Five Seahawks Questionable For Week 18 Game vs. Rams

The Seahawks head into the weekend with five players listed as questionable, four of them due to injury, and one, defensive end Quinton Jefferson, due to illness.

Listed as questionable are receiver Tyler Lockett, who has what Pete Carroll called a leg contusion, and who, as of earlier this week, is determined to play, per Carroll; guard Phil Haynes, who left last week's game with an ankle injury; guard Damien Lewis, who appeared on the injury report Thursday with an ankle injury; and safety Ryan Neal, who has missed the past two games with a knee injury.

Running back Travis Homer, who has a high ankle sprain, is doubtful to play.

Several other players on the injury report during the week do not have game status designations, meaning they are good to go, a list that includes outside linebacker Uchenna Nwosu, running back Kenneth Walker III, running back DeeJay Dallas, tight end Noah Fant, defensive end Poona Ford, nose tackle Al Woods, outside linebacker Bruce Irvin, center Austin Blythe and right tackle Abraham Lucas. While most of those players were on the field last week, Lucas will be returning following a one-game absence due to a knee injury.

Thursday Injury Report

The Seahawks once again had a pretty lengthy list of players not practicing on Thursday, though a few players did get back on the field after being out a day earlier, with tight end Noah Fant listed as limited, and defensive ends Quinton Jefferson and Poona Ford participating fully.

Not including players who were given rest days, the Seahawks had four starters not practicing: running back Kenneth Walker III, receiver Tyler Lockett, outside linebacker Uchenna Nwosu and safety Ryan Neal. Walker has practiced sparingly in recent weeks due to an ankle injury but has played in each of the past three games, so his absence shouldn't be seen as a sign that his availability is in doubt. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Lockett is expecting to play despite a shin injury, while no decision will be made on Neal, who has missed two games with a knee injury, until late in the week. Nwosu did not suffer any obvious injury during Sunday's game, nor one announced in the press box, so more information on him will have to wait until Carroll speaks with the media on Friday.

Right tackle Abraham Lucas, who is trying to return from a knee injury after a one-game absence, was limited for the second straight day, while guard Damien Lewis was new to the report, listed as limited with an ankle injury.
