here as he has been out for a few weeks now. He has a bright future in Seattle. Just not this week.
Seattle’s biggest game of the season is this week against the Rams. Hopefully, the Seahawks will have enough healthy players to pull out a win.
