Among the many impressive things about the 4-0 start for the Seahawks, that they've been able to do so while managing so many injuries is high on the list. And while the team managed to leave Miami relatively unscathed after a 31-23 win, the injury report remains lengthy. Check back daily for updates as the Seahawks prepare for their Week 5 matchup vs. the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

In addition to Jamal Adams being ruled out early in the week, the Seahawks will also head into the weekend with five players listed as questionable for Sunday night's game: cornerback Quinton Dunbar, left guard Mike Iupati, linebacker Jordyn Brooks, safety Lano Hill and running back Carlos Hyde. Other than Iupati, all of those players missed last week's game with their respective injuries.

Seattle's long injury list got a bit shorter on Thursday, with several signs of progress from players throughout. Tackle Duane Brown (knee) and corner Quinton Dunbar (knee) were participated in a limited capacity after not practicing at all on Wednesday, and linebacker K.J. Wright participated in full on Thursday after being held out with an illness yesterday. Rookie guard Damien Lewis (ankle), who played in last week's win in Miami despite an ankle injury that knocked him out of the previous game, was limited on Wednesday but participated fully on Thursday. Defensive tackle Jarran Reed (finger), cornerback Tre Flowers (hand) and wide receiver David Moore (ankle) were not listed at all on Thursday after showing up on Wednesday's report.

Out of the 26 names listed on Wednesday, only one Seahawks player appeared, at least from injury report standards, to take a step backwards. That would be linebacker Bobby Wagner (ribs), who went from a full participant yesterday to receiving limited snaps today.

Minnesota's report had the same 10 players listed on Thursday, though CB Holton Hill (foot) went from limited to not participating at all, and WR Adam Thielen (shoulder), a limited participant on Wednesday, was a full participant today.

A total of 26 Seahawks were listed on Wednesday's report, though several appear to be nursing some of the same injuries they've had dating back to last week or even earlier. Only a few players listed today were not listed last week: LB K.J. Wright, LB Bobby Wagner and LB Shaquem Griffin. Wright (illness), did not participate in practice, while Wagner (ribs) and Griffin (shoulder) were both full participants. Still, having three linebackers all dealing with new ailments may explain the signing of linebacker Michael Divinity to the practice squad, one of several roster moves made Wednesday.

The Seahawks will be without All-Pro safety Jamal Adams for the second week in a row, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday. Adams suffered a groin injury in Seattle's Week 3 win vs. Dallas. After missing the previous two games, cornerback Neiko Thorpe was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday.
