When the Seattle Seahawks host the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16 this weekend, there is very little that can be decided on Sunday afternoon, but that is far from meaning the game doesn’t carry any weight. The Seahawks are looking to maintain their grip on both first place in the NFC West and the top overall seed in the NFC, while the Cardinals are looking to annoyingly defeat the Hawks in Seattle for the umpteenth time this decade.
When the teams take the field, Seattle will be looking pretty good in terms of health, at least as far as things go when it comes to Week 16 of the NFL season. The team suffered a couple of injuries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 15, but are relatively healthy given how late in the season it is. On Wednesday, Duane Brown and Jadeveon Clowney both rested, as they have of recent, as the team looks to save them for Sundays.
Otherwise, the only two Seahawks who did not practice due to injury were Bobby Wagner and Quandre Diggs, who both rolled their ankles on Sunday. George Fant didn’t practice as well, but that was apparently due to the death illness that has been going around, rather than an injury.
Everyone else practiced, whether limited or in full, and of note was starting center Joey Hunt being listed with a “fibula” injury of some sort. My best guess is that he may have some kind of bone bruise, because I’d assume if the fibula were broken or cracked that they’d be holding him out.
In any case, we’ll see how many players are listed on the final injury report when it is released on Friday.
