The Seahawks play the Lions on Sunday. Seattle is mostly healthy. But here who isn’t playing in week eight (and some of who is).
The Seahawks are a pretty healthy team going into week eight against the Lions. Let’s hope after the game they are still in the same shape. On Sunday, Seattle will get back two players who have missed the entire season: K.J. Wright and Ed Dickson.
Both players may be on limited snaps but both should start. Wright will be a welcome addition to play alongside fellow linebacker Bobby Wagner. Wagner and Wright form the best linebacker duo in the NFL when both are playing and healthy.
Dickson can catch a pass or two but his specialty is blocking. Seattle will want to run the ball and control the clock and Dickson has the ability and experience to help the offense do that. Dickson and Nick Vannett will get the majority of snaps at tight end.
Overall, the Seahawks inactives are not players who would be expected to have big impacts in the game. Nazair Jones has missed quite a few games already this season. So has rookie defensive end Rasheem Green.
Joey Hunt is also unable to play on Sunday. He’s the backup center and a good backup. Let’s hope Justin Britt can stay on the field. If anything were to happen to Britt, Ethan Pocic would probably slide in at center.
As far as other players able to go besides Wright and Dickson, Dion Jordan will play. Seattle will need him to help Frank Clark in putting pressure on Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Seattle needs to help their young secondary with pressure in any way they can.
