The Seattle Seahawks take on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9 (Week 9 already? Insane.). Seattle is 5-2 and the Ravens are 6-2. Seattle will face likely its biggest challenge of the season so far at quarterback as Lamar Jackson can throw and run extremely well.
Baltimore isn't asking Jackson to run quite as much as he did earlier in his career, but he is still extremely effective. Through eight games, he has run for 380 yards (which would rank second on the Seahawks) and averages 5.1 yards per carry. But Jackson is also completing 70.5 percent of his passes, easily the best number of his career.
Baltimore also has an excellent tight end in Mark Andrews. Good tight ends usually give the Seahawks major problems. Let's hope that changes in Week 9. But here is some news for your Wednesday.
Seattle Seahawks Wednesday injury isn't bad at all
Seattle is beginning to have a very good problem. They are getting more players back from injury than they are losing. On Wednesday, rookie running back Kenny McIntosh was a full participant. So was nose guard Austin Faoliu. McIntosh was looking excellent in training camp before he injured his leg and he has, obviously, not played yet this year.
Faoliu nor McIntosh have been actived yet, though. That means when they are, Seattle will have to release two other players to make room for them.
Jamal Adams and Tyler Lockett were on the injury report as neither participated in practice. Both were simply being held out to rest. Lockett missed most of practice last week and was just fine during the game.
Boye Mafe, Anthony Bradford, Phil Haynes, and Jerrick Reed II were limited but none of these four appear as if they won't be able to play against the Ravens. Basically, Seattle is as healthy as it has been all year.
