The 2018 Seattle Seahawks preseason reaches the “dress rehearsal” phase tonight (Friday, August 24th) in Minneapolis, where the team will take on the Minnesota Vikings.
Seattle has yet to win in the preseason, while the Vikings are 1-1. Wins and losses in preseason obviously don’t matter, I’m just stating facts. Traditionally, the third preseason game features the most amount of playing time for starters. Pete Carroll plans to play Russell Wilson well into the 3rd quarter, so we should expect most of the the first-unit on offense and defense to get plenty of snaps, and many of them will just sit out the final preseason game.
Of note in terms of injuries, the Seahawks will not have S Bradley McDougald, DB Byron Maxwell, WR Amara Darboh, or G J.R. Sweezy due to various ailments. The Vikings lost six players to injury last week, so they might play things a little closer to the vest this week. This should mark the return of running back Dalvin Cook, who tore his ACL last regular season.
