Seahawks vs. Panthers inactives: Doug Baldwin will play

Seattle’s No. 1 receiver had been questionable because of a groin injury; K.J. Wright sits again.

Here’s the inactives report for Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina:


Inactive: RB C.J. Prosise, CB Kalan Reed, LB K.J. Wright, C Joey Hunt, G Jordan Simmons, DE Branden Jackson, DT Poona Ford.

Notes: The Seahawks are once again without Wright. The team’s Pro Bowl weak-side linebacker has appeared in just three games this season because of a knee injury, and this is his second straight missed game after sitting out the first seven. Otherwise Seattle, which had an extra three days rest after beating Green Bay 27-24 two Thursdays ago, is healthy. Receiver Doug Baldwin, listed as questionable on the injury report because of a groin issue picked up during practice this week, made it through pregame testing and is active. Also, a handful of reserves — S Delano Hill (quadriceps), DE Dion Jordan (knee), CB Neiko Thorpe (groin) — return from injuries.


Inactive: G Brendan Mahon, RB Kenjon Barner, G Amini Silatolu, DE Efe Obada, RB Travis Cadet, LB Andre Smith, WR Devin Funches.

Notes: The Panthers, who have dropped two straight to fall back into the wild-card pack, were sweating things out at receiver as both listed starters cropped up on the injury report — Funches (back) was listed as doubtful and Torrey Smith (knee) was listed as questionable. Smith returns from his injury and plays, but Funches, Carolina’s leading receiver, is out. Carolina has also been playing without both its projected starters at tackle as Darryl Williams (knee) and Matt Kalil (knee) are on injured reserve having played a combined one game between them.
