Seahawks final injury report week 13: Carlos Dunlap might be out
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks could be without Carlos Dunlap in week 13 versus the Giants.
This has been a tough season for lots of teams in the NFL as far as keeping good players healthy and the Seattle Seahawks have struggled with this as well. While Seattle added back Chris Carson and Shaquill Griffin in week 12, they could be without Carlos Dunlap in week 13.
Dunlap is dealing with a foot injury and is listed as questionable against the New York Giants. Since coming over from the Bengals in week 9, Dunlap has helped transform the defense. He has 3.5 sacks, 8 quarterback hits and 5 tackles for loss in four games for the Seahawks. Dunlap did some limited work on Friday in practice but it wouldn’t be surprising to see him miss the game.
Seattle will likely not have cornerback Tre Flowers either as he is dealing with a hamstring injury. Flowers started the season struggling but has been pretty good over the last few weeks. In place of Flowers will likely step D.J. Reed and Reed has been very good since being activated in week 8. Reed is the second-highest graded corner on the Seattle team in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.
Right tackle Brandon Shell will probably miss week 13 as well and Cedric Ogbuechi will play in his place. This was an issue last week against the Eagles as Ogbuechi was not good. The Giants also have a good defense, like the Eagles, so Seattle’s offense could be limited without Shell setting the edge n the right side.
Right guard Damien Lewis is listed as questionable with a groin injury but is expected to play. Same for Carlos Hyde with a toe injury but is expected to play and not be limited.
A key Giants injury
For the New York Giants, they will likely be without quarterback Daniel Jones who is doubtful with a hamstring injury. Colt McCoy will play for Jones. The Giants offense is not great even with Jones and should be worse with McCoy.
The Giants will travel to Seattle to play the Seahawks for a 1:05 pm PT start at Lumen Field. Seattle is 8-3 and the Giants are 4-7 but both teams are in first place in their respective divisions so both teams are battling for playoff spots.
