The injury report for the Seattle Seahawks’ pivotal Week 5 showdown with the Los Angeles Rams isn’t littered with names Kam Chancellor Jersey , but for an injury-riddled defense, it almost seems like a cruel joke that the team’s best pass-rusher is questionable not because of injury, but food poisoning. Seriously.Frank Clark is expected to play according to head coach Pete Carroll. He has missed the last two practices due to food poisoning, although he didn’t go into detail on what Clark ate that rendered him ill. Clark says he’s playing, though!The other name listed as “questionable” is left guard Ethan Pocic, who has been battling an ankle injury. Even if he is available on Sunday, J.R. Sweezy has taken his spot at left guard, so Pocic would just be a reserve.Two men who are confirmed out are linebacker K.J. Wright and defensive lineman Rasheem Green. Wright is still dealing with a knee problem, while Green has one of those “legit” ankle injuries that one can only assume means he’ll be out for a bit longer.With Wright out and Mychal Kendricks suspended, expect Austin Calitro to get the start alongside fellow linebackers Barkevious Mingo and Bobby Wagner.Everyone else who’s on the active roster should be good to go Authentic K.J. Wright Jersey , although we know a few will be healthy scratches come gameday.Pete Carroll provides injury updates ahead of Seahawks-Vikings Speaking to the media for the final time before the Seattle Seahawks face the Minnesota Vikings in the third week of the preseason, Pete Carroll provided updates on various players across the roster.Carroll confirmed what is generally assumed about the third preseason game: The starters will play into the third quarter in what is their biggest run out of August. A handful of other notes from Carroll’s presser on Thursday are of interest:After stating last week, ahead of Seahawks-Chargers, that they “Were going to give it another week” with Amara Darboh’s return from injury, Carroll essentially said the same on Thursday. Darboh is expected back for next week’s game against the Oakland Raiders, in what would be his first action of the preseason. Carroll confirmed Adam Schefter’s reported timeline for J.D. McKissic, who is set to miss 4-6 weeks with a Jones’ fracture in his foot. With McKissic out, David Moore is expected to get some action as a returner against Minnesota.Bradley McDougald will miss Friday’s game with a pectoral injury he picked up this week. Both Maurice Alexander and Delano Hill should benefit from McDougald’s absence. Elsewhere in the secondary, Byron Maxwell remains sidelined, giving Dontae Johnson a second opportunity to get reps with the first team as he makes a late roster push. J.R. Sweezy will also be out for Seattle’s matchup against the Vikings Youth Bobby Wagner Jersey , however when he returns, it will be in a new spot. Sweezy moved to left guard this week in his return to practice, competing with Ethan Pocic for the starting spot. D.J. Fluker, well established as the starter on the right, will play on Friday after suffering a finger injury in Los Angeles. Finally, George Fant will play at right tackle against Minnesota. Offensive line coach Mike Solari said earlier in August the plan was to move him over eventually, and this week Fant began getting reps on the right. The next time Carroll is set to speak to the media is Friday night, following the team’s game against the Vikings.
