2 key Seahawks receivers expected to play vs. Giants despite injuries

The Seahawks should have all their tools at wide receiver for today’s showdown with the Giants.

Both DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are listed as questionable for today’s game on the official injury report. However, according to a pair of reports by Adam Schefter at ESPN both are expected to play.

Lockett suffered his rib injury a couple of weeks ago against the Cardinals. He has been limited at practice ever since but Lockett still caught seven of eight targets for 45 yards last week against the Chargers. As for Metcalf, his knee injury came early last Sunday and he was ruled out after just one catch and 12 yards.

For the season, these guys’ numbers are down a little bit. The biggest reason is the increase of tight ends in Seattle’s offense. Metcalf and Lockett have two touchdowns a piece, while Will Dissly, Noah Fant and Colby Parkinson have combined for five.

It’s working well for the Seahawks, who rank third in offensive DVOA and fifth in points per game.
