NFL injury report: Seahawks looking healthy heading into playoffs

USA TODAY Sports

Outside of a pair of faulty hamstrings, the Seahawks are pretty set for their visit to D.C.

The Seattle Seahawks are one of the healthier teams in the NFL heading into their first-round match-up with the Washington Redskins next Sunday.

Backup CB Walter Thurmond III (hamstring) is the only one dealing with a truly serious injury, but with Brandon Browner expected back from his suspension this week, secondary depth is hardly an issue. Still, it's a bit surprising at this point that the Seahawks haven't placed Thurmond on I.R. after reports last week hinted that he's likely done for the year.

LB Leroy Hill is also battling a hamstring injury, but his seems far less severe. While he did sit out Sunday, Hill was able to get in a limited practice Friday and even went through pregame warmups, which likely signals he's close to returning. Regardless, Malcolm Smith has hardly been much of a downgrade in fill-in duty so it's not like Seattle's defense will be less potent without Hill if he's unable to go.

In other injury news, offensive lineman Breno Giacomini returned from his elbow injury this week after being listed as questionable on Friday's injury report. Rams' DE Chris Long did embarrass the big tackle on multiple occasions though so it's possible he might have rushed back a bit too early.
