Seahawks vs. Giants Injury Report: Marcus Trufant Did Not Practice

The Seattle Seahawks injury report has been released, and it is utterly and absolutely terrifying. Christian Caple of Seattlepi.com reports that cornerback Marcus Trufant has a back ailment. He sat out practice today, which is always the danger zone.

Trufant has to play to counter the Eli Manning-Hakeem Nicks connection. Brandon Browner would be pushed into primary cornerback responsibilities, and Browner probably doesn't have the coverage skills of Trufant to really challenge Nicks one-on-one. Also it would press the young  Richard Sherman and Walter Thurmond into service, and neither is really ready to handle starting snaps.

Other injury updates are as follows, many courtesy of John Boyle of the Everette Herald:
