The hits to the Seattle Seahawks in the trenches simply won’t stop coming. The season started off with the offensive line losing both starting tackles Charles Cross and Abe Lucas in the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, and while both have since returned the Hawks will be without one of the second year tackles Sunday when they take on the Arizona Cardinals.
In addition to Lucas missing his eleventh game of the season, Seattle is also set to be without defensive end Mario Edwards due to a knee injury suffered in the Week 17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Also not playing will be guard Phil Haynes, who remains on injured reserve, and running back Kenny McIntosh, who apparently injured a thumb in practice this week.
Seahawks game status report. No real surprises here. Carroll had basically said Monday Lucas wasn't gonna make it. Jordyn Brooks listed as questionable, which seems good news in the overall.

According to head coach Pete Carroll, Jordyn Brooks was able to practice Friday and will play against the Cardinals, while Jarran Reed will be a gametime decision.
Pete Carroll said Jordyn Brooks looked fine in practice today and will play Sunday. Jarran Reed, meanwhile, will be a game-time decision. Carroll said he has a big bruise on his knee and again was unable to practice today.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) January 5, 2024
Reed being unable to go could be a huge hit to a struggling run defense against a Cardinals team that could look to run the ball a significant amount after having run for more than 200 yards in two of their last three games.
And now it’s on to the Saturday afternoon roster moves ahead of the season finale Sunday.
