Seahawks updated injury report week 9 versus Buccaneers
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks go into week 9 against the Buccaneers fairly healthy. But these are the players who won’t play against Tampa Bay on Sunday.
The Seahawks picked up receiver Josh Gordon off of waivers this week, but it was assumed he would not play against the Buccaneers. Hopefully Gordon will stay clean and on the field and be a productive member of the Seattle football team and hopefully that will start week 10 against the undefeated 49ers. Gordon is officially inactive for Seattle against Tampa Bay.
Also inactive for the Seahawks are rookie receivers Gary Jennings and John Urusua who have been inactive all season long. They seems to simply be on the roster to allow Seattle players to make inactive each week and not have to make players not available who are actually going to help the team.
Safeties Lano Hill and Quandre Diggs are also unable to play. Seattle is hopeful that Diggs will be available next week, like Gordon, against San Francisco. Diggs hasn’t played since being traded to Seattle a couple of weeks ago. He has a hamstring issue.
Hill has an elbow injury and hasn’t played in some weeks. With Tedric Thompson going on IR, though, Hill will probably be on the active roster once he is healthy enough to play again. Hill has been decent if not spectacular in the limited snaps he has played in his Seattle career.
Quniton Jefferson is out again with an oblique strain. He has been very productive this season but has missed the last two weeks.
Finally, running back C.J. Prosise is also out again. He is probably a healthy scratch. Prosise’s time in Seattle will likely after the season as he hasn’t been overly productive when given his chances. He is a good guy, it seems, but not a good enough player to keep around.
