Despite starting the week with almost half of the 53-man roster on the injury report, the Seahawks’ final injury report ahead of their Week 5 game against the Vikings features just six players.
Jamal Adams is the lone player already declared out, with Pete Carroll saying he would miss the game earlier in the week. Among the five questionable players—Lano Hill, Quinton Dunbar, Jordyn Brooks, Carlos Hyde, and Mike Iupati—some have a good outlook for Sunday, others less so.

For Hill, a back injury looks likely to continue to keep him out of the lineup. There was some uncertainty around the injury when Carroll was asked on Friday.

Two starters, Iupati and Dunbar, have the best chance to play among those questionable. Dunbar has been dealing with a knee injury for several weeks now, while Iupati had back spasms during the week.

While Brooks did not practice at all during the week, Carroll said he had taken a positive turn and has a chance. Hyde, too, has a chance to play but the team could play it safe with both players ahead of the bye week.

"Really good chance" Quinton Dunbar plays Sunday
Jordyn Brooks made a positive turn. Carlos Hyde could likely play but Carroll is tempted to rest them with a bye next week
No word on if Damon Harrison will play but Carroll didn't make it sound likely
Seattle may end up playing Minnesota down a starter or two but for now, just Adams is certain to miss out.
