Seahawks vs. Bears inactives: Five starters out for Seattle

LBs Wagner, Wright are among those who sit for the Seahawks, while the Bears are mostly healthy.

Here are the inactives for Monday night’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears at Soldier Field:


Inactive: CB Tre Flowers, S Delano Hill, LB K.J. Wright, LB Bobby Wagner, G Jordan Simmons, G D.J. Fluker, WR Doug Baldwin.

Notes: It’s just Week 2, but the Seahawks already have major injury problems as starters Wagner (groin), Wright (knee), Baldwin (knee), Fluker (hamstring) and Flowers (hamstring) are all out, as is back-up Hill (hamstring). Seattle also had to release DT Tom Johnson this week in order to re-sign S Shalom Luani as secondary depth. LB Mychal Kendricks, signed this week after being infamously released by Cleveland following an insider trading guilty plea, has been suspended by the NFL, but is eligible to play because he’s appealing the ruling. Starting CB Shaquill Griffin plays after being listed as questionable because of a thigh injury. In addition to Luani, three other players who were inactive last week — RB Mike Davis, DT Poona Ford, DT Nazair Jones — are dressed tonight, as is recent signing WR Keenan Reynolds.


Inactive: S DeAndre Houston-Carson, FB Michael Burton, LB Isaiah Irving, LB Kylie Fitts, OL Rashaad Coward, WR Javon Wims, DT Nick Williams.

Notes: Chicago is pretty much at full strength. Houston-Carson (forearm/back) is the only player out injured, and he’s a back-up. The Bears also got back-up tight end Daniel Brown (shoulder) back from injury.
