Here are the inactives for Sunday’s wild card playoff game between the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field:
Inactive: WR Malik Turner, WR Jaron Brown, DE L.J. Collier, T Duane Brown, DT Bryan Mone, LB Mychal Kendricks, G Mike Iupati.
Notes: Seattle continues to be without Duane Brown as he recovers from knee surgery, and the Seahawks are forced to play without Iupati (neck), who was listed as questionable. George Fant and Jamarco Jones are expected to start in a reconfigured left side of the offensive line. Turner (concussion) and Jaron Brown (knee), both reserves, were ruled out prior to the game, meaning Seattle will be a little thin at receiver. Kendricks (knee) remains on the roster, despite suffering a season-ending injury last week, meaning another start for rookie Cody Barton. Back-up G Ethan Pocic (core) was put on IR this week.
On the plus side, Seattle gets a key defensive player back from injury as FS Quandre Diggs (ankle) returns after missing two weeks. Also, DE Jadeveon Clowney (core) remains available despite the lingering issue that continues to limit him in practice. TE Luke Willson (hip) returns from a one-game absence.
Inactive: QB Nate Sudfeld, WR Nelson Agholor, RB Elijah Holyfield, DE Shareef Miller, DE Genard Avery, T Lane Johnson, G Sua Opeta.
Notes: Philadelphia has had all kinds of injury problems this season, and that persisted into the playoffs. The newest issue is on the offensive line, as Pro Bowl RG Brandon Brooks (shoulder) was placed on IR this week, while Johnson (ankle) being out means the Eagles will be without the entire starting right side of its offensive line.
If you think the Eagles have issues on the O-line, just take a look at their situation at receiver as Agholor (knee) is out, while Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (abdominal) are on injured reserve, meaning Philadelphia is without its top three receivers.
One piece of good news for the Eagles is that TE Zach Ertz (ribs), who leads the team in receptions, returns after sitting out the regular season finale. CB Jalen Mills (ankle) also returns.
