When the Seattle Seahawks filed their midweek injury report on Wednesday in advance of the team’s Week 9 showdown with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, nearly a third of the roster was listed on the injury report. As many expected, however, there were several names that were likely being given additional rest days in the heart of the season, including Bobby Wagner, Chris Carson and Tyler Lockett.
Then, when the Hawks filed their Thursday injury report, that expectation proved to be true.
While Duane Brown remained limited as the team takes care to slowly work him back from a biceps strain suffered against the New Orleans Saints in Week 3, much of the rest of the team appears set to play Sunday. Of the 18 members of the team who were listed on the injury report Thursday, 14 of them were full participants, meaning it would seem likely that most or all of those players could be available against the Bucs.
There is, obviously, a possibility that some of these players may not respond well after participating fully in practice. Thus, the Friday injury report will, as always, be the most important of the week. That said, the health picture for the Seahawks is pretty good, considering the team has reached the midway point of the regular season and still has the bye coming up after Week 10.
