The Seattle Seahawks are dealing with a multitude of injuries this week ahead of Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders. Seven players sat out of today’s practice at the VMAC, including Kelly Jennings and his replacement, Walter Thurmond. The Seahawks are light at corner and the concussion Thurmond suffered on Sunday plunges the cornerback depth to extremely low levels.
The Seattle PI’s Greg Johns had his report from practice, noting the trouble in the secondary and the full injury list.
Also missing again Thursday were left tackle Russell Okung (ankle sprain), wide receiver Brandon Stokley (oblique strain), fullback Michael Robinson (hamstring) and linebacker Matt McCoy (hamstring)
Brandon Mebane also sat out, still dealing with a calf injury that’s hampered him for weeks. We’ll know more about the availability of all seven after Friday’s practice, but things aren’t looking good on the injury front for the Seahawks right now.
