Three Seahawks Doubtful For Week 9 Game vs. Tampa Bay

The Seahawks will be mostly healthy heading into their Week 9 game against Tampa Bay, with only three players showing up on the final injury report of the week. 

The Seahawks finished their week of practice with a relatively short injury list heading into Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Only three players—safeties Lano Hill and Quandre Diggs and defensive end Quinton Jefferson—were on the final injury report, all listed as doubtful, meaning everyone else on the 53-man roster should be available aside from receiver Josh Gordon, who was claimed off of waivers Friday.

One player not on the injury report is tight end Ed Dickson, who returned to practice from injured reserve this week. Dickson, who had knee surgery in August, has not yet been added to the 53-man roster, so he does not have to be listed, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the veteran tight end has a chance to play Sunday. The Seahawks would have to make a roster move by Saturday afternoon if Dickson is going to play.

"He did make it through the week," Carroll said. "Gives us a chance that we could activate him. We're going to take it all the way up to our last opportunity tomorrow. We'll let you know what we're doing there."

On Diggs, who came to Seattle in a trade two weeks ago but is likely to miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury Carroll said, "He's still rehabbing. He's not ready this week unless something crazy happens. We'll hold out hope and he'll be doubtful going in. If something happens where we need him in an emergency situation."

Hill, who has missed the past two games with an elbow injury, did practice this week on a limited basis, but isn't ready for game action yet.

"He's running," Carroll said. "He's up to full speed running and all that kind of stuff. The elbow is not bothering him in that regard. He was able to put in a really hard work week, which is really good for him. I don't know because it's a bone issue. They've got to see if it's healed enough. He's feeling really good. He'd like to play, wants to go and all that. The doctors are holding him back a little bit. Next week, by Wednesday, Thursday, we should have a good feel for what's going on."
