The injury report for the Seattle Seahawks grew this afternoon, as cornerback Richard Sherman (illness) and defensive tackle Greg Scruggs (oblique) were added to the list on Thursday and did not practice.

In all, Seattle had eight players, including six starters, sit out practice because of injuries this afternoon.

But receiver Braylon Edwards (knee) returned to practice as a limited participant with the hope of playing against his former team, the New York Jets, on Sunday. Edwards had missed Seattle’s last two games.

Along with Sherman and Scruggs, players sitting out for a second straight day include running back Marshawn Lynch (wrist/back), offensive lineman James Carpenter (concussion), linebacker K.J. Wright (concussion), defensive tackle Clinton McDonald (groin), safety Kam Chancellor (quad) and defensive end Red Bryant (foot).

Defensive tackle Jason Jones (ankle) was a limited participant for a second straight day.

Receiver Doug Baldwin (ankle), offensive guard John Moffitt (knee) and center Max Unger (finger) were full participants.

For the Jets, running back Joe McKnight (ankle) did not practice today.

Defensive lineman Kendrick Ellis (knee), Linebacker Bart Scott (toe), offensive lineman Brandon Moore (hip), offensive lineman Nick Mangold (ankle), defensive back Eric Smith (knee), running back Bilal Powell (shoulder), defensive lineman Sione Pouha (low back) and safety LaRon Landry (heel) were limited participants.

Tight end Jeff Cumberland (wrist), quarterback Mark Sanchez (low back), offensive lineman Matt Slauson (knee), linebacker Calvin Pace (shin), defensive lineman Mike DeVito (finger), receiver Clyde Gates (shoulder) and defensive lineman Damon Harrison were full participants in practice for New York.

    Seattle has been relatively healthy so far, but this bye is coming at a great time. Seems like many of these injuries are things that can be played through, but getting time off now ought to help them not have to play through these “nagging” type injuries.

  2. YES – which is why I was excited when the bye week came later in the season for us this year. We have had many season where it has been pretty early.

    I hate missing games this time of year since I just love watching but going to Miami the next week – GO HAWKS!!!

    It would be nice to enter the bye week with a win against the Jets.

  4. Seahawks22360 says:

    This is a typical game where the hawks “should” win. I’m hopeful they will bring the heat on Sanchez and create some key turnovers. GO HAWKS!

  5. We should win AND it is at home so I feel confident! If we where on the road I would be scared. – on the flip side – this is the NFL and pretty much can happen and probably will!!

    Pete should know the weakness in Sanchez’s game (as if no one else does at this point) and is going to want to take it to him. Hopefully Thomas holds on to the 2-3 balls that will be thrown his way on Sunday by Sanchez…just imagine what our defense would be had Thomas held on to some of those INTs…those can be game changers with momentum and he’s not really come through for us hopefully Sunday he does.

  7. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Very glad that Edwards is back to practicing, and very glad that Baldwin is healing up. We will need them both down the stretch.

    Bring on a win and a bye!

    Relax y’all,

    The Russell Wilson show will be in full flow, in backing up the beast mode. This game will be a blowout.

    Slow news day, so here’s a diversion from this thread. The Huffington Post Sports section lists Brandon Browner as one of the NFL’s top ten underpaid players.

    Once again fans are expecting an easy win.Which is why I’m not gonna get all optimistic.We were also expecting east wins vs AZ, DET, and STL.It would be great to have a easy win/blowout,but I’m not banking on it.

    I’m with you EWalters — we’re a good team, getting better, but not a great one – but bottom line is that we’re not good enough to be looking past anyone. Jets have wins over the Colts and Dolphins, and lost to NE on an overtime FG just two games ago. They can play some, even if their season is coming in below expectations.

    Would love to get this one and go into the bye week at 6-4, sets us up nicely for a playoff run over the last 6 weeks.

  12. Dukeshire says:

    It;s very unlikely this will be a blowout. The Jets play very hard and very “ugly”. This will be an incredibly physical game and the ‘Hawks are a bit beat up at the moment. This won’t be a pretty win, should they get it.
