The Seattle Seahawks’ secondary has taken another major blow: starting safety Kam Chancellor is likely out for the season due to a neck injury, according to NFL insider Mike Garafolo.
This news comes one week after the Seahawks lost star cornerback Richard Sherman for the season due to an Achilles injury. Those are some really tough losses for Seattle.
At 6-3, the Seahawks are very much still in the mix for the playoffs. But due to these injuries, their status as a top contender in the NFC has taken a hit.
The Philadelphia Eagles are set to play the Seahawks on Sunday Night Football in just a few weeks on Sunday, December 3. Seattle is a very, very tough place to play, but it’s hard not to think that that game continues to look more winnable.
Last year, the Eagles lost to the Seahawks in Seattle by a final score of 26 to 15. The game wasn’t even close as the score makes it out to be. Carson Wentz was intercepted by both Sherman and Chancellor. Now neither defender will be playing in this season’s contest.
One would expect the Eagles to be much more competitive this time around.
