Seahawks vs. Saints injury report: Bennett, Chancellor out

Here’s the official injury report for Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints:


Out: RB Thomas Rawls (fibula), TE Luke Willson (knee), DE Michael Bennett (knee), SS Kam Chancellor (groin), LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (ankle), CB DeAndre Elliott (hamstring).

Doubtful: none.

Questionable: T Bradley Sowell (knee), WR Tyler Lockett (thigh).

Notes: It’s a long list of key players on the injury report for the Seahawks this week. Bennett, who suffered a knee injury two weeks ago against Atlanta but played last week against Arizona, had swelling following the game against the Cardinals and will be checked out Monday for a cartilage issue, with Seattle coach Pete Carroll saying surgery is a possibility. Frank Clark and Cassius Marsh will see more time with Bennett out. With Chancellor missing his third straight game Seattle will be without two of its stars on defense. Pierre-Louis, who was the starter at strong-side linebacker following Mike Morgan’s injury, misses his second straight. Carroll said Sowell, the starter at left tackle, will work out Sunday with a chance to dress, which would be a remarkable one-week recovery from a sprained MCL. If Sowell can’t go then undrafted rookie George Fant is the likely starter. Quarterback Russell Wilson, who was limited in practice this week for the first time in his career because of a pectoral issue, is not listed on the injury report and is good to go.


Out: LB Stephone Anthony (hamstring), WR Jake Lampman (knee), CB Sterling Moore (abdomen), CB Delvin Breaux (fibula).

Doubtful: none.

Questionable: T Terron Armstead (knee), LB Dannell Ellerbe (quadriceps), G Senio Kelemete (neck), RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring), G Andrus Peat (groin).

Notes: The Saints have two starters on defense ruled out in Anthony and Breaux, who both missed last week’s 27-21 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Two other starters missed that game in Ellerbe and Peat, both of whom are considered questionable this week. With Armstead also listed as questionable, New Orleans has question marks at two spots on the offensive line.
