Seahawks have a rash of injuries

Contributing in 2008 and 2009 to the struggles of the Seattle Seahawks was an extensive laundry list of injuries.

This year, it hasn’t been quite as bad.  Until now. 

Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times has the details about an infirmary report that knocked quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and other key players out of practice on Wednesday — and that could knock some of them out of Sunday’s showdown with the Giants.

    Not to take anything away from the Raiders, (who are the most underrated team in football btw) but Seattle’s injuries started before now. They went to Oakland with many starters out on both sides of the ball. Hopefully they can get healthy…especially Okung. The offense literally hinges upon him. For those out there who haven’t witnessed this guy play healthy, he is a friggin’ monster.

    Would you rather have the injury list BEFORE the Raider game?

    Is it my imagination or is this a horrific year for injuries – especially to key players. Look at the Pack and my beloved Colts for example. Many guys who were being counted on are gone. And key reserves are banged up as well. Just seems worse than other years.

    @permissions denied:
    Okung was rolled up by his own team in both injuries…it’s not HIS fault a 300+lb guy rolled up his ankle while he was engaged in a block. try watching the games before commenting. 100% coincedence.

    The Seahawks were going to lose anyway … might as well save the starters for a game they can actually win.

    The seahawks have bounced back from losses this year very well. We got our starting corner back (jennings or thrumond) and as long as Okung can play and Hasselbeck can go the seahawks will have a chance in this one. Opi I mean, Eli is scared of the west coast, why else would he not want to play in San Diego? Really you’d rather live and be a pro athlete in New York? Go get your head checked now and after you get concussed by Chris Clemmons Eli

    Charlie Whitehurst is starting.
    Hasselbeck scratched for what we are reporting to be “Giantitis.”
    This is our 6th QB we’ve knocked out and we didnt even touch him!

    Are you serious?? Do they even have televisions or telephones in Seattle? A professional athlete WOULDN’T want to play in the endorsement capital of the planet?? Yeah, right. Better to play in SD where home games are blacked out.
    That’s about the dumbest thing I’ve ever read on PFT. And believe me, there are a LOT of dumb things written here.
    Good luck keeping Whitehurst upright on Sunday

    “You” didn’t touch him because “Oakland” changed the lineup for you, moron. Give credit where it’s due.
