The Seahawks are in pretty good shape health-wise heading into week 13. Here is where Seattle and the 49ers stand with injuries.
The Seahawks are much healthier than the 49ers heading into Sunday’s week 13 matchup at CenturyLink. Not only does Seattle have a better roster even when healthy, the 49ers are going to be missing so many key players that Seattle has very little reason to lose the game.
Seattle, though, will once again be without K.J. Wright. At this point it would not be surprising to see Wright miss the rest of the season. He has never fully recovered from having his knee scoped in preseason.
C.J. Prosise will also miss Sunday’s game. Prosise is always a question mark for playing and he has not been effective in a long time even when he does participate. Prosise has an abdomen injury. With the return this week of J.D. McKissic, Seattle may simply put Prosise on IR ending his season. And possibly his Seahawks career.
Not completely out but probably unlikely to play on Sunday are fullback Tre Madden (chest) and safety Shalom Luani. Neither participated in Friday’s practice.
Also, defensive tackle Shamar Stephen has been limited in practice this week, but Seattle simply seems to be resting him. He should play against the 49ers.
The 49ers, of course, are already without starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and several other starters who were injured earlier in the year. To make things worse for San Francisco, though, they will be without receivers Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin.
Basically, the 49ers have no one to really throw to other than tight end George Kittle. Seattle should put 10 guys in the box and try to stop Matt Breida. It would appear that San Francisco would have very little other choice than to run Breida 55 times on Sunday.
