Seahawks defensive tackle Tony McDaniel is in danger of missing Saturday’s Wild Card playoff game with the Detroit Lions after sustaining a concussion in Sunday’s regular season finale against the San Francisco 49ers.

McDaniel did not participate in practice for the Seahawks on Wednesday. Seattle has just one more full practice on Thursday before Saturday night’s kickoff with the Lions. It leaves very little time for him to clear concussion protocol in time to play against Detroit.

McDaniel is one of the key parts of Seattle’s run defense.

The Lions had four players limited in practice on Wednesday: receiver Andre Roberts (shoulder), center Travis Swanson (concussion), tackle Riley Reiff (hip) and linebacker DeAndre Levy (knee). Roberts did not take part in practice with the team on Tuesday.

Reiff and Swanson both did not play in Detroit’s finale against Green Bay on Sunday night.

  1. Seattle can miss McDaniel for one game. Reed their 2nd round pic, Jenkins who was picked up for depth in Nov along with combinations of Bennett and Clark can adjust for his absence.
    Having all pro LB’s like Wagner and Wright along with Chancellor at SS will help fill in the the gaps for the run defense as well.

    ————————————
    McDaniel is the Mebane of this year. He plugs up so many holes in the Run defense. He’s the unsung hero of this Defense. He allows our linebackers and everyone to make plays. Not saying Reed isn’t good but McDaniel will be missed if he’s not in.
