Seahawks injury report: Richard Sherman questionable but expected to play

New, comments

The Seahawks will be down one starting defensive player, but not their talkative cornerback.

The Seattle Seahawks submitted their final injury report for Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks, and they have two big names on their list. Cornerback Richard Sherman is listed as questionable, while linebacker Terence Garvin is listed as doubtful.

Sherman sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday, but it sounds like he is all but certain to play. He has a consecutive games played streak of 91, and that seems unlikely to end. He played every snap last week, and according to Kenneth Arthur over at Field Gulls, this injury is the same one that had him on the injury report last week. We’ll see if he’s slowed down at all, but otherwise, he’ll be out there.

Garvin is all but assured of not playing this week. According to Seahawks beat writer Bob Condotta, Michael Wilhoite would start in place of Garvin. The last time 49ers fans saw him, he was offering adequate but not great play in place of NaVorro Bowman. Wilhoite is not a bad linebacker, but he is better suited as a special teams player. A spot start is not the end of the world, but if he is playing 16 games, an injury is usually the reason.
