Friday's Injury Report

Four players were ruled out on Friday, including starting cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin (concussion/hamstring) and Quinton Dunbar (knee). Center Ethan Pocic (concussion) and defensive tackle Bryan Mone (ankle) will also not be available on Sunday vs. the Rams.

While the injuries challenge the Seahawks' depth in the secondary, they'll be helped by the return of Ugo Amadi, who had missed Weeks 8 & 9 while dealing with a hamstring injury. On the defensive line, the Seahawks will turn to Damon "Snacks" Harrison, expected to be activated from the practice squad this weekend. The team was able to add reinforcements last week in the form of defensive ends Rasheem Green, activated from injured reserve after missing six games with a stinger, and Carlos Dunlap II, acquired in a trade with the Bengals earlier this month. Dunlap II recorded a sack in his Seahawks debut vs. the Bills, and will have the benefit of a full week under his belt as he continues to settle in with his new club.

A total of seven players are questionable for Sunday. The team continues to be as patient as possible with running backs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring), who have both missed the previous two games.

"Carlos practiced today and got work done for the first time in a bit," Carroll said. "Chris is running today and tomorrow and is going to run on game day, see if he's ready to go. We're waiting as long as we can to help him out. We think Chris has a chance if we don't overdo it early. That's why we decided not to put him on the field today. He still worked out and ran and all of that."

With Pocic ruled out, the Seahawks will start Kyle Fuller at center. Fuller and the rest of the offensive line can expect to have a busy day as they deal with defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

Special teams captain Neiko Thorpe (hip) returned to practice this week and may be activated to play this weekend after missing the past six games with a hip injury.

"Neiko's ready to go," Carroll said. "We're really excited about getting him back. He's been a real centerpiece on special teams, and we've really missed him."

Meanwhile, the Rams will be at nearly full strength this weekend. They had no players ruled out and only three questionable: linebackers Leonard Floyd (knee) and Terrell Lewis (shoulder), and offensive lineman Brian Allen (knee).

Thursday's Injury Report

The Seahawks remain in "wait and see" mode with several players on both sides of the ball, including running backs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring), center Ethan Pocic (concussion), corners Shaquill Griffin (concussion/hamstring) and Quinton Dunbar (knee), as well as linebacker K.J. Wright (ankle). Head coach Pete Carroll hinted during his press conference on Wednesday that decisions on many of the players would have to be made closer to gameday, so it wasn't much of a surprise to see none of them practicing on Thursday. However, two players who did practice on Wednesday were also held out: tackle Duane Brown (knee/resting vet) and rookie wide receiver Penny Hart (knee). Cornerback Ugo Amadi, working his way back from a hamstring injury that kept him out of the previous two games, was a full participant during Thursday's practice, positive news for a banged up Seahawks secondary.

Wednesday's Injury Report

Another important NFC West test comes vs. the Los Angeles Rams this Sunday, and getting players healthy could be a critical factor for Seattle, particularly in the secondary. While most of the names on Wednesday's injury report were consistent with what we've seen in recent days and weeks, the list is still 21 players long. From a glass half full perspective, nine of those were full participants in practice. Still, the number is significant when compared to the Rams who only listed four names on Wednesday's report.

Cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin (concussion/hamstring) and Quinton Dunbar (knee) did not practice, and decisions on both players for this Sunday sound unlikely to be made until later this week. "He's running some. We'll see how he progresses through the week," head coach Pete Carroll said about Griffin during his Wednesday press conference. "If he has a chance to get back, we won't know until the end." The Seahawks do expect to receive some help in the secondary with the return of defensive back Ugo Amadi, who missed the last two games with a hamstring injury. Another boost may come in the form of defensive tackle Damon Harrison, signed to Seattle's practice squad in early October. "Really good chance he'll be out playing," Carroll said of Harrison, who is the likely option if defensive tackle Bryan Mone, nursing an ankle injury suffered on Sunday, is unable to go. "I'm counting on it. Hopefully he has a good week and we put it together right and it'll work out."

Running back is another position to monitor as the week progresses. Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde have both missed the previous two games, and their status for Sunday's game remains uncertain, though Carroll suggested Carson was closer to returning than Hyde. "Chris is ahead of Carlos coming back. He's going to run today and tomorrow and see how he handles that. I can't tell you anything more than that right now. I wish I could," Carroll said. Another notable member of the offensive unit not practicing today was center Ethan Pocic, out with a concussion. That would be significant most weeks, but especially as the Seahawks prepare to face All-Pro and two-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald.
