The Seattle Seahawks, a team in dire danger of missing the 2022/23 NFL playoffs, will be in Kansas City on December 24th, 2022. They are +10.0 (Unibet) on the spread for the game as they prepare to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 16 (Saturday). This is a game that Seattle, a team that’s 7-7, really needs in order to improve their playoff chances. Meanwhile, the KC Chiefs, who are 11-3, will be looking at competing for their conference’s top seed and a first-round bye in the playoffs.

The injury report for the game has recently been updated. Bettors should be aware of the following before they make wagers on this upcoming game.

How to understand injury reports in the NFL

Firstly, injury reports for individual NFL games require analysis. Just because a player is listed on one does not mean the player has a serious problem. Players can be listed when in full health because they are being rested or for personal reasons.

The legend for the abbreviations used is as follows.

  • DNP: did not participate in practice
  • LP: limited participant in practice
  • FP: full participant in practice

Kenneth Walker III: DNP on Wednesday after practice

Kenneth Walker III, the runningback for Seattle, was listed on the injury report as of Wednesday after practice. Walker III, who replaced Penny Rashaad earlier this season as the team’s top RB, has a problem with his ankle, according to the report. The following teammates of his were DNP due to injuries (ie. not rest) on the report for Seattle: Tyler Lockett, Noah Fant, Ryan Neal, Al Woods, and Bruce Irvin. In total, Seattle had 15 players listed on their half of the injury report.

Lockett, a wide receiver, has made headlines recently. He has a broken hand but he is expected to recover from surgery quickly.

Kansas City lists 11 players on their half of the report

Meanwhile, Kansas City had 11 players listed on their half of the report. That may seem like a lot. However, seven of the players on KC that were on the report were full participants in Tuesday’s practice. The Chiefs look like they are in very good shape for the game and the -10.0 spread that sees them as large favorites appears to be warranted.
