If you’re like me and watched Cedric Ogbuehi turn in a particularly horrifying performance at right tackle on Monday night, you’re rooting for the quickest recovery possible for Brandon Shell.
The good news, if you take Pete Carroll at this word, is that Shell has “turned a corner” and he’s making good progress after spraining his ankle against the Arizona Cardinals. The bad news is that he’s still doubtful and a near certainty to miss Sunday’s showdown with the New York Giants.
Also unlikely to see action is CB Tre Flowers, who has been playing better as of late but left the Eagles game with a hamstring tweak. It doesn’t appear to be serious, but it’s serious enough that much like Daniel Jones for the Giants, Flowers is doubtful. If he’s out, then DJ Reed gets the start at right cornerback, having previously started at left cornerback for the injured Shaquill Griffin and Quinton Dunbar versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Here’s the final injury report. For what it’s worth I think we’ve seen the last of Travis Homer this season and he may just end up stashed on IR when Rashaad Penny returns. Don’t worry about any of the “questionable” designations for anyone except Carlos Dunlap, who is more iffy to play than the rest.
