Seahawks vs. Cardinals inactives: Sweezy sits for Seattle

Seattle, already assured a playoff spot, is fielding a full lineup in its regular season finale.

Here’s the inactives report for Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals at CenturyLink Field:

SEATTLE (9-6)

Inactive: FS Tedric Thompson, CB Kalan Reed, RB Bo Scarbrough, LB Emmanuel Ellerbee, G J.R. Sweezy, DE Rasheem Green, DE Dion Jordan.

Notes: Seattle, which has already clinched a playoff spot and only has wild-card seeding to play for, nevertheless is fielding a full roster. Starting LG Sweezy (foot) is out, though he is expected to be back for the playoffs. Starting RG D.J. Fluker (hamstring) is active after being listed as questionable, though he didn’t start last week when active, only coming into the game when Sweezy was injured. Thompson (ankle), Jordan (knee) and RB Rashaad Penny (knee) were all considered game-time decisions along with Fluker, but Penny is the only one of the three who dresses. SS Bradley McDougald (knee), though listed as questionable on the injury report, was always expected to play.

ARIZONA (3-12)

Inactive: WR J.J. Nelson, WR Jalen Tolliver, S D.J. Swearinger, DE Markus Golden, T Zack Golditch, TE Ricky Seals-Jones, DE Benson Mayowa.

Notes: The Cardinals, who are playing out the string, are using a makeshift offensive line as four players who were expected to be starters before the season began — LG Mike Iupati (knee), RG Justin Pugh (knee), LT D.J. Humphries (knee), C A.Q. Shipley (knee) — are on injured reserve, as are three others — T Korey Cunningham (foot), G John Wetzel (neck), G Jeremy Vujnovich (hamstring) — who have started games this season. Starting TE Seals-Jones (shoulder) had already been ruled out, while pass rushers Golden (ankle) and Mayowa (back/knee) sit after being listed as questionable. Swearinger, claimed this week after being waived by Washington, won’t play.
