Wounded and battered Seahawks set to take on Chiefs.

A wounded and battered Seattle Seahawks (8-6) team will need to patch and strap it up when it takes on the Kansas City Chiefs (11-3) who have the NFL’s number one ranked offense led by super sophomore quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes leads the NFL with 45 touchdowns passes and 4,543 passing yards.

In most weeks stopping Mahomes and the Chiefs offense is a monumental task. Stopping the Chiefs with the back of your defense ailing, you long snapper suffering from an illness, no healthy right guard and your left tackle hampered by a groin injury is well just north of Mission Impossible.

SEAHAWKS COMPLETE INJURY REPORT

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

With Tedric Thompson out the Seahawks will look to team up Delano Hill with Bradley McDougal on the back end of the defense. The return of K.J. Wright and linebacker will be a tremendous boost for the defense.

Tight end Ed Dickson is a possible replacement for long snapper Tyler Ott. The biggest question. While Jarran Reed and Shaquill Griffin should be able to play, the biggest concern will be at right guard. Jordan Simmons was placed on injured reserve and the hope for the Seahawks is that J.D. Fluker will be ready after missing the last two games. Ethan Pocic filled in for Simmons for part of the 49ers game and his performance was mixed. Pocic had two drive stopping penalties called against him. The Seahawks had 14 penalties in the game against the 49ers so the penalties were team-wide.
