Seahawks expect Lockett for finale despite another injury

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — For the second straight week, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett expects to play despite his injury status being in question. Lockett was listed as questionable on Seattle’s final injury report of the regular season. He says he plans on playing despite a shin injury that led to another set of X-rays for the standout wide receiver. Lockett returned last Sunday against the New York Jets less than two weeks after undergoing surgery to stabilize a broken bone in his left hand. Lockett says the hand held up fine. But Lockett suffered a contusion on his right leg at the spot where he had surgery to repair a fracture in 2016. Lockett says he had X-rays to put his mind at ease that the leg was fine.
