Seahawks injury report: Tony McDaniel DNP Wednesday
RENTON – The Seahawks appear to be in fairly good shape health-wise heading into their wild-card game against Detroit. Only four players are listed on their injury report Wednesday and none of them practiced. Most notably, starting defensive tackle Tony McDaniel sat out because of a concussion. He played Sunday in the team’s regular-season finale, so that’s a new injury.
Also sitting Wednesday were defensive lineman Michael Bennett and tight end Jimmy Graham, but their absences are listed as not injury-related and they typically get days off for rest. So their statuses for Saturday’s game against Detroit don’t seem to be in any jeopardy.
Running back C.J. Prosise was the other player on Seattle’s injury report. He’s been there since fracturing his scapula in November, and the team has kept him on its 53-man roster with the hope that he may be able to return at some point in the postseason. Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Prosise had a “very encouraging report” earlier in the day after having a CT scan “that was really positive.” Carroll said Prosise could resume practicing next week if Seattle advances to the divisional round.
“He’s working hard and running hard. We’re going to see what happens,” Carroll said. “If we have the good fortune of winning this week, we’ll take a look at next week. He’s going to run really hard this week with the thought that he’s going to practice next week. If we can give him that opportunity it would be great.”
Because their game is on a Saturday this week, the Seahawks weren’t required to provide an injury report Tuesday even though that’s when they began practicing.
