Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor was a surprise addition to the team’s injury report today.

Chancellor did not practice because of a groin issue. Along with the Seattle safety, defensive end Red Bryant (foot) and cornerback Marcus Trufant (hamstring) did not practice for a second straight day.

Linebacker Leroy Hill (ankle) and center Max Unger (hip) were limited participants. And running back Marshawn Lynch (back) and receiver Sidney Rice (head) were full participants.

For Arizona, receiver Andre Roberts (ankle) and defensive end Ronald Talley (ankle) did not practice for a second straight day.

Defensive end Calais Campbell (calf), quarterback Kevin Kolb (ribs), running back Beanie Wells (knee) and cornerback Greg Toler (hamstring) were limited participants.

Defensive back Justin Bethel (shoulder), receiver Early Doucet (ribs), long snapper Mike Leach (back), linebacker Paris Lenon (shoulder), safety Kerry Rhodes (quad) and linebacker Reggie Welker (knee) were full participants.

  1. Our starting safety tandem has been pretty quiet the last few games, especially Chancellor. Maybe this groin pull is the reason why Kam has not been his normal dynamic self?

  2. Dukeshire says:

    That could be. But consider too, that OCs are now going out of their way to scheme around them and / or gameplay in such a way they aren’t a factor. As an example: exploit the seam and Wagner, in cover 2, or target the slot when Seattle’s in nickel. Whatever the reason, I have no doubt they will make the necessary adjustments, health permitting.

    Moreover, I can’t help but think how different the season would be now had Thomas held on to even half of the passes he’s gotten his hands on, this year. He in particular is playing really well (dropped ints aside).

  3. sluggo42 says:

    Duke, Thomas hasn’t dropped many “sure” nits, just a few maybe,

  4. AKhawkFan says:

    A few dropped ints can be a pretty big deal when all the games we have lost have been by 7 points or less.

  5. Sluggo42, I’m with Duke. He’s missed plenty of sure picks and a fair share of more difficult ones. But I’d say off the top of my head that it is well over 5 in the sure category. That is alot .

  6. bbnate420 says:

    I agree with Duke. Thomas has missed at LEAST 2-3 INTs that he should’ve, I bet he would say the same, had. He’s still the best player on our defense IMO. I don’t think it’s a trend or an indication of bad hands. Just sometimes you have a rough stretch. They are human. Chancellor has seemed a step slow for a good portion of the season to me. I believe there have been some other nagging injuries that were reported earlier? I still think he is a top flight SS. He has his weaknesses, like any player, but I can’t think of another SS I would trade him for off hand. He’s still been a beast near the LOS and in delivering some fierce hits. Maybe that’s part of it. He has a little Ken Hamlin Syndrome and is forgetting to be technically sound sometimes?

    Off topic:

    I remember talking with a few blues fans on here a little while ago. I remember that Duke was one of them for sure. Here’s a link to Joe Bonamassa, a great, contemporary blues guitarist performing with the vocalist Beth Hart. She has a great voice IMO. Just wanted to share it with anyone that is interested. Apologies to anyone that think it’s out of line.

    ? It wasn’t vertical enough for me!

  10. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Good article on Wagner today Eric.
    This draft is really turning out to be great for the Seahawks imo.

    And who do you think is Wagners strongest competition for Defensive rookie of the year? Anyone?

  11. Ewalters7354 says:

    Georgia, Luke Kuechly is quietly having a good season. 100+ tackles, a few picks and sacks.

  12. Dukeshire says:

    bbnate – Thanks for that. Palladia aired a concert of his from London, a few months back. He’s pretty impressive to be sure. Another guy I like quite a bit is Gary Clark Jr, from Austin. He’s a different player than Bonamassa to be sure, but he’s really good, non the less. He’s been around for years but is only now starting to get recognition outside of Texas.

  13. montanamike2 says:

    Chancellor is one of my favorite players, what he did to Jason Witten was sure beauty and one of the main reasons he kept dropping balls in the second half of the Cowboys game. I wonder if these new rules are messing him up or if it’s just injuries?
    I liked his backup in pre season and want to see him play but i’m not sure his first game starting should be against a division foe, especially Fitz. I’m glad to have Rice for the game and we are at home.
    Wilson might not label this as a revenge game but it is, interesting how he’ll face this team again after his rookie start.

  14. confucious says:

    Georgia, with all due respect, defensive rookie of the year? It’s a little early to be drinkin even on east coast time. Wagner has had his moments. He has also been challenged, especially as of late, with learning the position. I would argue that his position is the softest area of the defense. Teams are running up the middle and passing short middle with success. While Wagner is not the only factor in this equation, his inexperience bears some responsibility. I don’t think he is a bad player, mind you, I just don’t see him getting any rookie awards.

  15. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Ewalters7354- That’s right, I forgot all about Kuechly. I wanted the Seahawks to draft him in the first round if they didn’t pick DeCastro, however I’m very happy the way it turned out with Wagner. I think Wagner started a little late playing football so perhaps he has more upside.

  16. GeorgiaHawk says:

    confucious- You may be suprised. He probably won’t win it, ( see Kuechly) however I wouldn’t bet against him being in the mix.

    BTW- would anyone here right now trade Wilson and Wagner for Newton and Kuechly?

  17. montanamike2 says:

    GeorgiaHawk- last year hell yeah!
    This year no way!

  18. WTraveler says:

    Frankley I have not been impressed by Thomas tackling the past couple games. He’s either a half step late or isn’t wrapping.

  19. montanamike2 says:

    Since he took that huge game changing penalty(bogus) he hasn’t been quite the same, same with Chancellor.

  20. sluggo42 says:

    I wonder if ther is a stat somewhere on dropped INTs?

    I have watched every game, and I only remember maybe two “easy” missed int opportunities. The rest were laid out or, would have been a ” great” int. isn’t the reason defensive back are because they weren’t good enough hands to be receivers anyways?

    I wonder how the rest of the league rates on missed int. opportunities. I would guess Ed Reed leads…

  21. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Baldwin says-

    “He’s the same person from first quarter to overtime. I think that’s crucial when you’re looking at someone who has to stay calm, especially at the quarterback position. There is no roller coaster of emotion, or play. He just goes out and continues to grind. His calm demeanor calms everyone else down.”

    That’s the biggest criticism that I had with Hasselbeck, ( even though I am a huge fan of his) is that he wouldn’t control his emotions well at times, and I think that hurt the team.

  22. hawks4life, it’s nice to see Russell Wilson at the top of a list, but when Cade McNown is at No. 2 and Ryan Leaf is at No. 5, it diminishes my excitement quite a bit.

    Wilson has received a lot of praise in the media. It was really a breakout game for him — in terms of the national media realizing that he’s a star in the making. The defensive blunder that allowed the game to go into OT gave Wilson another chance to shine and made his performance even more impressive. If he keeps playing like that, the Super Bowl won’t be far away.

  23. Dukeshire says:

    sluggo42 – “easy” is subjective of course, but I can think of 5 balls that Thomas has gotten both hands on, that he’s failed to hold on to. (This doesn’t include last week when he had both hands’ fingertips on Cutler’s pass down the sideline intended for, I believe, Bennett.)

    And no, defensive backs aren’t there because they are failed receivers. That logic really devalues the position and marginalizes how difficult it is to play. Different skill set. (Although maybe you were just being sarcastic…)

    Understand too that I’m not criticizing Thomas. Simply an observation and thought.

  24. bbnate420 says:

    Kuechly is having a good year for sure, but his numbers aren’t that different from Wagner’s. They’re almost identical. I hope Wagner will take it if he continues to produce and the Hawks make the playoffs.

    Sluggo, I don’t think there is a dropped INT stat, even though you were probably joking. That is as subjective, at least, as tackles.

    Georgia, let me see……fuck no! To the trade in case anyone misunderstands!

    Duke, I’m sure you’re aware but there is a lot of footage of both on YouTube and other sites I would bet. I definitely know about Gary Clark Jr. He is awesome. It’s weird because I was thinking of linking a song of his before you made your post. I kind of figured you knew about him. SRV is prob my favorite, so any awesome guitarists from Austin I hopefully know about.

  25. bbnate420 says:

    I appreciate the link though, Duke. Spreading the word about these players is always worth it IMO.

  26. sluggo42 says:

    I am making funnies, can’t slip anything past you guys. I just don’t think that INTs are easy, when you are thinking about laying the wood on somebody, and suddenly the ball is within reach. That’s hard to re-process in a mili-second. But there have been a few for sure.
    I am much mor concerned about the totally blown assignments that have allowed people to be WIDE open for TDs or huge gains. I would argue those plays have hurt us more than the few possible drops from et

  27. mojjonation says:

    Cade McNown and Ryan F@#$%^G Leaf? You have got to be kidding me.

    Is there any funnier injury (just from name standpoint) than a pulled groin?

  28. Way different skill set. But picks will help you keep your job for sure. Don’t ever think they don’t practice catching the ball. A lot.
