Seattle appears to be in the middle of a roller-coaster season. After opening with three wins, the Seahawks dropped consecutive games to St. Louis and New England. Now they must overcome the loss of two difference-makers on defense to avoid an upset, as Arizona is playing well at home.

Here is a list of six injured players, their prognosis and who is expected to replace them. There also are projections for how the injuries will affect their respective teams this weekend and down the road.

Steve Muench played four years of Division I-AA football before joining Scouts Inc. in 2002. He has evaluated both NFL and college players for Scouts Inc., but his current focus is on the NFL draft.
