10/09/17DLCliff AvrilNeckDOUBTFULAvril (neck) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

This is unsurprising after head coach Pete Carroll indicated earlier this week that Avril may be dealing with a more severe neck issue. Frank Clark will step in as starting right defensive end in his absence.

10/09/17DLMichael BennettFootQUESTIONABLEBennett sustained a plantar fascia injury during Sunday's victory over the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Bennett briefly exited Sunday's game in the second quarter but later returned and ultimately played the entire second half. Head coach Pete Carroll said his defensive end was simply "sore" Monday, so it doesn't sound as if Bennett is looking at any sort of absence. Supporting that notion is the fact the Seahawks have a bye in Week 6, which affords Bennett extra time to return to form.

10/09/17DLQuinton JeffersonHandOUTJefferson sustained a broken hand Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Jefferson suffered the injury early into his first practice since being re-signed from the Rams practice squad Monday, and he's likely to miss at least a month. As a result, the team could be forced to make another move for defensive line depth, with starter Cliff Avril (neck) looking at a prolonged absence as well.

10/09/17DBJeremy LaneGroinQUESTIONABLELane (groin) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Lane was listed as doubtful after being unable to practice this week, and his status beyond Sunday remains uncertain. Rookie Shaquill Griffin will likely start in his place at cornerback, and has performed well in similar circumstances earlier this season.

10/09/17RBC.J. ProsiseAnkleQUESTIONABLESeahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Monday during his radio appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle that he expects Prosise (ankle) to play in Week 7 against the Giants. "C.J's gonna come back next week, which it'll be fun to have him back in action," Carroll said.

After Prosise was held out of the Seahawks' Week 4 win over the Colts, Carroll was similarly optimistic that the running back would suit up for Sunday's eventual victory over the Rams, but that never came to fruition. In fact, Prosise ended up sitting out in all three of the Seahawks' practices during the past week, so he'll need to get in some reps on the field within the next two weeks -- Seattle is on bye in Week 6 -- to add further credence to Carroll's belief that he'll be in the backfield mix for the matchup with the Giants. While Prosise has been out the past two games, J.D. McKissic has stepped in as the team's primary pass catcher out of the backfield, logging four receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown through the air while adding six carries for 38 yards and another touchdown on the ground.

07/30/17DLMalik McDowellHeadOUTMcDowell (head) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Saturday.

His placement on the list ahead of the season opener means that he'll be ineligible to return to action until after Week 6. Even still, there's no guarantee McDowell will be ready by then and the Seahawks have yet to define any kind of role yet for the Michigan State product.

06/19/17RBMalcolm JohnsonUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEJohnson (undisclosed) was waived from the Seahawks' injured reserve Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Johnson landed on injured reserve last week after suffering an undisclosed injury in practice. Now that he's no longer tied to the Seahawks, the 2015 sixth-rounder can immediately begin looking for work elsewhere.
