Seahawks injury report for Monday

The Seahawks released their first official injury report of the season today in advance of Thursday’s opener against the Green Bay Packers.

Five players were listed as not participating:  TE Cooper Helfet (knee), RB Christine Michael (hamstring), G Lemuel Jeanpierre (neck), LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring) and CB Tharold Simon (knee).

Listed as having limited participation were: WR Kevin Norwood (ankle), CB Jeremy Lane (groin) and LB Bruce Irvin (groin).

The one new injury is that of Jeanpierre’s. Unclear when or how that happened.

While listed as a guard, he is also the backup center. If he can’t play, the backup center role would go to Stephen Schilling, the former Bellevue High star who made the roster this year after signing as a free agent in March after not being tendered by the San Diego Chargers.

Norwood and Irvin are each on the road back after missing most or all of the pre-season. Lane is also a key one as he is the starting nickelback, but was injured in the preseason game against San Diego. Seattle’s options at nickelback would be newly-acquired Marcus Burley or maybe using Byron Maxwell inside and having someone else play outside. Simon’s injury, though, further thins the ranks there if he can’t play. That could force DeShawn Shead into a role at cornerback. He’s listed as a safety but has played ample cornerback in his career and in the preseason.

— Meanwhile, here is Green Bay’s injury report for Monday. The biggest news is the loss of center JC Tretter who will be replaced by rookie Corey Linsley. That happened last week, but worth repeating.
