Seahawks guard John Moffitt ruled out vs. Patriots
By Liz Mathews
Seahawks guard John Moffitt will miss his third straight game on Sunday.
Moffitt did not practiced Wednesday and has already been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Moffitt injured his knee in Week 3 against Green Bay and has yet to return to practice. The team has issued no comment on his prognosis or estimated recovery time.
Center Max Unger also sat out on Wednesday due to a hip issue. Coach Pete Carroll said he doesn’t anticipate the injury sidelining Unger on Sunday, but that his status will be day-to-day for now.
Defensive tackles Jaye Howard (foot) and Clinton McDonald (groin) were also sidelined on Wednesday.
Running back Marshawn Lynch, listed on the practice report with a back injury, was a limited participant.
Cornerback Walter Thurmond will likely return to practice next week, when he first becomes eligible to be removed from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. If Thurmond does begin practicing, the team has a three-week window to place him back on the active roster.
Thurmond has been rehabbing the broken leg that landed him on injured reserve in Week 7 of last season. He’s the only Seahawk on the regular-season PUP list.
