For the second consecutive week, the Seahawks’ initial injury report ahead of Sunday is crowded. In total, 25 players were given injury designations, with six held out of practice, 12 limited participants, and seven full participants. Among those 25, three were given veteran rest days plus Duane Brown, who was listed with a knee injury but has received days off since the start of the season.
Now THAT'S an injury report for Seahawks today, though I sense most of the limited guys are precautionary. Still, lots of names there: pic.twitter.com/oSeCCuX5Ju— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) September 30, 2020
As last week proved, with the injury report getting considerably thinner as the week progressed, a fair number of the players were held out or limited as a precaution. Before the team’s initial injury report was released Wednesday, Pete Carroll met with reporters and provided updates on those whose status remain up in the air.
For two starters, Week 4 appears to be in doubt. Carroll called Jamal Adams day-to-day but added he was “pretty sore,” and the team may be cautious with their star safety. Jordyn Brooks, similarly, faces “a real challenge” to make it back for Seattle’s trip to face the Dolphins.
It’s good news, however, for five other important pieces. Carroll told reporters that Chris Carson, Damien Lewis, and Ethan Pocic all participated in the team’s walk-through on Wednesday, as the three starters try to stay in the lineup. Lano Hill and Quinton Dunbar, two late inactives in Week 3, are also trending towards a Week 4 return with Carroll saying Dunbar is trying his best to make it back.
As the week progresses, we should get further clarity on the status of those in doubt and hopefully, a much shorter injury report.
