With Okung out, the Seahawks will start Frank Omiyale at left tackle. Now this is no knock on Omiyale, but that is hardly an ideal situation for the Seahawks, particularly when facing Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who is one of the best pass-rushers in football.
The rest of the Seahawks inactives are: WR Charly Martin, RB Kregg Lumpkin, S Winston Guy, CB Jeremy Lane, G James Carpenter and DT Jaye Howard.
Okung won't be the only key player sitting out today; the Cowboys are without starting nose tackle Jay Ratliff and starting center Phil Costa. Dallas' other inactives are WR Cole Beasley, WR Andre Holmes, CB Mario Butler, S Matt Johnson and LB Kyle Wilber.
