The Seahawks will be without a big part of their defense when they face the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, as defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has been downgraded to out. Clowney, who is battling the flu while also dealing with a core-muscle injury, was initially listed as questionable.
Clowney did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, but was back with the team Friday and limited in practice.
"He's still getting back," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said after practice and before Clowney was downgraded to out. "He was out here today with us. He's recovering still. He's been pretty sick."
In addition to Clowney being out, the Seahawks will also be without linebacker Mychal Kendricks, and three players are questionable.
The Seahawks and the Panthers will meet this Sunday at the Bank of America Stadium for Week 15 of the 2019 season. Take a look back at photos from past games between the two teams.
