Last weekend's season-opener couldn't have turned out much worse for the Seattle Seahawks. After looking decent enough in the first half, they capitulated far too easily during the second 30 minutes versus a supposedly lesser opponent. As a result, it ended a run of four consecutive 1-0 starts to the regular season.

As you'd expect, the Seahawks graded out poorly versus the Rams. The positives were few and far between, in what was mostly a negative game overall. However, perhaps most alarming of all, was that some Seahawks admitted the Rams just played harder and wanted it more.

With all this said it's just one game, not that Week 2 will be any easier, as the Seahawks travel to Detroit to play the NFL's new media darlings. Given the events of Week 1, the Lions are unsurprisingly favorites ahead of the battle in Motown. As always though, injuries will play a significant role in the eventual outcome.

Seattle Seahawks injury report from Wednesday

Did Not Participate In Practice

Charles Cross (toe): The Seahawks are already compromised, with right tackle Abraham Lucas being placed on the IR and having to miss at least four weeks. Left tackle Charles Cross may not have joined his fellow offensive lineman on IR, but it's not looking particularly positive for him either. Head coach Pete Carroll has admitted it will be tough for Cross to play this coming weekend in Detroit.

Boye Mafe (knee): Boye Mafe was on the injury report during last week, due to an illness which ultimately didn't stop him from playing. This time around, Mafe was held out of practice on Wednesday during to a knee issue. The initial indication is the linebacker is just being given some rest to help with his injury, but it will be interesting to see what his practice status is as the week continues.

Mike Morris (shoulder): Mike Morris' shoulder injury is a continuation from last week, when he was limited in practice to begin with, but then a full participant the remainder of the week. As such, it would be understandable to be concerned about the defensive lineman sitting out Wednesday's practice altogether. The hope is Morris is just being rested as a precaution, but we'll know more in the coming days.

Limited Participation in Practice

Jamal Adams (knee): Just seeing Jamal Adams take part in practice at all on Wednesday was a welcome sight for Seahawks fans, no matter how limited he was. Not that the safety will return on Sunday for his first regular season action in a year. At this stage, the fans should continue to approach the Adams situation with the same caution as the coaching staff is.

Devin Bush (shoulder): Devin Bush entered the NFL with high hopes, after being selected 10th overall in the 2019 draft, but hasn't been the same player since a ACL tear. Hoping to prove himself in Seattle, the last thing Bush needs is another setback so early in the season. As with the players mentioned above, we'll find out how serious the linebacker's injury is as the week progresses.

Full Participation in Practice

Will Dissly (shoulder): You have to wonder if Will Dissly will ever fulfill his potential, although in fairness his underwhelming performance against the Rams was indicative of the offense as a whole. After dealing with a knee injury towards the end of last season, this time around it's a shoulder issue. On the positive side, at least the tight end practiced fully on Wednesday, which bodes well for this coming Sunday.

Devon Witherspoon (hamstring): Devon Witherspoon's full participation in Wednesday's practice was undoubtedly the highlight of the day. Dealing with a hamstring since the beginning of August, it is vital for the cornerback to get into the lineup as soon as possible. After taking an understandable cautious approach with Witherspoon, the expectation/hope is he will make his NFL debut against the Lions.

Cameron Young (knee): This is Cameron Young's first appearance on the Injury Report this season, with a knee issue. As with Dissly though, it is a good sign Young was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. The nose tackle should be good to go on Sunday, pending his status these next two days on the updated Injury Report.
