RENTON - There was a new addition to the final injury report of the week for the Seattle Seahawks.

S Chris Maragos appeared on the injury report with a back injury. Seattle didn't hold a practice on Friday, so the practice report is an estimation only. However, it was listed that Maragos would not have practiced with the team if they had held a practice.

Maragos is the primary backup to S Earl Thomas at free safety and is a core special teams player for Seattle. His absence could play a role in Saturday's game against the Saints.

LB K.J. Wright was officially ruled out as he continues he recovery from a broken bone in his foot suffered against the San Francisco 49ers on Dec. 8. It appears as though Wright will be available to play next week if Seattle should advance this weekend.

DT Jordan Hil is doubtful after being listed on the injury report for the first time Thursday with a groin injury. However, Hill likely would have been inactive for the game anyway as only 46 players are active for the game.
