Seahawks vs. Browns inactives: Trouble on the offensive line

Seattle plays without starters Brown and Fluker; Cleveland has issues in the secondary.

Here are the inactives for Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium:

SEATTLE (4-1)

Inactive: WR Gary Jennings, WR John Ursua, RB Rashaad Penny, CB Akeem King, LT Duane Brown, RG D.J. Fluker, DE Branden Jackson.

Notes: Seattle has some serious issues on the offensive line as Brown (biceps), who has the job of protecting QB Russell Wilson’s blind side, and Fluker (hamstring), the Seahawks’ biggest run blocker, both sit this one out after being listed as doubtful. And with Ethan Pocic (back), Seattle’s first option to back up any of the interior line positions, placed on injured reserve, it likely means a first career NFL start for Jamarco Jones in Fluker’s spot — Jones held his own when he came in for Fluker in last Thursday’s 30-29 home victory over the Los Angeles Rams. George Fant, who’s been used mainly as a blocking tight end, will fill in for Brown. With Fant needed at tackle, it means TE Jacob Hollister, just signed off the practice squad, is active, as is G Jordan Roos, also signed off the practice squad. Penny, listed as questionable because of a hamstring injury, is also out.

CLEVELAND (2-3)

Inactive: WR Taywan Taylor, WR Damion Ratley, CB Denzel Ward, CB Greedy Williams, DE Genard Avery, C Austin Corbett, T Kendall Lamm

Notes: Cleveland will try to stop Wilson minus its two starting cornerbacks as Ward and Williams, both considered questionable coming into the game, sit this one out with hamstring injuries. Lamm (knee), the only other player out injured, is a back-up.
