Seattle Seahawks Rumors: Will Kam Chancellor Play Against Chicago Bears?
Seattle Seahawks rumors address whether Kam Chancellor will play against the Chicago Bears in Week 3. Seahawks rumors about Chancellor have shifted from talk about his contract holdout to whether he is immediately available to take the field. A report from the Seattle Times on Friday, September 25, provides some good news for fans. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll states that Chancellor is ready to play against the Bears, and that the defense should be at full strength again.
This is very bad news for Bears starting quarterback Jimmy Clausen, who had some interesting comments to make about playing at CenturyLink Field on Sunday, September 27. A report from ESPN has Clausen looking forward to the challenge, with several analysts saying he doesn’t fear going to play there. Maybe he hasn’t been paying attention to what typically takes place in Seattle.
“It’s a good challenge. It’s going to be a fun time on Sunday. I have to go out and execute the game plan and just have fun with the whole thing. It’s obviously one of the loudest, if not the loudest, stadiums in the NFL. So it’s going to be a challenge, but we’re up for the challenge and looking forward to getting out there.”
Seattle Seahawks rumors about how much Kam Chancellor will play in the game present a mixture of opinions. Some analysts feel that he might not see as many snaps as he would in a typical game, but that might simply be guessing since it’s possible that Chancellor is already at 100 percent. Despite missing training camp and finally reporting to the team during Week 3 of the NFL season, Chancellor didn’t stop doing his offseason workouts. He is up to speed on the defensive plays as well, meaning the only real question will be whether he is mentally prepared to step right on the field.
The Seahawks vs. Bears game will take place at 1:25 p.m. PT/ET on Sunday, with CBS providing the live coverage for fans. Both teams come into the game with 0-2 records and a huge need to put this one in the win column. The Seahawks are currently favored by 15-and-a-half points by the oddsmakers, making it one of the most one-sided match-ups during Week 3. Following the game, there are going to be more Seattle Seahawks rumors, not just about how Kam Chancellor plays, but how involved tight end Jimmy Graham is with the offense. The game will provide a lot of topics for fans to discuss on Monday, September 28.
