Cassius Marsh injures knee, set for MRI

Fingers crossed this isn’t serious, but it’s certainly concerning. Reports at practise say the injury occurred following a clash of knees. Marsh left the field and returned in street clothes. Hopefully the MRI is just a precautionary measure.

Seattle lost depth on the defensive line when Clinton McDonald, Chris Clemons and Red Bryant departed. They’ve since lost Jesse Williams to injury, while it was a pretty mediocre start at Denver for the likes of Benson Mayowa.

The Seahawks will create pressure with Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril. Kevin Williams will provide some interior rush, but they needed someone like Marsh to step in and add to the rotation.

Last year was really the first time the pass rush excelled in the Carroll era and they won’t want to take a step back. The NFC West is loaded on defense. It’ll be fine margins in a blossoming division.

They can live with him missing a few weeks and O’Brien Schofield has flashed in camp and at times against the Broncos. But it’s absolutely crucial this isn’t a serious problem. Marsh has shown a ton of upside so far and had a nice sack last Thursday. They need him out there.

Marsh stood out during our tape review of Seattle’s 2014 rookie class.

    Damn it, he looked so good in that first game. Please don’t be a tear.

    Please – just a bruise!! Please just out a few weeks!

      I mean just a bruise would be great, but I am hoping that they are just being overly cautious and he can come back in quickly.

    …walking off the field under your own power, and then returning in street clothes, is not the usual situation if it is an acl….so at least there’s hope.

    I’m choosing the glass-half-full with a silver silver lining viewpoint.

    From the blog reports it sounds like he’d been getting a crazy amount of reps in camp since he missed the first rookie camp. Both with Defense and Special Teams.

    Maybe this (hopefully) short break keeps him from hitting the wall mid-December when the Hawks need him.

  5. James

    Cassius has lit a fire under everyone, coaches and fans alike, with his ferocious play, but more important, pass rush skills, especially his hand-combat club moves. He has shown more moves, frankly, in just a few practices, than Bruce Irvin has shown in two years, and that is speaking as a big Bruce Irvin fan. …..Please be only a sprain, or a minor arthro procedure that heals in a couple of weeks!

    At times like this one can turn to either prayers or drink. Fortunately, for me I like Scotch. As the circumstances are dire – I’ll make it a double. Single malt of course.
