Seahawks final injury report for Philadelphia: Unger out, Helfet doubtful, Lane questionable

Seattle heads to Philadelphia with a lot of momentum and few real injuries among its current active roster.

Seattle’s final injury report for the Eagles game, released Friday afternoon, listed just three players as in danger of missing Sunday’s game against a 9-3 Philadelphia team.

Listed as out is center Max Unger, battling knee/ankle injuries. It will be the third game Unger has missed since being hurt against Kansas City. Lemuel Jeanpierre will again start in his place.

Listed as doubtful is tight end Cooper Helfet, battling a sprained ankle suffered at the end of the win over the Cardinals, could miss a second straight game. If Helfet cannot go, then the tight end duties again fall to Tony Moeaki and Luke Willson, with the likes of Garry Gilliam also being available for use as an eligible tackle.

Listed as questionable is cornerback Jeremy Lane, who is battling a gluteus injury that caused him to sit out against the 49ers on Thanksgiving. If Lane can’t go, then Seattle would again likely use Byron Maxwell as the nickel corner with Tharold Simon entering the game and playing outside in nickel situations.

Three players are listed as probable after being on the injury report at some point this week: defensive end Michael Bennett (toe), cornerback Byron Maxwell (shin) and running back Marshawn Lynch (back).

Also, coach Pete Carroll said after practice today that the team has yet to fill the open spot on its 53-man roster but likely will on Saturday (a player needs to be added 24 hours in advance of the game to be eligible to play).

However, at this point it’s likely to be a player promoted from the practice squad who would likely be inactive on game day, with the Seahawks being as healthy as they are.
