Seahawks expect to be without both starting offensive tackles vs. the Lions

USA Today

The Seattle Seahawks suffered some major injury issues in their Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Those will carry over into their trip to Detroit in Week 2 to face the unbeaten Lions.

Seattle placed starting right tackle Abraham Lucas on I.R. on Wednesday, meaning he will miss several weeks. Lucas injured his knee in the loss to the Rams.


It’s a big loss. Lucas is stylistically similar to Detroit’s Penei Sewell in both physicality and attitude, and that’s not easy to replace or recreate. Seattle signed 41-year-old Jason Peters to help fill in.

The Seahawks are also expected to play without starting left tackle Charles Cross, who is dealing with a toe injury.
