The Seattle Seahawks face a big test on Sunday, as they look to avoid going 0-2 for the first time since 2018. The Detroit Lions will undoubtedly be a tough opponent, buoyed by their win in Kansas City during Week 1. It will be up to the Seahawks to prioritize the important aspects of the game, including establishing the trenches.

In terms of injuries, we already know right tackle Abraham Lucas was placed on the Injured Reserve list earlier this week. The Seahawks signed 41-year-old Jason Peters as a replacement, but Sunday will be too soon for him to play. On the positive side, Devon Witherspoon was officially removed from the injury report on Friday and will make his NFL debut in Detroit.

More generally speaking, Friday's injury report for Week 2 makes for better reading than last week. Whereas the final Week 1 report listed 13 players, this week's Friday report only has seven players on it. At the same time, there is still some disappointing news in respect of the status of certain key individuals.

Seattle Seahawks injury report from Friday

Did Not Participate In Practice

Charles Cross (toe): It has been suspected all week, that Charles Cross would not play on Sunday. However, it became official on Friday, when the left tackle was ruled out by Pete Carroll. The Seahawks head coach did offer a silver lining, however, in saying Cross is making good progress.

Boye Mafe (knee): It's been a bit of a frustrating, back-and-forth week for Boye Mafe. The linebacker was held out of practice on Wednesday, but then seemed to make progress by being a limited participant the following day. However, Mafe missed practice again on Friday and has officially been listed as questionable for Sunday.

Mike Morris (shoulder): Mike Morris was able to make his NFL regular season debut last weekend, despite dealing with a shoulder injury. Unfortunately for the defensive lineman, it came at a cost, with him not taking part in practice all this week due to the same injury. As a result, Morris has now officially been ruled out to play the Lions.

Jarran Reed (NIR-resting player): Jarran Reed popped up on the injury report last Friday with a toe issue. However, the nose tackle was still a full participant in practice and he played against the Rams. This time around, Friday was just about giving Reed a rest day and he will be good to go against the Lions.

Limited Participation In Practice

Jamal Adams (knee): Limited in practice all week, Jamal Adams was always unlikely to play against the Lions. Having only just rejoined the team for training, the safety was officially ruled out on Friday. Carroll did offer some intriguing information though, in saying Adams could return for the Seahawks next weekend.

Devin Bush (shoulder): Devin Bush was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, then sat out altogether on Thursday. This alluded to the linebacker sustaining his injury during Wednesday's practice. Regardless, Bush returned to limited participation in practice on Friday and has officially been listed as questionable to play in Detroit.

Full Participation In Practice

Jordyn Brooks (NIR-resting player/knee): This week followed the same path as the previous one for Jordyn Brooks. The linebacker practiced on Wednesday, was given a rest day on Thursday, and listed as a full participant in practice on Friday's injury report. Expect the routine to be in place for most of, if not all, this season for Brooks, who underwent ACL surgery back in January.
