Seahawks pregame notes and inactives

The countdown to kickoff is now inside of 90 minutes, but the buzz around CenturyLink Field has been noticeable all afternoon. Walking around more than three hours prior to kickoff, there were enough people on the streets to make you think kickoff was an hour away.

No big surprises on the inactive list for either team. Two of the players listed as probable for the Seahawks (Jeremy Lane and Bruce Irvin) are active, while Kevin Norwood’s scratch is likely just because he’s a rookie who only returned to practice last week, and not because he isn’t healthy enough to play.

CB Jeremy Lane, who was limited by a groin injury this week, is active, which is a good thing for Seattle both because he’s their starting nickel corner, and also because with Tharold Simon (knee) unavailable, the Seahawks can’t afford another hit to their depth at corner. And for what it’s worth, Lane looked like he was moving around pretty well before the game during early warmups.

Seahawks inactives: CB Tharold Simon, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, RB Christine Michael, WR Kevin Norwood, WR Phil Bates, TE Cooper Helfet, DE Greg Scruggs.

Packers inactives: QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demitri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, DT Mike Pennel, WR Jeff Janis, TE Brandon Bostick, LB Jayrone Elliott.
