Who were questionable heading into Monday Night Football in Week 12?

The Seahawks’ injury report for Week 12 is very much a case of all or nothing. This week, the players listed on their injury report are either out or carry no designation heading into Monday.

The two most surprising names to carry no injury designation were RB Alex Collins and OT Brandon Shell. Collins was limited all week with an abdomen injury, but it was not considered important enough to list him with the questionable tag. Shell was a bigger surprise, given he could not participate in practice on Friday before returning in a limited fashion Saturday.

Washington’s injury report for Week 12

Washington has three players listed as either questionable or doubtful for Week 12.

  • TE Ricky Seals-Jones (Hip) – Doubtful
  • WR Adam Humphries (Hip) – Questionable
  • WR Curtis Samuel (Groin) – Questionable

Ricky Seals-Jones was not able to practice all week. Additionally, Washington will activate fellow TE Logan Thomas from the injured reserve ahead of this game. However, reports suggest he will be on a “pitch count.”

Curtis Samuel was limited in practice all week, but he is also set to be active in Week 12. Ron Rivera stated that, much like with Thomas, Samuel would be on a pitch count. With Samuel set to be active, it will be interesting to see if they will also have Adam Humphries active for this matchup.

One key area where Washington has no injury concerns is at RB. Antonio Gibson was limited with a shin injury all week but carried no injury designation into Monday. Meanwhile, fellow RB J.D. McKissic was limited on Thursday and Friday. Yet, after being a full participant on Saturday, McKissic carries no injury designation into Monday.
