Seahawks-Steelers injury report: Poona Ford and Tedric Thompson doubtful, Ezekiel Ansah questionable

NFL: Preseason-Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Poona Ford has been listed as doubtful and Ezekiel Ansah as questionable on the Injury Report for the Seattle Seahawks’ Week 2 road opener at the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ford, a starting defensive tackle who has shown signs of second-year blossom, suffered a calf injury in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals, an injury that some thought could be cramps. Ian Rappaport reported that the injury is a calf strain that is considered “week-to-week.” That suggests the strain is likely a grade 1 to 2 in severity.

Ansah, meanwhile, is still looking to recover from his shoulder injury. That leaves the Seahawks potentially light at the “LEO” pass rusher spot for the second week running.

About two-thirds of players listed as doubtful still suit up for action. For the “questionable” designation, that figure improves to roughly three-quarters.

Starting free safety Tedric Thompson is the second player on the doubtful list with his hamstring injury, meaning Lano Hill could make a return to the position when the Seahawks travel to Pittsburgh.

Special teams captain and reserve outside cornerback Neiko Thorpe is also listed as “doubtful” with a hamstring injury. WR David Moore and backup C Joey Hunt are confirmed as out.

More updates will be made available upon conclusion of Seahawks practice, which is ongoing at the time of this article’s publish.

Update: The final injury report doesn’t add anyone else to the status list, but does include everyone who practiced fully and who didn’t.
