Injuries Major Concern For Seahawks Ahead of Sunday’s Clash With 49ers

Sunday’s game between the Seahawks and 49ers  will be decided by which coaching staff does the best job of getting their nonstarters ready to play. Both teams will be missing marquee players for the contest and will be relying on players who are unaccustomed to starting on a regular basis.

SEAHAWKS DECIMATED  BACKFIELD

According to head coach Pete Carroll rookie, DeeJay Dallas was given all of the reps early on during the week and was shut down the last few days of practice to conserve him for the game. Chris Carson ( foot),  Travis Homer ( knee ), and Carlos  Hyde  ( hamstring ) did not practice all week.

Carson will be a  game-time decision with  Homer and  Dallas likely to play on Sunday. Hyde was listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report and would be a major surprise if he plays.

DEFENSIVE BACK FIELD


 The defensive backfield will undergo some shuffling  Sunday with the news that  Shaquill Griffin will miss the game due to a  hamstring injury. The injury report lists hamstring and concussion as the ailments for keeping Griffin from participating in Sunday’s game.  When asked Carroll clarified that it was the hamstring that kept him out for this week.   Strong Safety  Jamal Adams suffered a setback this week when he came down with an illness on top of his ongoing groin issue. As a result,   Adams did not practice this week and is listed as questionable. While holding out hope Carroll was not overly optimistic that Adams would play without practicing.

The good news for the Seahawks is that  Safety Ryan Neal ( hamstring ) is available to play. Safety Ugo Amadi ( hamstring)  will be a game-time decision.

GETTING THE MOST OF  BACK UP PLAYERS

Offensive guard Mike Lupati ( back)  and  DE  Benson  Mayoma  ( ankle ) round out the Seahawks injury report.  Mayoma is listed as questionable and could see some game minutes while  Lupati  ( questionable ) most likely won’t see the field.  Wide receiver Deebo Samuel ( hamstring) and running back Jeffrey Wilson ( ankle ) are listed as out for Sunday’s game.

 The Seahawks and 49ers rank one and two when it comes to most injured players this season. Despite the injuries both teams have  been able to have back up players produce when called on
