Report: Seahawks battling the flu

The Seahawks aren’t completely healthy heading into tonight’s game with the Vikings.

Several Seahawks players are battling the flu, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Wide receivers Tyler Lockett and David Moore are among those who have been sick.

However, the Seahawks didn’t list any players with the flu on the injury report, so it apparently isn’t serious enough to keep them from practice or threaten their playing status.

The Patriots were also battling the flu last week, and they looked sluggish in Sunday night’s loss to the Texans. The Seahawks will hope to avoid a similar fate.

  1. I sincerely wish Russel Wilson and the Hawks all the best (except for tonight), but I still hope Locket and Wilson shared a water bottle in practice this week.

  2. Vegas trying to get some more money to come in on the Vikes before game time! I ain’t buying it

  3. On the Seahawk’s Website they have the injury reports/practice participation. It showed for several days “illness” for several players.
    Flowers, Ford, Griffin(#49), Lockett, Moore & Roos

  4. Thielen, Smith, and others hurting. Nobody gonna take it easy on you just because you ain’t 100%. Man up and play whoever mans up against you. However, just for the record, I plan on calling in sick to work tomorrow.

  5. Torn on this one. A Vikings loss is obviously huge for the Pack, but if they win, that 12/23 game is going to be one for the ages.

  6. “Thielen, Smith, and others are hurting”


    I do believe Harrison Smith is going to play though. There is a difference between being hurt and being injured.

    Thielen was cleared to practice by doctors and it appeared he was ready to play and he decided he can’t go. This should tell you all you need to know about Adam Thielen.

    Nearly every player in the NFL is banged up and hurt at this point in the season. Man up and get out there and play for your teammates if you are just hurt and not injured.
