Seahawks injury report for Tuesday

The Seahawks’ injury report for Tuesday looked exactly the same as it did for Monday.

Five players were again  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).

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

Irvin spoke to reporters afterward and said he plans to play against the Packers.

The Seahawks will release a final report tomorrow that will also include projections as to whether they will play — doubtful, questionable, ect. But at this point, the players listed as not participating all week are probably pretty good bets to not see action against the Packers.

So, as we wrote here yesterday,  if Jeanpierre can’t play, the backup center role would apparently 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.

I’d expect Lane to play given that he was at least out there again. But if not, Seattle’s options at nickelback would include using newly-acquired Marcus Burley or maybe using Byron Maxwell inside and having someone else play outside.

With Simon likely out, the team may have to use DeShawn Shead more at cornerback — in fact, he’s listed by the team as a corner though he’s also listed as the backup free safety to Earl Thomas.
