Seahawks offensive line depth suddenly in question

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday the Seattle Seahawks will play a regular season game at home in front of fans for the first time since the Week 17 loss to the San Francisco 49ers that cost them the NFC West division title that season. When the visiting Tennessee Titans take the field, the Seahawks were looking to be relatively healthy, with just a pair of recent high draft picks unlikely to see the field due to injury. However, that was before Thursday.

The two players known to be likely to miss the game Sunday are, of course, 2021 second round pick Dee Eskridge and 2018 first round pick Rashaad Penny. Other than those two, though, the Hawks had been looking at having a clean injury report, once again showing the benefit of having rested starters during the preseason. However, Thursday a pair of Seattle offensive linemen worked their way onto the injury report, and the team could suddenly be thin at that group.

So, it was back to work after the regular load management for Gabe Jackson and Duane Brown, but all of a sudden Jamarco Jones and Damien Lewis both missed practice Thursday due to injury, a day after the Hawks saw Jordan Simmons depart the practice squad for the 53 man roster of the Las Vegas Raiders. In addition, Penny Hart continues to work his way back from a concussions suffered in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.

This means that it will be interesting to watch both the offensive line group and the receivers room for updates regarding injuries as gameday approaches.
