Injury questions around Seattle D | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Seahawks DE Jadeveon Clowney (core) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. S Quandre Diggs (ankle) is doubtful as well. CB Shaq Griffin (hamstring) and LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) are questionable. Griffin missed last week's game and then managed only a limited Wednesday practice before sitting out the other 2 days. Kendricks missed the past 2 games but managed 1 more limited practice this week (Friday) than he did last week. Neither guy should be in your IDP plans, if you can help it.

Recent Shark Bites

The Seahawks have fired OC Brian Schottenheimer. ESPN's Adam Schefter cites "philosophical differences" between Schottenheimer and HC Pete Carroll. We assume that's referring to the offense's run/pass split, which has long been a topic of debate in Seattle. The 2020 Seahawks offense was a juggernaut over the 1st half of the season, averaging 34.3 points and 414 total yards per game on a 59.3% pass rate. They sunk to 24.3 points and 335 yards in the 2nd half on a 56.6% pass rate. We'll see who the 'Hawks go with as their new OC. Russell Wilson, D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett's fantasy stocks are on the line.

Seahawks CB Shaq Griffin (hamstring) and DT Jarran Reed (oblique) are active for today's game against the Rams.

Seahawks CB Shaq Griffin (hamstring) and DT Jarran Reed (oblique) are questionable for Saturday's game against the Rams. Griffin came down with his injury this week and missed the final practice. Reed put in limited workouts the final 2 days. We'd bet on him playing. We'll check the status of both Saturday afternoon, when the inactives come out.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) and CB Quinton Dunbar (knee) will practice this week "with a plan on playing Sunday," according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. The decision on whether either defensive starter will return to action against Washington on Sunday figures to come at the end of the week. So don't rely too heavily on either in your Week 15 IDP plans.

Seahawks CB Tre Flowers (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants. His absence would likely push CB D.J. Reed back into the starting lineup. Reed tallied 25 solo tackles over his 3 fill-in starts earlier this season. DE Carlos Dunlap (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game. We'll check his status Sunday.
