The NFL will hold its weekly coaches meetings on Thursday and Friday for the first time since it announced last week that it was suspending the suspensions of quarterback Russell Wilson and linebacker Luke Kuechly for the second time in six months.
That leaves Wilson and Kuechnys out of the regular-season opener.
Wilson, a four-time Pro Bowler, was suspended for a total of 10 games.
He will miss the second half of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, and Kuesley will miss two more games with a broken foot.
Wilson is expected to be ready for the opener.
He has played well since returning to practice last week.
He is playing at a high level despite missing the last two games of the suspension, and it is difficult to predict how his recovery will go.
Kuechling has been sidelined for two weeks with a shoulder injury.
The former second-round pick played well in the preseason before sustaining a torn patella tendon and tearing his patellar tendon in the season opener.
Kaufusi will not return until after the season, so the team has a tough decision to make between keeping him around and letting him go.
The decision will come Thursday when the team meets with Wilson and his teammates for a pregame meeting.
Wilson has been the focal point of the offense since the start of the preseason.
The Seahawks have scored at least 25 points in each of the last three games and are on pace to score at least 30 points in four of their last five games.
That has allowed Wilson to lead the NFL in rushing yards and the Seahawks to rank third in rushing touchdowns.
Koochly, who has missed the last four games with an Achilles injury, is also expected to play after missing the preseason opener with a knee injury.
He had a career-high 19 catches for 222 yards in the Seahawks’ win over the 49ers last season.
Kuerchly is expected back Wednesday.
He missed the preseason finale with a hamstring injury and was a limited participant in training camp.
