The Seahawks enter their final regular season game of 2018 fairly healthy. Let’s hope the game ends with Seattle healthy too.
This is a bit of an odd final injury report for the Seahawks. Really, the list of players listed here for Seattle isn’t the most important part. The important part is making sure this list doesn’t grow during week 17 against the Cardinals.
Seattle, however, comes into the final week of the season pretty healthy. There are some players dealing with injury, of course, but if Sunday were a playoff game then nearly all of the Seahawks key players would be in the game.
No Seattle player has been ruled out for Sunday but there is also no reason to play guys who need to be almost fully healthy next week. The only thing Seattle is playing for on Sunday is playoff-seeding. The real games start next week.
Only one Seattle player, J.R. Sweezy, is listed as doubtful. Sweezy has been solid this season and should probably be sat for the wild card game next week. He injured his foot last week against the Chiefs.
Fellow guard D.J. Fluker (hamstring) played a bunch against the Chiefs after Sweezy left the game. Fluker wasn’t supposed to get as many snaps as he did but he played well anyway. Seattle might be smart to rest Fluker too as, again, he is more important in the playoffs than week 17. Fluker is questionable.
The rest of the questionables are all listed with knee issues. Bradley McDougald, Dion Jordan, Tedric Thompson and Rashaad Penny may not play on Sunday. If any of them do, most likely they will get limited snaps.
