Seattle Seahawks Injury Status Heading into the Regular Season

New, comments

Inactive

Chris Spencer: Spencer tore a quad muscle in week two of the preseason and is unlikely to return before week four.

Walter Jones: Jones had exploratory surgery on his surgically repaired left knee. He missed most of training camp and all of the preseason. It is unknown when Jones will return to action.

Marcus Trufant: Trufant was placed on the physically unable to perform list prior to training because of a slipped disc in his back. He was not activated from the list prior to final roster cuts and is not available to return until after the bye week.

Questionable

Seneca Wallace: Wallace suffered a groin injury that looked serious at the time and kept him out of practice and the final preseason game. Look for his official status leading up to Sunday's game, because Seattle might activate Mike Teel and allow Wallace time to further heal.

Past Injuries

Deion Branch: Branch has missed practice time, but was active for all four preseason games. Missed time has been attributed to soreness, general and knee soreness. He is expected to be active and available in week one.

Nate Burleson: Burleson has looked full-speed and hasn't been limited by the torn ACL he suffered in week one of last season. He did play against Denver, and was not very active in the preseason, but it is assumed those decisions were precautionary.

Matt Hasselbeck: Hasselbeck appears fully recovered from a slipped disc that cost him most of 2008.

Patrick Kerney: Kerney had reconstructive surgery in his shoulder and then surgery to remove bone chips in April. The Seahawks have moved him to right defensive end in part to protect him. He is expected to start week one.

Cory Redding: Redding seems fully recovered from groin and knee surgery that ended his 2008 season.
