Seahawks injury update

As Pete Carroll pointed out Monday, the Seahawks have been fortunate to stay relatively healthy so far this season, and that should again be the case heading into Sunday’s game against New England. That being said, the Seahawks aren’t entirely healthy. Carroll said G John Moffitt, who has missed two games with a knee injury, will not practice Wednesday. Nor will DT Jaye Howard, who missed last week’s game with foot injury, DT Clinton McDonald (groin), and C Max Unger, who has what Carroll called a “hip thing.” Carroll said they don’t think Unger’s “hip thing” will affect his availability for Sunday, but they’ll have to wait and see.

There was good news on cornerback Walter Thurmond, who is coming back from the broken leg that ended his 2011 season and is currently on the physically unable to perform list. Players on the PUP list are eligible to return to the roster after Week six, and it sounds like Thurmond will be back pretty soon after that deadline.

“He’s ready to go when the PUP status is lifted,” Carroll said, though he did note that was how Thurmond felt and not necessarily a final medical diagnosis. Carroll did point out that Thurmond has been doing a lot of hard work on the side (players on the PUP list can’t practice with the team) so he should be in good condition when he does return to practice.

UPDATE

Now that practice is over, we have injury reports for both teams. No huge surprises, though it’s worth noting that Moffitt has again been ruled out for Sunday’s game already. Oh, and when you see pretty much the entire Patriots roster listed below, don’t get your hopes up. That’s just kinda how they roll in New England when it comes to Bill Belichick’s injury reporting.
