Seahawks face challenge in replacing injured Richard Sherman
SEATTLE (AP) — In the grand scheme of what the Seattle Seahawks are trying to accomplish this season, a failed physical could end up becoming a huge benefit.
Washington's offensive line will be as thin as feared Sunday when it plays the Seattle Seahawks in CenturyLink Field.
Left tackle Trent Williams, center Spencer Long and left guard Shawn Lauvao are out. Right guard Brandon Scherff is active, though how much he will play, and if he will start, remains in question. Morgan Moses, who sprained both ankles last week, is the "healthiest" Redskins offensive lineman.

Bennett brothers show support for each other through awkward week
