Seahawks Kam Chancellor looking forward to return after “a little break”

While there’s been understandable focus this week on sone of the continued personnel losses for the Seahawks due to injury, Seattle will also get one big player back this week — safety Kam Chancellor.

Chancellor missed the last two games with a groin injury, the first games he had missed since 2011. But as he talked to reporters while lacing up his cleats in the locker room prior to Thursday’s practice, he said he definitely plans to play against the Chiefs on Sunday.

Chancellor said he was close to being ready to go last Sunday against the Giants but that it was simply  a “last-minute” decision for him to sit out. ”

“Just seeing how I felt at the moment,” Chancellor said of a pre-game workout last Sunday. “If I was good to go I would play, if I wasn’t, I wouldn’t play. I just wasn’t ready.”

Chancellor wanted to make clear that he didn’t sit out with the idea of getting his entire body a little rest before what figures to be a grueling end of the season. He has also battled ankle and hip injuries this season and taking two weeks off should help everything feel a little better.

Chancellor, though, chuckled that a football player never feels 100 percent during a season.

“You never feel refreshed when you are in season,” he said. “You are in season, your body is in battle mode. But it definitely was a little break for me. I feel a little better than what it was. So I guess that will be a refreshment, feeing better. That’s about it.”

Chancellor said he suffered the groin injury in practice prior to the game against the Raiders on Nov. 2.

“Just sprinting,” he said. “Running full speed.”

Without Chancellor, Seattle started DeShawn Shead at strong safety against the Raiders and Jeron Johnson against the Giants.

Chancellor said it wasn’t necessarily weird watching, but that he was “just thinking about getting back and trying to nurse this injury and get back onto the field.”

He promises that’ll happen Sunday.
