The injury report for the Seattle Seahawks’ pivotal Week 5 showdown with the Los Angeles Rams isn’t littered with names, but for an injury-riddled defense, it almost seems like a cruel joke that the team’s best pass-rusher is questionable not because of injury, but food poisoning. Seriously.
Frank Clark is expected to play according to head coach Pete Carroll. He has missed the last two practices due to food poisoning, although he didn’t go into detail on what Clark ate that rendered him ill. Clark says he’s playing, though!
Appreciate all the concern over the last few days. Down a few, took down 8 i’v’s In the last 48 hours. Im playing this Sunday, period. Happy Friday.— Frank Clark (@TheRealFrankC_) October 6, 2018
The other name listed as “questionable” is left guard Ethan Pocic, who has been battling an ankle injury. Even if he is available on Sunday, J.R. Sweezy has taken his spot at left guard, so Pocic would just be a reserve.
Two men who are confirmed out are linebacker K.J. Wright and defensive lineman Rasheem Green. Wright is still dealing with a knee problem, while Green has one of those “legit” ankle injuries that one can only assume means he’ll be out for a bit longer.
With Wright out and Mychal Kendricks suspended, expect Austin Calitro to get the start alongside fellow linebackers Barkevious Mingo and Bobby Wagner.
Everyone else who’s on the active roster should be good to go, although we know a few will be healthy scratches come gameday.
