The Seattle Seahawks will take on the Atlanta Falcons this weekend as the team looks to move to .500 for the first time this season. Both teams are facing injuries this week, though the Falcons have been struck a little bit harder on this front. Linebacker Matt McCoy is dealing with two injuries while the Falcons missed their top receiver in practice on Wednesday, according to Seattle Pi's Chrisitan Caple.
Wide receiver Roddy White of the Falcons did not practice on Wednesday with a thigh injury. White is a central part of the Falcons pass attack and broke through last weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccanners with his biggest game of the season, racking up 140 yards on nine receptions. His status for Sunday is unclear at this point, but the Falcons will be at a disadvantage if they have to play without him.
Linebacker Matt McCoy, one of the only Seahawks to be dealing with injuries this week, is actually dealing with multiple injuries. In addition to the head injury he suffered last weekend against the Arizona Cardinals, the linebacker is also working through a shoulder injury . This season, McCoy has started only one of the team's three games while recording 15 tackles. His status is uncertain as well at the moment.
Other Seahawks held out of practice today include safety Kam Chancellor (quadriceps) and cornerback Byron Maxwell (ankle). The Seahawks, at this point, appear to be in pretty good shape ahead of Sunday's home game.
