Seahawks vs. Bucs inactives: Seattle waits for Gordon

The former All-Pro receiver claimed off waivers this week waits to make his Seahawks debut.

Here are the inactives for Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at CenturyLink Field:

SEATTLE (6-2)

Inactive: WR Josh Gordon, WR Gary Jennings, WR John Ursua, RB C.J. Prosise, S Quandre Diggs, SS Lano Hill, DE Quinton Jefferson.

Notes: All. three players Seattle had listed as doubtful — Diggs (hamstring), Hill (elbow) and Jefferson (oblique) — sit this one out. Also not playing is Gordon, the former All-Pro and oft-troubled receiver who was claimed off waivers from New England on Friday. Gordon (knee) was waived with an injury designation after the Patriots placed him on injured reserve, but the Seahawks believe the injury isn’t major. Seattle placed two starters on injured reserve this week, C Justin Britt (knee) and FS Tedric Thompson (shoulder). That means C Joey Hunt gets his first start of the season, while rookie FS Marquise Blair likely remains in the starting lineup next to SS Bradley McDougald (back), who is expected to be fully available after playing sparingly last week. TE Ed Dickson (knee) has returned to practice and was eligible to come off injured reserve this week, but Seattle chose not to activate him yet.

TAMPA BAY (2-5)

Inactive: CB M.J. Stewart, C Nate Trewyn, T Jerald Hawkins, DE Patrick O’Connor, TE O.J. Howard, WR Amara Darboh, TE Jordan Leggett.

Notes: Tampa Bay is missing one starter because of injury as Howard (hamstring) sits out for second straight game. Fellow TE Cameron Bate (ribs) was listed as questionable, but he’ll suit up. The Buccaneers are otherwise healthy.
