Seahawks Injury Update: Kam Chancellor, Max Unger, Percy Harvin

By on 10/12/2014 01:05:00 PM

The Seattle Seahawks could be without a few key players when they face a suddenly strong-looking Dallas Cowboys team on Sunday in CenturyLink Field. While the Seahawks were relatively healthy entering the game last Monday against the Washington Redskins, a couple of new names appear on their final Week 6 injury report:

Of primary concern is center Max Unger, who injured his foot against the Redskins and is listed as doubtful. Seattle's offensive line played very poorly last week and having Stephen Schilling potentially make his first career start at center won't help matters.

Safety Kam Chancellor picked up a strained hip during the week and is listed as questionable after missing practice Thursday and Friday. Chancellor underwent minor hip surgery during the offseason, so the injury to the All-Pro has to be worrisome for the Seahawks.

If Chancellor is unable to play, longtime backup Jeron Johnson will likely start at strong safety.

Wide receiver Percy Harvin missed Thursday's practice with a thigh injury, but was able to return Friday and is probable to play. Harvin has a major injury history, but all reports indicate he looked just fine in practice after returning.

Backup offensive lineman Alvin Bailey is doubtful with an oblique injury, but he was able to return to practice for the first time in over a week on Friday. Cornerback Tharold Simon remains sidelined with a knee injury.

It is still unknown when tight end Zach Miller will be able to return after undergoing ankle surgery two weeks ago, but he will not be able to play on Sunday.

Dallas' defensive line has not played particularly well so far, but the Seahawks struggled mightily last week in pass protection and will likely have to acclimate to a new center. Chancellor's potential absence could also be huge, as the Seahawks could use his run stopping ability against DeMarco Murray, the NFL's leading rusher.
