The week started poorly for the Seattle Seahawks, falling 13-10 to the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football. That said, the 2-5 Hawks have a chance to right the ship prior to heading into the bye week as they host the 1-5 Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday at Lumen Field.
The Jaguars come to town with a coaching staff filled with former Seahawks assistants, including offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, passing game coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, offensive assistant Will Harriger, wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal and special teams coordinator Nick Sorensen.
In any case, in addition to the Seahawks holding a mini coaching reunion Sunday, they should also see the return to the field of a pair of young players who were sorely missed Monday against the New Orleans Saints. After being inactive Monday, both Damien Lewis and Darrell Taylor were full participants in practice Wednesday for the team.

Alex Collins was limited, but as Brady Henderson of ESPN notes in his tweet, Collins stated his injury did not bother him against the Saints, while Brandon Shell, who tweaked his ankle against New Orleans was the only other non-participant of note. It’s a relatively clean injury report for midseason, and the upcoming bye week could give the team a shot at bringing back several key offensive weapons in Russell Wilson, Chris Carson and Dee Eskridge at some point in the second half of the year.
