Of course, we have to lead with the bad news, which is that defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson (oblique), newly acquired safety Quandre Diggs (hamstring), and safety Lano Hill (elbow) are all unlikely to play on Sunday. None of them played last week, but you hope that at least Q-Jeff and Diggs are around for next Monday’s showdown at the San Francisco 49ers. Hill getting healthy soon would also help Seattle’s safety depth, which is currently just Marquise Blair, Bradley McDougald, and uh... Ugo Amadi? Yeah, that’s it.
Other than those three, it’s a pretty clean slate for Sunday, which is a relief. McDougald should be back, ditto Tre Flowers, so we should have a healthy starting secondary!

As for the Buccaneers, their injury report is light. TE O.J. Howard is out with an injury commonly known as “Bruce Arians doesn’t like me,” in addition to a hamstring problem. Normal starting TE is questionable with a rib injury, so that could hamper Tampa’s offense to be down both TEs.
Update: Ed Dickson’s status for Sunday appears to be “out,” as the 1 PM PT transaction deadline has passed and they didn’t cut anyone from the Seahawks roster to put Dickson on the 53-man roster.
