The Seattle Seahawks put out their final injury report Friday for their home game this weekend against Los Angeles. It’s a small list which is good because the Hawks will need all hands on deck.

The Seattle Seahawks play another division game Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. As they do every week, Seattle released their final injury report Friday afternoon. With one possible exception, this was probably the most optimistic injury report since the season started.


Obviously, Earl Thomas is done for the season after breaking his leg in Arizona last Sunday and going on injured reserve. Tight end Will Dissly was also placed on IR after suffering a season-ending injury. Earlier this week linebacker Mychal Kendricks was suspended indefinitely by the NFL for pleading guilty to Federal insider trading charges.

The Seattle Seahawks made it sound like linebacker K.J. Wright was on the verge of returning for the past several weeks. Now it appears that he will be out for another few games, including this Sunday. Defensive end Rasheem Green will miss another week with an Ankle injury.

Back on the field

Guard Ethan Pocic (knee) has been out for weeks. He was limited in practice earlier this week but got in a full one for Friday. He won’t start Sunday, J.R. Sweezy will man the left guard position, between tackle Duane Brown and center Justin Britt. At this point, it looks like Sweezy may have won the job outright.


Defensive end Dion Jordan appears to be back in the mix this week. He missed last Sunday’s game with a hip injury. His absence combined Green’s necessitated Brandon Jackson‘s promotion from the practice squad. For reasons that will be apparent shortly, the Seahawks are going to need him.

Running back Chris Carson also didn’t play in Arizona due to a hip injury. Two weeks ago, against the Dallas Cowboys, Carson ran for 102 yards on 32 carries. Fortunately his replacement, Mike Davis stepped in and rushed for over 100 yards against the Cardinals defense.

Frank Clark, Seattle’s best pass rusher, missed practice this week with food poisoning. As someone who had food poisoning in the past, I can tell you that it’s awful. Clark is an elite athlete, but the illness takes its toll on the body. He will be far less than 100 percent Sunday. That’s why Jordan’s return is so important.
