Seattle, WA- Going into Week 2 of the NFL, there have been a lot of key injuries around the league and the Seahawks find themselves being one of the teams that have a lot of injuries that could potentially hurt them in the upcoming weeks.
Defensive end Ziggy Ansah is a game-time decision. At this moment head coach, Pete Carroll stated that he is almost ready to play. If it is not this week, it may be next week. “He practiced all week long,” Carroll said “He did all right, he practiced all week. He wasn’t limited at this point. He’s almost there, he may be there, we’ll find out, see if we can get him to play this week. He’s getting really close. If he doesn’t go this week, he certainly has a great chance for next week.”
Rookie DE L.J. Collier has been nursing an ankle injury since training camp and is close with making his debut in the NFL. L.J. is back,” Carroll said. “He’s ready to play in this game if we want to put him up, he can go. He had a great week, and that’s a really good return for him. He worked really hard, he maintained his conditioning through the rehab. He looked really well-conditioned in the practices, it wasn’t overburdening him at all. So in our mind, he can play, we’ve just got to see what the rotations would be if we put him up.”
Other noticeable injuries are: Tedric Thompson (hamstring), defensive tackle Poona Ford (calf), and Neiko Thorpe (hamstring).
The Seahawks are going against an elite defense in the Steelers and need all the help that they can get to get a victory.
