D.J. Fluker expresses his desire to rejoin the Seahawks to help tackle their ongoing offensive line crisis.
The Seahawks faced a tough 17-13 defeat against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6, largely due to their struggling offensive line.
Injuries have hit the Seahawks hard, with key players like left tackle Charles Cross and guards Phil Haynes and Damien Lewis sidelined.
Center Evan Brown is the only offensive lineman to have played every game this season.
D.J. Fluker's Bid to Rescue the Seahawks
1. The most significant issue is the absence of right tackle Abraham Lucas, who's been on the injured reserve since Week 1.
1. Coach Pete Carroll expresses uncertainty about Lucas's return. 2. Lucas's replacement, Jake Curhan, is also grappling with an ankle injury.
The Seahawks' offensive line, which allowed minimal sacks and quarterback hits in the first four games, struggled against the Bengals.
1. The Bengals sacked Geno Smith four times and hit him nine times in Week 6. 2. Curhan and Haynes played subpar, with PFF ratings of 53.8 and 34.6, respectively.
