Seahawks’ Thomas Rawls game-time decision, Michael Wilhoite doubtful for Sunday vs Green Bay
Six Seahawks are listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report for Sunday’s season opener in Green Bay, including cornerback Richard Sherman, running back Thomas Rawls, defensive end Frank Clark and wide receiver Tyler Lockett.
One player, linebacker Michael Wilhoite, is listed doubtful due to a calf injury. No players are listed as out.
Talking to the media Friday afternoon, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that Rawls would be a game-time decision due to a lingering high ankle sprain, while Sherman (thigh), Lockett (knee) and Clark (wrist) are all expected to play against the Packers. Earlier in the day on KIRO Radio 97.3 FM, Carroll said Lockett was “in good shape to play” his first game since breaking his leg late last season.
In the event that Rawls doesn’t play Sunday, former Packer Eddie Lacy is expected to start at running back, though Lacy could start even if Rawls is active.
Sherman did not participate in practice Friday, along with Wilhoite, defensive end Michael Bennett, who received a rest day, and defensive tackle Jarran Reed (shoulder), who is also questionable for Sunday. Lockett, Rawls and Clark were all full participants Friday.
Rookie safety Delano Hill, who was a limited participant in Friday’s practice, is questionable with a shoulder injury.
