WR: DK Metcalf

DK Metcalf (foot) was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

Egads. Perhaps the Seahawks are just managing Metcalf's reps — they have been for weeks — but the mid-week downgrade is never what you want to see. Even if the Seahawks have yet to express concern over Metcalf's Week 6 status, he must now be considered genuinely questionable for Sunday evening's game against the Steelers. Hopefully we gain some clarity, or at least a "limited" practice, on Friday. Metcalf's absence would leave fill-in QB Geno Smith with Freddie Swain as the No. 2 behind Tyler Lockett. Hardly ideal.
