McDougald only managed one limited practice this week, resulting in coach Pete Carroll labeling the safety a game-time decision for Sunday. The Seahawks were ultimately with how McDougald checked out in his pregame warmup, so the 27-year-old should be in line to fill his usual role as a starting safety alongside Tedric Thompson. Delano Hill would step in if McDougald suffers any in-game setbacks.
McDougald was held off the stat sheet last week when he suffered a knee injury in a 25-17 loss to the Chargers, marking the first time all season he failed to record at least four tackles. He then missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he came back Friday as a limited participant and now seems to be on track to play, according to Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune. Of course, we may not get word on a final decision until the Seahawks release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 EST kickoff. Delano Hill filled in at safety after McDougald was forced out of the game last week.
According to head coach Pete Carroll, McDougald (knee) is 'pretty sore' and likely will not practice much in advance of Sunday's game against the Rams, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
McDougald did not play in the second half of Seattle's loss to the Chargers in Week 9 due to his injured knee. At this point, the veteran safety's status for Sunday is uncertain, but his condition should clear up throughout the coming week of practice. If McDougald is forced to sit out Week 10, Akeem King is in line to fill in at strong safety for the Seahawks.
McDougald did not play during the second half of Sunday's 25-17 loss to the Chargers due to a sore knee, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
McDougald was questionable entering Sunday's tilt against Los Angeles, and left the field on multiple occasions before ultimately being held out for the second half of the Week 9 contest. The starting safety should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, and McDougald's participation in practice this week warrants close monitoring.
McDougald (knee) has returned to Sunday's game against the Chargers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
McDougald exited Sunday's contest due to a knee injury, but has retaken the field and appears unhindered. Expect McDougald to slot back into his role as Seattle's starting free safety.
