Seahawks injury report: Add J.R. Sweezy to the list

Seattle’s injury report for Wednesday includes one new name — starting right guard J.R. Sweezy. Sweezy was listed as not practicing due to an ankle injury.

He joins two other offensive linemen who were already known to be out for Wednesday’s practice — center Max Unger (knee/ankle) and left tackle Russell Okung (chest).

Sweezy was apparently injured in Sunday’s game against the 49ers, though he did not come out of the game and was not mentioned by coach Pete Carroll either after the game or in later sessions with the media. So it’s unclear how serious the injury to Sweezy is and whether this is something that would hold him out against Arizona Sunday.

Alvin Bailey is listed as the backup to Sweezy but is already being expected to fill in at left tackle for Okung. Another option, especially if Unger were to return, could be using Lemuel Jeanierre there as he started four games at right guard in 2011. Garry Gilliam, a rookie who is primarily a tackle, and rookie center Patrick Lewis are the only other offensive linemen on the 53-man roster.

Also out today were RB Marshawn Lynch (back/rest day), defensive end Demarcus Cobbs (ankle) and tight end Tony Moeaki (shoulder).

TE Cooper Helfet, looking to play for the first time in three games while battling a sprained ankle, was a full participant.

The list is below:
