Even if the 49ers retrieved some key players from the injured reserve team in time and let them face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, San Francisco will miss many important opponents. However, it looks like the Seahawks will be in a similar situation.
Full-time safety Jamal Adams is the Seahawks offseason big-handed acquirer who missed the last four weeks due to a groin injury. So far, all signs indicate that his absence will be extended by another week. Seattle coach Pete Carroll expects Adams to practice with limited abilities starting Wednesday, but he has not practiced this week.
If Adams can’t practice on Friday, it is difficult to see him play on Sunday. As ESPN̵
Adams is the biggest person who seriously harmed the Seahawks due to injury and missed the game with the 49ers, but he is certainly not the only one. Not by a long shot.
The Seahawks’ top three guards, Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer, have not practiced this week because they are dealing with various Leg injury. It can be said that starting a left tackle Duane Brown (knee), starting left back Mike Yupati (guard), starting defensive end Benson Mayova (ankle), starting corner guard Shaquille Griffin ( Concussion, hamstrings) and nickel defender Ugochukov Amadi (ham hamstrings). ).
Like Adams, all of these injured Seahawks have a chance to get practice before the key division game against San Francisco. Anyone who does not practice on Friday should be considered doubtful at best.
It’s hard to say which injured player-certainly not Adams-if the Seahawks can’t play, they will miss the most opportunities. Rookie fourth-round pick DeeJay Dallas is currently the only healthy player on the Seattle roster, which may put more pressure on quarterback Russell Wilson. Although Wilson does have the ability to do this, if his starting offensive line does not play a role on the left side, the task may become more challenging.
Again, given that the Seahawks are ranked first in the league so far this season, defensive injuries may prove to be even more harmful.
The Seahawks have made the most yards in NFL history through six games and are breaking the record of 7,042 yards allowed by the New Orleans Saints in 2012. Their passing performance is especially bad because they allow the NFL’s worst 368.7 yards per game. If Adams, Griffin and/or Amadi are unable to compete (seems more and more likely), it will put a troubled unit facing Kyle Shanahan (Kyle Shanahan) will be even more exhausted on offense.

For Seattle, this is not a good combination.
The Seahawks are very talented and will be a huge challenge for the 49ers, but the many injuries in Seattle will undoubtedly make the situation in San Francisco easier. Of course, the 49ers will have no sympathy for them after they have suffered severely unlucky.
