The Seattle Seahawks have been without linebacker Bobby Wagner (concussion), cornerback Jeremy Lane (ankle), defensive end Michael Bennett (knee) and offensive lineman K.J. Wright (hamstring).
It’s been a tough week for the Seahawks, and there’s no doubt the Seahawks are dealing with a lot of injuries.
Seattle had to make four changes from the team’s previous 10-man roster.
Running back Marshawn Lynch was inactive due to a concussion, cornerback Richard Sherman (knees) and defensive end Bobby Wagner were both questionable, and guard Gabe Jackson (hamstride) was limited to a walkthrough.
Coach Pete Carroll said that Wilson and the rest of the Seahawks were fine, but the team will be in need of some help.
“We need to make some tough calls this week,” Carroll said after practice on Thursday.
“So, we’ll be in that position again, I guess, this week, to be able to say that we’ve got some good guys that we’re going to have to get out there and we’ll find some ways to make it work for us.”
Seahawks’ Sherman (calf) and Wilson (cable) remain sidelined.
The Seahawks could still add to their injury report in the coming days.
Defensive tackle Jared Allen, who is recovering from surgery for a knee injury, did not practice Wednesday.
Receiver Ricardo Lockette (foot) did not participate.
The team will have to make a decision as to whether or not to make Lane (kleptomaniac) inactive or if the Seahawks would like to bring him back.
The NFL has not yet announced how the Seahawks will handle Wilson, but Carroll has said that they will not allow him to return until he’s fully healthy.
If the Seahawks decide to bring Wilson back, he will play in the opener on Oct. 6 against the New York Giants.
“I think they’re just trying to make the most of every opportunity that they get,” Carroll told reporters Wednesday.
“You’re looking at a team that’s still in the early stages of the season, and they’re trying to keep it fresh.
I think that’s a big part of it.”
