Seahawks-Giants final injury report: Jeremy Lane ruled out, C.J. Prosise questionable

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Seattle Seahawks Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It looks as if Seattle Seahawks rookie CB Shaquill Griffin will once again be pressed into starting duties, as normal starter Jeremy Lane has been listed as doubtful to play in Sunday’s road game against the New York Giants. Lane injured his groin during the team’s 46-18 win over the Indianapolis Colts on October 1st, and missed Seattle’s win over the Rams two weeks ago.

Saturday update: Lane has officially been ruled out

As expected, Luke Joeckel and Cliff Avril are out, with the latter placed on injured reserve. The questionable tags for Michael Bennett, Marcus Smith, and Nazair Jones aren’t really worth being worried about. Bennett is certain to play, according to Pete Carroll, while indications point to Smith and Jones also being ready for gameday.

The real question mark is the perpetually injured running back C.J. Prosise, who was a full participant in practice on Thursday, which Carroll said was a “good sign” as far as his availability for Sunday. Prosise has missed the last two games with an ankle injury, and has struggled to stay healthy since the start of his rookie season.

On the New York Giants side, dangerous pass rusher Olivier Vernon is out once again, as he continues to recover from his own ankle problem. Lastly, wide receiver Sterling Shepard (ankle) has been listed as questionable, and he was a limited participant in practice on Thursday.
