Seahawks re-signed DT Jimmy Staten to their practice squad and released T Andrew McDonald.

The Seahawks are just adding some depth to their defense which has been banged up in recent weeks but there is no indication that Staten will be put on the active roster any time soon.

Max Unger (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game.

No surprise here, as after the initial injury was sustained, team officials ruled Unger out for at least three weeks. This is only week two in Unger's recovery, so don't expect him to be even ruled as questionable until at least Week 15.

Coach Pete Carroll said Cooper Helfet won't play Thursday.

It looks like Russell Wilson has finally found a TE that he favors most in Tony Moeaki, as he completed four passes to him in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. the loss of Helfet will not affect the Seahawks offense much being that he was most likely to be phased out of the offensive plans due to Moeaki's success anyway.

Marshawn Lynch (back) was limited in Tuesday's practice.

With the short week, the Seahawks aren't going to push Lynch who has been dealing with some back soreness over the last couple of weeks. He'll practice Wednesday and he'll be ready for Thursday's game against the 49ers. He remains a must-start in all formats.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he expects RB Marshawn Lynch (back) to be fine to play Thursday.

As expected, Lynch wasn't able to muster up much of anything against the Cardinals on Sunday. With the Injury to starting center Max Unger, coupled with the reputation of the Cardinals stout run defense, it came as no surprise that Lynch struggled. Coming off a short week of rest, it should be expected that Beast Mode will be a little banged up going into the Seahawks Thanksgiving matchup with their division rival in the 49ers, however coach Carroll expects that he will play.

Steven Hauschka was 4-of-5 on field goal attempts and converted an extra point during the Seahawks' 19-3 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Huascka was the game's leading scorer, banging in four field goals and an extra point. He drilled a nice 52-Yard attempt, which gave him a boost in some fantasy leagues. He's been one of the more consistent kickers and should be in lineups every week.

Byron Maxwell recorded a tackle, two deflected passes and an interception during the Seahawks' 19-3 win over the Cardinals on Sunday. 

The Seahawks' defense played their best game of the season. The Cardinals were unable to move the ball in any capacity, especially down the field. Along with Maxwell's standout performance, Richard Sherman bestowed a goose-egg upon up-and-down wide receiver Michael Floyd. They have a decent matchup against the scoring-lite 49ers offense next weekend.

Cooper Helfet caught two passes on two targets for 27 yards and a touchdown during the Seahawks' 19-3 win over the Cardinals on Sunday. 

The Seahawks tight-end situation has been a mess since starter Zach Miller went down earlier in the season. Helfet has now grabbed a few TD catches, but he can't be relied upon in any capacity for fantasy. Seahawks pass-catchers are fantasy-cancer.

Doug Baldwin caught two passes on two targets for six yards during the Seahawks' 19-3 win over the Cardinals on Sunday. 

Dougie Fresh was MIA on Sunday, obscured from sight by the blitzes and double-coverages thrown by the Cardinals on Sunday. Baldwin is the only receiver to go for more than 100 yards in a game, and he's only done it once. The Seahawks have considered using Richard Sherman out wide. Seattle receivers should be avoided at all costs in the fantasy realm.

Ricardo Lockette one catch on one target for 49 yards during the Seahawks' 19-3 win over the Cardinals on Sunday. 

Lockette's one catch was the only big downfield play by either team in the game. It was an incredible throw from Russ Wilson, but unfortunately for Lockette's fantasy owners -- a select crowd to be sure -- the catch didn't go for a touchdown. He's best left marinating on the waiver wire, as Seattle receivers have only five touchdowns total on the season. That's third fewest in the NFL.
