Seahawks Depth Tested vs Eagles And Other Week 11 Snap Count Notes

Curious who plays in each game and how much they play, as well as what the distribution of playing time might mean? Throughout the season, we’ll post the snap counts for the Seahawks the day after each game and take a look at what stood out.

Here's what we saw from Sunday's 26-15 win over the Eagles:

Offense

  • Russell Wilson and four of Seattle’s five linemen played all 67 offensive snaps, while left tackle George Fant missed 10 plays because of a shoulder injury. Fellow rookie Rees Odhiambo filled in for Fant during that stretch, his first playing time on offense this season.
  • Receiver/quarterback Doug Baldwin played 84 percent of the snaps, while Jermaine Kearse played 70 percent, followed by Tyler Lockett (52 percent), Paul Richardson (30 percent) and Tanner McEvoy (15 percent).
  • At tight end, Jimmy Graham played 75 percent of the snaps, while Luke Willson played 51 percent in his first game back from knee surgery. No. 3 tight end Brandon Williams played 7 percent of the snaps.
  • Thomas Rawls was surprised after the game to learn he had played 40 snaps (60 percent), a big workload in his first game back from injury that was made necessary by other injuries at running back. C.J. Prosise, who left the game early with a scapula injury, played 28 percent of the snaps, while Troymaine Pope played only five snaps in his Seahawks debut before leaving with an sprained ankle.
  • Backup quarterback Trevone Boykin played two snaps late in the game as a running back to give Rawls a break.

Defense

  • Richard Sherman, Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright played all 80 defensive snaps, while Kam Chancellor missed one, being replaced by Kelcie McCray after trainers came to check on him, requiring him to sit one play.
  • Starting cornerback DeShawn Shead played only six snaps before leaving with a hamstring injury, which meant usual nickel cornerback Jeremy Lane took over an every-down role, playing 98 percent of the snaps as the right cornerback in the base defense and the nickel corner when the Seahawks brought in a third cornerback.
  • With Shead out, Neiko Thorpe saw his first playing time on defense, playing 58 percent of the snaps as the third corner when the Seahawks were in their nickel defense. Thorpe left the game late with cramps, allowing rookie DeAndre Elliott to earn his first playing time on defense as well (16 percent).
  • Earl Thomas played 54 percent of the snaps before leaving the game with a hamstring injury, and was replaced by Steven Terrell (46 percent).
  • With the Seahawks playing a lot of nickel defense, strongside linebacker Brock Coyle played only 22 percent of the snaps.
  • Frank Clark led defensive linemen in playing time at 78 percent, followed by Cliff Avril (64 percent), Damontre Moore (52 percent), Jarran Reed (51 percent), Tony McDaniel (48 percent) and Cassius Marsh and Ahtyba Rubin (42 percent). Recently-signed defensive tackle John Jenkins played 21 percent of the snaps in his Seahawks debut.

Special Teams

  • Tight end Brandon Williams once again led the team in special teams playing time at 93 percent. Next were Kelcie McCray and Cassius Marsh at 79 percent, followed by Jordan Tripp and Dewey McDonald at 72 percent, and Brock Coyle at 62 percent.
