Seattle's Thursday injury report

There is a little bit of a concern with the Seahawks injury report on Thursday as four players missed practice and three are very important. Tyler Lockett (hamstring), Kenneth Walker III (calf), and Bobby Wagner (ankle) didn't practice. Neither did Phil Haynes (calf) who likely has lost his starting right guard spot to rookie Anthony Bradford anyway.

The good news is that Wagner, Lockett, and Walker also missed Wednesday but are probably just being held out to rest. Walker had 26 carries against the Arizona Cardinals. Either way, we know that Walker and Lockett know the offense well enough where there shouldn't be any issues with miscommunication if both play on Sunday.

Wagner was part of Seattle's Wednesday press conference, per usual, and if there was a possibility he was actually going to miss the game against the Browns, he probably would be working on his rehab and not talking to the press. Plus, there was no mention of his injury during the press conference so he is almost certainly going to play in Week 8.

Either way, Cleveland is much worse off offensively than the Seahawks are overall. Cleveland will not have Deshaun Watson at quarterback and will also be missing leading rusher Jerome Ford. Seattle's defense is playing well enough currently (and hopefully will continue to play well) that they should be able to limit Cleveland's offense enough where even if Seattle scores 14 points, they should win.
