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 confident he'll be ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season, saying, "Oh yeah, for sure I will," when asked about that possibility, Gee Scott of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Lockett suffered a gruesome compound fracture of his left fibula and tibia during Week 16 of the regular season, sidelining him for the remainder of the campaign and requiring surgery heading into this offseason. Since his operation, Lockett has been working hard in his rehab, which caused coach Pete Carroll to project last month that the wideout would be healthy for the start of next season. Although he's still unable to run, Lockett recently confirmed Carroll's expectation, which is certainly an encouraging development regarding his fantasy stock.

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.

01/26/17DLDamontre MooreFootQUESTIONABLEMoore (foot) was placed on IR Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of UPI.com reports

Moore has sat out the Seahawks past two games due to his foot injury after missing time earlier in the season with the same injury. His injury isn't expected to linger into the offseason or next year and he should be able to return in full for spring practices

01/26/17RBTroymaine PopeAnkleQUESTIONABLEThe Seahawks placed Pope (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Pope previously missed just one game as a result of a high-ankle sprain, which he aggravated Sunday in Green Bay, according to head coach Pete Carroll. "He's got a pretty severe ankle sprain," Carroll confirmed Monday. Already without C.J. Prosise (shoulder) until at least the postseason, the Seahawks' backfield will be the domain of Thomas Rawls, with Alex Collins and Kelvin Taylor in reserve.

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.

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 LegQUESTIONABLEThomas (tibia) is recovering well and wearing a special shoe that places pressure on his injured leg, GQ.com reports. "I feel like I'm in a great place, especially being four weeks out," Thomas said.

Thomas ended the season on injured reserve due to a broken left tibia, an injury that apparently forced the All-Pro safety to contemplate retirement. However, that notion has since been put to rest. Instead, he's focused on returning to full strength and was recently given a special shoe that fits around his cast and allows him to place about 25-percent pressure on the leg. Thomas wouldn't have been prescribed this specialized, pressure-bearing appendage if the fractured bone hadn't been healing correctly, so by all accounts it appears he's progressing nicely down the road to recovery.

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) is expected to achieve full health in advance of OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Prosise's rookie season was characterized by injury, as he dealt with a hip flexor in the offseason program, was hampered by a hamstring concern in the preseason, missed four games after suffering a chipped bone in his right hand in Week 1, and spent the Seahawks' final eight outings (including playoffs) tending to a broken scapula. When healthy, though, he flashed between Weeks 7 and 11, racking up 29 carries for 170 yards and one touchdown, which he supplemented with 16 receptions (on 18 targets) for 195 yards. With such production on his professional ledger, Prosise is poised to serve as a change-of-pace option, at worst, behind Thomas Rawls in 2017, but the potential exists for an elevated role due to Rawls' own injury history.

01/15/17TEBrandon WilliamsConcussionQUESTIONABLEWilliams has been ruled out of Saturday's divisional-round contest in Atlanta due to a concussion, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Williams was removed in the first half but wasn't downgraded to out until well after halftime. In any case, losing Williams merely hurts the Seahawks' depth at tight end, as Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson occupy to the top-2 spots of the positional group.

(Updated 01/14/2017)
01/14/17DBDeShawn SheadKneeQUESTIONABLEShead (knee) is doing well in rehab but isn't expected back for the start of the 2017 season, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Shead had surgery to repair his torn ACL in January. It would take a near superhuman recovery for him to return for the start of the 2017 season, but the Seahawks are hopeful that he'll be able to play at some point during the year.
