There is no denying the Seattle Seahawks face a significant challenge in Detroit at the weekend. The last thing they want to do is fall to 0-2 for the first time since 2018. The situation isn't helped by facing a Lions team coming off an impressive road win versus the reigning Super Bowl champions.

There are many factors that will help determine if the Seahawks are ultimately victorious. These include DK Metcalf being more in control and Seattle getting off the field defensively on third down. Another factor will be -- as always -- injuries.

In this respect there was some positive news on the injury front. More specifically, both Will Dissly and Cameron Young are no longer on the injury report, after previously being on there Wednesday. Here's a look at how things stand for the other six players who remain on the injury report, which included a new addition on Thursday:

Seattle Seahawks injury report from Thursday

Did Not Participate In Practice

Jordyn Brooks (NIR-resting player/knee): This is a repeat of last week when Jordyn Brooks practiced on Wednesday and had a veteran rest day on Thursday. In truth, this will likely be the routine for Brooks for the majority of this season. The linebacker had ACL surgery back in January and was activated from the PUP list in mid-August.

Charles Cross (toe): Head coach Pete Carroll had already admitted earlier in the week that it was going to be tough for Charles Cross to play versus the Lions. Thursday only reinforced this prognosis, as the left tackle missed practice for a second consecutive day. About the only positive, is that Cross has not followed right tackle Abraham Lucas onto the injured reserve list.

Mike Morris (shoulder): The shoulder injury for Mike Morris is a continuation of the issue he had during last week. The difference is that this week Morris has so far not taken part at all in practice. This leads to understandable concern regarding the defensive lineman's availability for Sunday, so Friday's updated injury report will go a long way toward determining this.

Devin Bush (shoulder): After being a limited participant a day earlier, Devin Bush missed practice altogether on Thursday. This alludes to Bush sustaining his shoulder injury during Wednesday's practice. We'll get a real idea of how serious the linebacker's injury is, following Friday's updated injury report.

Limited Participation In Practice

Jamal Adams (knee): This was the second consecutive day of Jamal Adams being a limited participant in practice. However, just having the safety out on the field at all is a positive step, after spending so much time on the sidelines with his knee injury. At this stage, the betting remains that Adams will not play this coming Sunday, as the Seahawks continue to -- quite rightly -- take a cautious approach with him.

Boye Mafe (knee): The initial indication was that Boye Mafe was held out of Wednesday's practice as a precautionary measure, with the hope that a rest day would help his injury. Along these lines, being upgraded to a limited participant on Thursday is a positive step. Officially Mafe is 50/50 to play in Detroit, but unofficially he's in a good position for the game.

Full Participation In Practice

Devon Witherspoon (hamstring): It was an encouraging sign that Devon Witherspoon completed a second straight day of full practice. In all likelihood, the cornerback will make his NFL debut on Sunday in Detroit. This will be a big boost for a secondary that was sorely lacking last weekend against Matthew Stafford and the Rams.
