Over the the course of the past year the Seattle Seahawks have traded for three starting defensive backs. First they acquired Quandre Diggs from the Detroit Lions, then added Quinton Dunbar from the Washington Football Team before finally making the biggest splash addition in prying Jamal Adams away from the New York Jets.
When the Hawks take the field against the Miami Dolphins Sunday for their Week 4 matchup, two of the three acquisitions will be out due to injury.
In addition to Dunbar and Adams missing, the starter at left cornerback for the Seahawks, Shaquill Griffin, is listed as questionable heading into the game. Thankfully, Pete Carroll told reporters Griffin would be good to go.

It was similarly good news surrounding Damien Lewis and Chris Carson, both of whom appear likely to play in Miami.
Carroll says Damien Lewis "didn't even flinch'' and was able to practice all week. Sounds like he'll go right back into lineup.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) October 2, 2020
Pete Carroll says Chris Carson "looked good'' in practice this week, got work each of last two days, and seems to indicate he'll be ready to go Sunday.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) October 2, 2020
Though Carroll didn’t provide an update on Lano Hill, who is questionable after sitting out in Week 3, he did express confidence in Damarious Randall’s readiness should they need to elevate the veteran from their practice squad.
So, after starting the week with almost half the roster on the injury report, Seattle looks likely to get a few players back in the lineup on Sunday.
