Seahawks TE Luke Willson will start while Zach Miller (ankle) is sidelined.

Willson, a 2013 fifth-rounder, is a toolsy pass-catching prospect who goes 6'5/251 with 4.51 speed. He can certainly stretch the seam Monday night against a Redskins defense getting shredded by tight ends, but volume in this spread-the-wealth passing attack will be a concern. Willson's snaps also project to be limited by his deficiencies as a blocker. We'd rather take a shot on Austin Seferian-Jenkins as a TE1 streamer.

The Seahawks are optimistic Zach Miller (ankle surgery) will only miss two games.

He had the ankle scoped during Seattle's Week 4 bye, so Miller's projected return date would be Week 7 after missing Weeks 5-6. Look for athletic specimen Luke Willson to take on a bigger role in Seattle's passing game. The Seahawks play the Redskins in Week 5. Washington's inept defense allowed Giants TEs Larry Donnell and Daniel Fells to combine for four TDs last Thursday night.

Seahawks TE Zach Miller underwent an ankle procedure last week.

Per FOX Sports, Miller is expected to be sidelined "an extended period of time." NFL.com's Ian Rapoport pegs Miller's absence at 5-6 weeks. Miller had six catches for 76 yards in the first three weeks. It's a big chance for Luke Willson, a plus athlete who had a 20-272-1 line as a rookie.

Coach Pete Carroll said SS Kam Chancellor is battling severe ankle pain, and considered surgery following the Week 2 loss to the Chargers.

According to Carroll, Chancellor's ankle "was on fire." It must not have been much of an issue Sunday against the Broncos. He played all 75 defensive snaps, and received an elite +4.7 grade from PFF, his second-highest single-game rating of his five-year career. Carroll said the Seahawks will "manage" Chancellor.

Zach Miller caught two passes for 12 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Broncos.

Miller's ankle was not an issue. The TE3 takes six catches for 76 yards and no touchdowns into the bye.
Sep 21 - 8:33 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught two passes for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Broncos.

Kearse lost playing time to Bryan Walters and ended up with just two targets. The Seahawks are rotating receivers even heavier than usual so far, leaving Kearse as a drop candidate heading into the Week 4 bye.
Sep 21 - 8:32 PM

Ricardo Lockette caught one pass for a 39-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Broncos.

In the upset of the day, Lockette burned Aqib Talib for the score. It was the 10th catch of his three-year career. Lockette remains a No. 4 or 5 WR for the Seahawks.
Sep 21 - 8:30 PM

Percy Harvin caught seven passes for 42 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Broncos.

The Seahawks force-fed Harvin on screens and quick-hitters, leading to a team-high nine targets. But he couldn't get loose and was held under 60 receiving yards for the third straight game. Non-PPR owners should get used to the frustration, as this run-heavy attack is not where receivers rack up big stats. Harvin will get a dream matchup against the Redskins following a Week 4 bye.
Sep 21 - 8:26 PM

Doug Baldwin caught four passes for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Broncos.

Baldwin continued to rotate heavily, but did lead the Seahawks in receiving yardage. He heads into the bye with 10 catches for 105 yards and no touchdowns. There's just no week-to-week ceiling for any of the Seahawks' receivers in this spread-the-wealth passing attack.
Sep 21 - 8:22 PM

Robert Turbin rushed two times for one yard and caught one pass for four yards in Sunday's Week 3 overtime win over the Broncos.

Christine Michael was a healthy scratch. Turbin heads into the bye as the primary backup, but we suspect Michael would get a large piece of the pie of Lynch were to go down. Turbin has just 10 carries and three catches through three games.
Sep 21 - 8:20 PM

Russell Wilson completed 24-of-34 passes for 258 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's Week 3 overtime win over the Broncos.

Wilson is elite because he both manages the game and makes big plays. It was evident in overtime, as he repeatedly used his legs to pick up crucial first downs on the game-winning drive. Wilson finished with nine rushes for 40 yards. He carries six touchdowns and one interception into the Week 4 bye and then will get a chance to shred a putrid Redskins secondary in Week 5.
Sep 21 - 8:14 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 26 times for 88 yards with a touchdown and caught three passes for 40 yards with another touchdown in the Seahawks' 26-20 overtime Week 3 win over the Broncos.

It was as memorable of a game as February's Super Bowl was forgettable. Peyton Manning forced overtime with an 80-yard touchdown plus 2-point drive and 59 seconds left in regulation. But he never got the ball in overtime, as Russell Wilson marched the Seahawks down the field and Lynch capped it with a 6-yard run. Lynch's first touchdown was a bit more out of the ordinary, as he lined up split wide and caught a slant from five yards out. Don't expect any more receiving days like this, but Lynch is a touchdown machine (four in three games so far this year, 44 in his last 50 regular season games). He'll face the Redskins following a Week 4 bye.
Sep 21 - 8:00 PM

Seahawks LT Russell Okung left Sunday's Week 3 game against the Broncos in the second quarter with a shoulder injury, but returned after halftime.

The oft-injured yet valuable Okung just got shook up. He was briefly replaced by Alvin Bailey at the end of the first half.
Sep 21 - 5:54 PM

Christine Michael is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Broncos.

This is essentially a healthy scratch, as Michael (hamstring) was listed as probable. He remains behind Robert Turbin. The rest of the Seahawks inactives: LB Bruce Irvin, CB Tharold Simon, T Andrew McDonald, T Garry Gilliam, WR Kevin Norwood and DE Greg Scruggs.
Sep 21 - 3:23 PM

Zach Miller (probable, ankle) returned to Seahawks practice Friday.

He's now on track to play against the Broncos. Miller has four catches for 64 yards through two games.
