For a team that has played much of the season with six or seven wide receivers on the roster, the Seattle Seahawks will only have four available for Sunday’s wild card game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
It was already known on Friday that Malik Turner, who missed last week’s regular season finale against the San Francisco 49ers with a concussion, still hasn’t cleared protocol and thus won’t play on Sunday. Now we have news that Jaron Brown, who was questionable with a sprained knee, has been downgraded to out.
Interestingly enough, reporter Jay Glazer said on this morning’s NFL on FOX pre-game show that Brown wasn’t missing this game because of injury, but rather undisclosed “personal reasons.” I don’t recall that being reported at all this week, but that’s the latest story.
Your wide receiver corps in Philadelphia now consists of Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, David Moore, and John Ursua. Lockett is literally the only one who has caught a postseason pass, seeing as Metcalf and Ursua are rookies and Moore barely played against the Dallas Cowboys last year.
This is still theoretically a depth chart that Eagles fans would salivate over given their injuries at WR, but it’s still not exactly ideal for Russell Wilson and this Seahawks offense.
Full inactives will be announced later today.
