Seattle Seahawks Player News: All Positions

News: Wright made eight tackles (four solo) and two pass breakups in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens.
Impact: In the shadow of Bobby Wagner, Wright doesn't get as much credit. But he's been a dependable IDP option this year with 58 tackles -- 10th most in the league -- and five pass breakups. He'll look to keep it up in Week 8's matchup against the Falcons.
News: Wagner registered 13 tackles (seven solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens.
Impact: This is the third time in five games Wagner posted double-digit stops, and it was his first forced fumble of the year. He now has 69 tackles and is tied for second with Jordan Hicks for the most tackles behind only Blake Martinez (76). Wagner continues to be a premier IDP option.
News: McDougald (back) could return to action Week 8 against the Falcons, Liz Mathews of USA Today reports.
Impact: McDougald wasn't able to practice in any capacity last week due to back spasms, and he sat out Sunday's loss to the Ravens. His presence in the starting lineup Week 8 would be a notable boost for Seattle's secondary.
News: Myers made three of four field-goal attempts and converted a lone extra point in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens.
Impact: Myers remains perfect below 40 yards, as he converted on field goals from 31, 34 and 35 yards. However, Myers continues to struggle above the 40-yard mark, as he has made just one of four tries after he missed a 53-yard attempt wide right. He should have an intriguing amount of opportunities in Week 8 against the Falcons, who have allowed at least 34 points in three straight contests.
News: Moore caught one of three targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens.
Impact: Moore logged a season-high 30 of a possible 70 offensive snaps (42 percent), but it didn't blossom into any notable production. The increase in snaps may be due to Will Dissly (Achilles) sitting out, as the tight end lined up as a wideout on 26.1 percent of his snaps. Still, Moore is toiling as the No. 4 wide receiver behind Jaron Brown, and he figures to stay in that role Week 8 against the Falcons.
News: Brown caught three of six targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens.
Impact: He finished one yard short of Tyler Lockett for the team lead in receiving yards, but it was still Brown's best mark of the year. The 29-year-old wideout slotted in as the Seahawks' No. 3 wide receiver once again, seeing 43 of a possible 70 offensive snaps (60 percent), although David Moore was close behind with a season-high 30 snaps. With Will Dissly (Achilles) out, Brown garnered a red-zone target as well but couldn't haul it in. The Seahawks will look to bounce back in Week 8 against a struggling Falcons secondary.
News: Penny didn't record a touch in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens.
Impact: Penny returned to the lineup after missing Week 6's game with a hamstring injury, but it appears the Seahawks only planned to use Penny in case of emergency. That never surfaced, as Chris Carson piled up 21 carries and three catches while C.J. Prosise garnered one rush for 17 yards. Carson wasn't efficient with just 3.1 YPC, but the Seahawks' offensive line provided no help. Still, if Carson isn't ripping off big gains, Penny should have a role, albeit a limited one, in the backfield rotation when he's fully healthy. He'll look to get into the fold Week 8 against the Falcons.
News: Metcalf caught four of nine targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens. He also lost a fumble.
Impact: Metcalf's afternoon was highlighted by an impressive 37-yard reception in the first half, but most will only remember his hiccup. With the Seahawks down two possessions, Metcalf caught a ball at the line of scrimmage but fumbled it without any contact. Marlon Humphrey returned the loose ball 18 yards for a touchdown to put the Ravens up 30-13 with 3:37 remaining in the fourth quarter. It was still a promising day for the rookie, though, as Metcalf led the team in targets, including two in the red zone. He'll look to bounce back during a favorable matchup against the Falcons in Week 8.
News: Lockett caught five of seven targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens.
Impact: On a broken play in the second quarter, Lockett appeared to wear out Marlon Humphrey before making a diving grab for the Seahawks' first and only touchdown of the game. With Russell Wilson's previous red-zone favorite Will Dissly (Achilles) out for the season, it's a good sign that Lockett is stepping up deep in enemy territory. Lockett will look to carry the momentum into Week 8's game against the Falcons, although Lockett hasn't scored in three road games this year despite finding paydirt in all four home contests.
News: Carson rushed 21 times for 65 yards and caught three of five targets for nine yards in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens.
Impact: After ripping off three straight 100-yard rushing performances, Carson was uninspiring against a well-oiled Ravens defense. The third-year back didn't exceed nine yards on any of his carries, although he managed five first downs. Still, coach Pete Carroll stuck with Carson as the bell cow despite Rashaad Penny (hamstring) being active, as Penny wasn't afforded a touch all game. Perhaps Penny wasn't fully healthy yet, but Carson appears to remain the clear-cut No. 1 back and a must-start fantasy player going into Week 8's game against the Falcons.
News: Wilson completed 20 of 41 passes for 241 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens. He also rushed three times for 27 yards.
Impact: This was an uncharacteristically inefficient outing for Wilson. Over the first six games, Wilson didn't finish below a 64 percent completion rate or 8.1 YPA, but he rang up at 49 percent and 5.9 YPA in this outing. Wilson also threw his first interception of the season in the second quarter, and Marcus Peters ran it back 67 yards for a touchdown. The Seahawks fell to 5-2 on the season, but Wilson is still firmly entrenched in the MVP conversation. He'll has an appealing bounce-back opportunity in Week 8 against the pitiful Falcons secondary.
News: Fluker (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Impact: Fluker was listed as questionable after working as a limited participant Thursday and Friday, but he's good to play this week. The 28-year-old should return to his starting role at right guard after sitting out Week 6.
News: Brown (biceps) won't play in Sunday's game against the Ravens, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Impact: Brown was upgraded to questionable for the game Saturday but, as evidenced by this news, hasn't made enough progress to play. He'll miss his second-straight contest, with Jamarco Jones drawing the start again at left tackle.
News: Blair is expected to make his first career start Sunday against the Ravens.
Impact: The rookie second-round pick has only three tackles on 12 defensive snaps this season, but he'll enter the Seahawks' starting eleven in place of Bradley McDougald in Week 7.
News: Jefferson (oblique) is active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Impact: Jefferson popped up on the injury report late in the week with the injury, but as evidenced by this news, won't be forced to miss game action. Now that he's officially active, look for the Maryland product to settle into his rotational role on the defensive line for Week 7.
News: Ansah (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against Baltimore, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Impact: Ansah came into Sunday as a game-time decision after leaving last week's game against the Browns. Now that he's officially out for Week 7, look for Rasheem Green to see an increased workload.
News: McDougald (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Impact: McDougald was reportedly trending in the wrong direction to play Sunday and he indeed won't suit up. Marquise Blair is expected to start at strong safety in his place alongside Tedric Thompson.
News: Penny (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday versus the Ravens, John Boyle of the Lions' official site reports.
Impact: After a week of full practices, Penny has been given the all-clear to play for just the second time since the second game of the season. His workload will be interesting to note, though, as Chris Carson has been a true workhorse over the last three games. In Penny's three appearances, he's averaged 8.3 touches per contest.
News: McDougald (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against Baltimore, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Impact: McDougald wasn't expected to play prior to the game anyway, so this news isn't surprising. He's been dealing with back spasms throughout the week, and Marquise Blair is expected to make the start at safety along side Tedric Thompson.
News: McDougald (back) is not expected to suit up in Sunday's game against the Ravens, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Impact: McDougald is still dealing with back spasms that have kept him out of practice for the majority of the week. If he's officially ruled inactive for the game, rookie Marquise Blair is expected to start at one of the safety positions alongside Tedric Thompson. Look for the official word on McDougald's status about an hour and a half prior to kickoff.
