Pierre-Louis sustained a hamstring injury last Sunday against the Patriots and was unable to practice this week. As a reserve linebacker, his absence shouldn't be a huge problem for the Seahawks' stout defensive unit to overcome.
Pierre-Louis came out of Sunday's win over the Patriots with a hamstring injury, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.
Lewis had previously been dealing with an ankle injury, but had seemingly recovered from it heading into Week 10. The severity of the hamstring issue is unknown at this time, so his status will need to be monitored throughout the week. Cassius Marsh would presumably be in line for a start at outside linebacker if Pierre-Louis is forced to miss any time.
Pierre-Louis was able to log full practices on Friday and Saturday, indicating that he will be able to slide in to his regular role as a backup outside linebacker for Monday's contest against the Bills.
Pierre-Louis was sidelined last week versus the Saints and also missed Thursday's practice session, so this development suggests he should be able to give it a go for Monday Night Football.
Pierre-Louis (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Saints.
Pierre-Louis, a second-string linebacker, won't play for a second consecutive game. Jordan Tripp and Dewey McDonald are consequently in line for additional snaps.
