Seahawks injury report for Thursday: Lynch remains on list, but added now with a rib injury; and looks like Wright back to the middle

Running back Marshawn Lynch was among six Seahawks who sat out practice Thursday, listed as sitting out with calf and rib injuries.

Lynch sat out on Wednesday with a calf injury, something he was also listed with last week. The rib is new. Coach Pete Carroll does not speak to the media on Thursdays so we did not get additional info on Lynch’s injuries.

Also sitting out today were LB Bobby Wagner, who has already been declared out for the Kansas City game; G James Carpenter (ankle), LB Brock Coyle, CB Marcus Burley, CB Jeremy Lane (groin).

Listed as a limited participant today was TE Luke Willson (ankle).

And listed as full participants were DE Michael Bennett (rest day Wednesday), S Kam Chancellor (groin), TE Cooper Helfet (knee) and LB Malcolm Smith (groin).

With Coyle out for another day and Smith now back, it sounds like K.J. Wright will again move to middle linebacker with Smith and Kevin Pierre-Louis sharing the weakside job.

Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn addressed that after practice Thursday.

He said first, when asked about adding Smith back that “we’ll rotate him and KPL in there as well in our base and our nickel package—so both of those guys will be a factor.”

And asked about Wright again being used in the middle, he said: “Yes—that’s where we’ve used K.J more when we need to in our base packages inside. I can’t say enough about K.J and his versatility—not only can he play Mike but he can play Will. It’s rare to have a guy that can have that versatility—not only week to week, but he can do it in a game if need be. So I have a lot of respect and appreciation for what he brings to our defense.”

That Lane and Burley out Thursday leaves in question how Seattle’s nickelback situation will unfold against the Chiefs. The Seahawks could use Steven Terrell there —- he stepped in when Burley was injured against Dallas.

As for the Chiefs, here is their official injury report.
