03/01/17DBKam ChancellorAnkleQUESTIONABLEChancellor (ankle) is walking on his ankle one week after having bone spurs removed, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Chancellor had minor ankle surgery last week and isn't expected to be held out of offseason practices. He appears to be on track with his recovery to this point and shouldn't be limited with the injury much longer.

02/14/17DLCliff AvrilAbdomenQUESTIONABLEAvril underwent surgery after seeing a 'core injuries speciallist' Tuesday, Conor Orr of Around the NFL reports.

The specific type of surgery has not yet been clarified, but the fact that it had not been heard about until after completion suggests that it was not anything major. Avril was third in the league with 11.5 sacks in 2016 and figures to be a disruptive force for the Seahawks again in 2017 opposite Michael Bennett on the defensive line.

01/27/17DBMohammed SeisayAchillesQUESTIONABLESeisay (Achilles) resided on injured reserve for the entire 2016 season, The Seattle Times reports.

After landing in Seattle during the summer of 2015 via a trade with the Lions, Seisay missed each of the past two seasons due to injury. Both lost seasons were due to separate and unrelated injuries, however, as he missed the 2015 campaign due to a torn labrum but this past year due to a concern with his Achilles tendon. He's now set to enter the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent.

01/26/17DLTavaris BarnesUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEBarnes spent the year on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury.

Barnes was waived with an injury designation in August and landed on the Seahawks IR after clearing waivers. He'll have a chance to make the tail end of the roster in 2017 as a special teams player and depth defender.

01/26/17RBBrandon CottomAchillesQUESTIONABLEThe Seahawks waived/injured Cottom (Achilles) on Saturday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

During Wednesday's training camp practice, Cottom sustained a potential Achilles tear. The Seahawks' move Saturday seems to confirm those fears, but the fullback/tight end will land on their injured reserve list, if he clears waivers.

01/26/17DBStanley Jean-BaptisteShoulderQUESTIONABLEJean-Baptiste (shoulder) is expected to have a chance at a roster spot in 2017 after spending 2016 on injured reserve, Stephen Cohen of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.

Jean-Baptiste was waived with an injury designation and placed on IR after he cleared waivers in August. The team expects him to compete for a depth secondary and special teams role in 2017.

01/26/17DLQuinton JeffersonKneeQUESTIONABLEJefferson was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday after injuring his knee in practice last week.

Jefferson's injury is serious enough to require surgery, but his absence shouldn't have much of an impact as he appeared in just three games and recorded one tackle this season. Defensive end Malliciah Goodman was signed to the 53-man roster to fill the vacant spot.

01/26/17WRTyler LockettLegQUESTIONABLELockett (leg) is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery and should be ready to go for Week 1, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.

There's been plenty of optimism that Lockett, who's on the mend from a compound fracture to his left fibula suffered in late January, will be ready to go for the start of the 2017 campaign, and this report only reinforces that notion. However, there doesn't seem to be any certainty in regard to his return date. Seattle enters the offseason program with the starting job opposite Doug Baldwin "wide open," according to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia, but Lockett likely won't even have a shot if he's out of commission most of the summer. Thus, the third-year wideout has plenty of incentive to return to the field as quick as possible in order to join Paul Richardson, Jermaine Kearse and potentially a draft pick or two for what could evolve into a heated competition for the No. 2 wide receiver spot.

01/26/17RBTre MaddenUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEMadden was waived by the Seahawks Saturday, Adam Caplan of the ESPN reports.

The 22-year-old back signed with the Seahawks in May as an undrafted free agent. Madden was eyeing a role at fullback with the club, but the team has ultimately decided to part ways with the USC product.

(Updated 08/06/2016)
01/26/17RBTroymaine PopeAnkleQUESTIONABLEPope (ankle), an exclusive rights free agent, was tendered by the Seahawks, 247Sports.com reports.

Pope finished the 2016 campaign on injured reserve, but when healthy, the explosive tailback will compete for slotting on the depth chart behind Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise (shoulder).

(Updated 03/12/2017)
01/26/17TERonnie ShieldsAchillesQUESTIONABLEThe Seahawks waived/injured Shields (Achilles) on Saturday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

The tight end room in Seattle has been devastated by injury in the early days of training camp, as Shields, Cooper Helfet (foot), and Brandon Cottom (Achilles) were all waived Saturday. If Shields passes through waivers unclaimed, the Seahawks will have the opportunity to place him on injured reserve.

(Updated 08/06/2016)
01/26/17WRTyler SlavinUndisclosedQUESTIONABLESlavin ended the season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury.

Slavin joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent last offseason and was added to injured reserve after clearing waivers in the preseason. He'll look to stay healthy and make the roster as a depth receiver and special teams player in 2017.

01/26/17DLGarrison SmithObliqueQUESTIONABLESmith (oblique) was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Smith has been on the injury report for the past week with the injury, but the team wasn't optimistic about the defensive tackles return and ultimately decided to would be best to end his season. In three games this season, the 25-year-old racked up five tackles (one solo). The Seahawks signed Sealver Siliga on Tuesday to replace Smith on the depth chart.

01/26/17TEJoe SommersUndisclosedQUESTIONABLESommers spent the season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury.

Sommers was waived with an injury designation in the preseason and was moved to IR after he cleared waivers. He'll look to catch on with Seattle as a depth tight end and special teams player in 2017.

01/26/17DBEarl ThomasLower LegQUESTIONABLEHead coach Pete Carroll said Thomas (leg) is way ahead of schedule in his recovery from a broken tibia, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports.

Thomas suffered the injury in Week 13 and was placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter. He mentioned the possibility of retirement on his Twitter account in December, and while broken tibias do require a lengthy rehab process, Thomas has apparently moved past any thought of hanging up the cleats. Though he may be absent from the offseason program and limited in training camp, he seems to be on track for Week 1.

01/26/17RBWill TukuafuConcussionQUESTIONABLEThe Seahawks placed Tukuafu (concussion) on injured reserve Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Tukuafu has been sidelined since sustaining a concussion in Week 13. With his season over, Marcel Reese will now serve as the lead blocker for Thomas Rawls.

01/17/17DBRichard ShermanKnee - MCLQUESTIONABLEAccording to coach Pete Carroll, Sherman played through an MCL injury over the second half of this season, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Sherman was regularly given days off from practice over the past couple months, which, in hindsight, could've been related to his knee problem. While Carroll revealed Sherman carried an MCL injury, he didn't reveal the exact nature of the ailment or how it would be treated this offseason. Regardless of his injury, Sherman didn't miss a game this season, and finished with 58 tackles, 13 pass deflections and four interceptions.

01/16/17RBC.J. ProsiseShoulderQUESTIONABLEProsise (shoulder) will face increased competition in the backfield after the Seahawks signed Eddie Lacy (ankle) to a one-year contract, The Seattle Times reports.

Prosise was already set to compete with Thomas Rawls, who may end up being the real loser in this equation. Prosise's pass-catching ability and quickness should ensure him of a key role in the offense if he stays healthy, whereas Rawls likely will compete with Lacy for early-down work. It's also worth noting Lacy is far from a sure thing -- he's still recovering from ankle surgery and reportedly has put on a lot of weight (again). Prosise, meanwhile, is expected to be ready for the start of OTAs in mid-to-late April, looking to build on a promising but injury-plagued rookie season.

01/15/17TEBrandon WilliamsConcussionQUESTIONABLEWilliams (concussion) signed with the Colts on Monday.

Williams arrives in Indianapolis after the team traded tight end Dwayne Allen earlier this offseason. With only Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope remaining at the position, Williams adds depth to the Colts' options, even though his four-year totals of six receptions for 80 yards are rather uninspiring.

(Updated 03/20/2017)
01/14/17DBDeShawn SheadKneeQUESTIONABLEShead (knee) re-signed Friday with the Seahawks on a one-year contract, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Shead had also attracted interest from the Bills in free agency, but with the Seahawks submitting a competitive offer, the cornerback agreed to return to the only team he's played with in his career. The 28-year-old's health is somewhat of a question mark heading into training camp, as he sustained a left ACL injury during the Seahawks' divisional playoff loss to the Falcons. If Shead is back at full strength for the start of the season, he'll likely serve in a backup capacity in the secondary.
