Duane Brown, Ziggy Ansah are Seahawks’ two big injury questions

The Seahawks have two significant injuries headed into the Divisional round. We break down the implications for Duane Brown and Ziggy Ansah.

The Seattle Seahawks will travel to play the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional round, and two notable names will be worth tracking on their injury reports. Head coach Pete Carroll was uncertain about the status of offensive tackle Duane Brown and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah following Sunday’s Wild Card win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Ansah aggravated a stinger injury in his neck, according to Carroll. Ansah missed Week 14 and Week 15 due to the injury, but played through it the final two weeks and into Sunday’s playoff game. He aggravated it in the second quarter and did not return to the game.

Brown suffered a knee injury in Week 16 and had surgery shortly after. The timeline was two to three weeks of rehab, per Ian Rapoport, and he has missed the low end of that. George Fant has started in his place at left tackle.

The Seahawks return to practice on Wednesday. In reality, Thursday and Friday give us a better handle since it sometimes take players a day to get firmly into the swing of things. Those will be the reports for potential Seahawks backers to track.
