Here are the inactives for Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals at CenturyLink Field:
Inactive: WR Gary Jennings, WR John Ursua, CB Parry Nickerson, C Joey Hunt, WR David Morre, DE Ziggy Ansah, DE L.J. Collier.
Notes: Today the Seahawks unwrap their latest Christmas present as DE Jadeveon Clowney, the former first-overall draft pick who was acquired from Houston last weekend, makes his Seattle debut. However, two other DEs don’t play today. Ansah, the team’s big free-agent signing who was listed as questionable as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery, is out. Meanwhile Collier, Seattle’s first-round pick in this year’s draft, has to wait for his NFL debut as he was already ruled out because of the ankle injury suffered during training camp. Starting LG Mike Iupati, who was listed as questionable with a foot injury, is active. Reserves Hunt (ankle) and Moore (shoulder) were ruled out during the week.
Inactive: QB Jake Dolegala, WR Auden Tate, WR A.J. Green, RB Trayveon Williams, DE Jordan Willis, LT Cordy Glenn, DE Andrew Brown.
Notes: The Bengals open the season already missing two key offensive starters because of injury. Green, Cincinnati’s star receiver, is expected to miss multiple weeks after suffering a sprained ankle during training camp that required surgery, while Glenn is out because of a concussion suffered in Cincinnati’s second preseason game. Two offensive backups — Williams (foot) and Tate (knee) — also sit this one out because of injuries.
