Seattle Seahawks Should Not Rush Injured Players Back
The Seattle Seahawks are getting healthier, and that is obviously a good thing for a team that is already 2-0. Granted, as one player heals another is added to the injury report. For example, Brandon Browner is on the mend, but Russell Okung could be lost for a number of weeks.
Obviously it is a good thing that players like Brandon Browner and Chris Clemons are getting back on the field. Players with a competitive fire do not want to be sitting on the sidelines while their teammates have all the fun.
You don’t want to tell these guys to stay out, but when it comes to the schedule and where the Seahawks are, there may be wisdom in taking some extra time. In other words, injured players do not need to rush back for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Obviously it is important to take every team in the NFL seriously. The Jaguars are not expected to give the ‘Hawks any trouble, but taking Jacksonville for granted can lead to mistakes, lazy play and the risk of lost momentum.
If guys like Browner and Clemons are totally healthy, then perhaps the Jacksonville game will be a good opportunity get back into the flow. However, if there are lingering issues, it might be smart to watch for one more week.
