Morgan will reportedly undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia on Tuesday and is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks after that. Thus, he's a candidate to return from IR later on in the season. In the meantime, Cassius Marsh projects to see an uptick in playing time.
Morgan was questionable heading into the contest due to a hip injury but will give it a go Sunday. The injury will be something to keep an eye on, with Cassius Marsh the likely candidate to see increased action should Morgan have his snap count limited.
Morgan takes over the spot vacated by Bruce Irvin when he signed this offseason with the Raiders. Morgan has been around a while (UFA 2011), but this is his first starting job. He'll likely be used more on running down with a pass rusher brought in on passing downs. He likely won't get enough opportunities for tackles to be consider as an IDP.
Morgan will be available for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Vikings, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Morgan saw a specialist for a groin injury earlier in the week, but as expected, it's nothing too serious. He's expected to be available for Thursday's outing with the Vikings, which means he should be over the injury moving forward. Morgan currently projects to take on a starter's role during the upcoming season and he doesn't appear to be in danger of missing Week 1.
Morgan is dealing with a groin issue, and saw a doctor in Philadelphia Monday as a result, Liz Mathews of ESPN Seattle reports.
Even though he saw a doctor regarding the issue, head coach Pete Carroll expects him to play in Thursday's matchup with Vikings. You would expect the Seahawks to play it cautious with the USC product if they were concerned about the injury, so it does not appear to be too serious. He still projects to be the Week 1 starter at the left outside linebacker position.
