The Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys will meet in the NFC Wild Card Game in a rematch of their postseason meeting in January 2007.

You can view daily practice participation along with estimated and official game statuses for all of these players on our Wild Card Round Injury Report.

Seahawks Injuries

  • CB Shaquill Griffin (ankle)
  • LG J.R. Sweezy (foot)
  • DE Dion Jordan (knee)
  • SS Tedric Thompson (chest, ankle)

Notable players on IR: FS Earl Thomas (leg), TE Will Dissly (knee), CB Byron Maxwell (hip), RB C.J. Prosise (abdominal)

The Seahawks are mostly healthy after welcoming back first-round pick Rashaad Penny in Week 17. Their defense could certainly use the return of three starters, while the return of Sweezy could help solidify the interior offensive line against the Cowboys’ stout run defense.

Cowboys Injuries

  • LT Tyron Smith (neck)
  • RG Zack Martin (knee)
  • DT Tyrone Crawford (neck)
  • DT David Irving (ankle)

Notable players on IR: TE Geoff Swaim (wrist), WR Terrance Williams (foot), DT Datone Jones (hamstring), C Travis Frederick (illness)

Both Smith and Martin have been banged up all season, but they were held out of Week 17 largely as a precaution since the Cowboys basically had nothing to play for. Both Pro Bowl linemen are fully expected to suit up against the Seahawks.

The Cowboys’ defensive line could certainly use the presence of Crawford and/or Irving against the Seahawks’ physical, run-first offense. Irving’s situation in particular is unclear, as the talented defender hasn’t suited up since Week 7 and is dealing with a high-ankle sprain.
