Bobby Wagner questionable for matchup with Rams

The Seahawks spent the week monitoring the condition of two injured linebackers and one of them is a better bet to play on Sunday than the other.

Bobby Wagner is likelier to be in the lineup against the Rams. Wagner is listed as questionable due to the hamstring injury that knocked him out of last weekend’s loss to the Seahawks and kept him from practicing on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

If Wagner does play, it’s unlikely that K.J. Wright will join him in trying to stop Jared Goff, Todd Gurley and company. Wright is doubtful to play after landing in the concussion protocol as a result of a head injury suffered against Jacksonville.

Terence Garvin and D.J. Alexander would be in line for more playing time if both linebackers are out. The Seahawks also promoted Paul Dawson from the practice squad this week.

Safety Kam Chancellor remains out for Seattle and defensive tackle Nazair Jones is also listed as doubtful due to an ankle injury.

  1. No Wagner, no win. The defense is decimated with injuries and without Wagner, the only chance we have on Sunday is for the offense to put up a ton of points. It’s in Seattle, so there’s a chance, but it’s a tall order to go up against a great offense with half of your defensive starters out. I just hope it doesn’t come down to depending on Walsh to make a field goal.

  2. Losing Wagner is about when the Jags started running down their throat.

    Been a real tough year for injuries. Hardly recognize that defense out there. Seemed like a pre-season game last week after K.J. and Wagner both went down in the middle.

  3. Who cares, the seahawks are the leagues most overrated team this year, nowhere to go but downhill from here on out. The Jags have officially shown them the door.
