The Week 3 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys is going to be an absolute shootout between these two teams.
But what would the game of football look like if there wasn’t a bit of an injury bug on both sides?
Especially after last week’s long list of major injuries that accord throughout Sunday.
Heading into this week, the Seahawks have put three players on injured reserve: linebacker Bruce Irvin, safety Marquise Blair and receiver Phillip Dorsett II.
As for the other players on the 53-man roster, the list is pretty long.
Five players were held out of practice and eight were limited, though other than Rasheem Green and Cedric Ogbuehi, who did not play in Week 2, all of those players listed finished Sunday's game vs. New England.
Simply meaning that they just need some extra time to heal the bruises from the week before.

For the Dallas Cowboys, cornerback Trevon Diggs did not practice Wednesday because of a shoulder injury.

The injury bug was everywhere last week, and both teams are taking extra precautions to make sure nothing major happens before facing each other in Seattle at CenturyLink Field.
