Seahawks vs. Lions injury report: Jason Jones doubtful, Doug Baldwin, Byron Maxwell out

The Seattle Seahawks are expected to be without a few key contributors Sunday afternoon with DT Jason Jones listed as doubtful and WR Doug Baldwin and CB Byron Maxwell already announced as out.

Jones, one of the team's strongest interior pass rushers, is dealing with an ankle injury but did travel with the team, according to the Everett Herald's John Boyle. Here's what head coach Pete Carroll told the paper about the possibility of being without Jones:

"It's a really big deal if we can't get him out there. We're starting to learn how to rush together and we have a chance to get pretty good here as we grow together. Jason's a big deal, he's been involved in a lot of stuff. He's got two or three sacks, but he's been involved a bunch and been a factor...He's so long, he's got that kind of slither rush to him, sneaky."

As for the other two players that have already been ruled out, Baldwin is going to rest his high ankle sprain while Maxwell's hamstring issue will prevent him from contributing against the potent passing attack of the Lions.

For some good news, G John Moffitt is finally turning a corner with his knee injury after missing four games and is listed as questionable. Carroll shared that he isn't expected to instantly regain his starting job, even if Moffitt is ready to go Sunday.

RB Marshawn Lynch should be fine with his back injury too as he was given a probable tag. The Seahawks also have the option of activating CB Walter Thurmond from the PUP list this weekend so say tuned for additional updates about his status as the game draws closer.
