Here are the inactives for Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium:
Inactive: TE Luke Willson, DE Jadeveon Clowney, CB Shaquill Griffin, DE Ziggy Ansah, G Phil Haynes, LB Mychal Kendricks, G Jordan Roos.
Notes: Seattle, which already has pass-rush issues, plays without its top two pass rushers as Clowney didn’t make the trip because of a combination of a core muscle injury and the flu, and Ansah (neck) misses a second straight game after being listed as questionable. The Seahawks also play without two other starters on defense as Griffin (hamstring) misses his first game of the season after being considered questionable and Kendricks (hamstring) sits out his second straight. On offense, breakout candidate RB Rashaad Penny (knee) was put on injured reserve after getting hurt in last week’s 28-12 road loss against the Los Angeles Rams, and Wilson (hamstring) misses a fourth straight contest. G Ethan Pocic (neck) was activated off injured reserve to take Penny’s spot on the roster and is active.
Inactive: DE Marquis Haynes, TE Greg Olsen, DE Christian Miller, T Garrett McGhin, LB Ramik Wilson, DT Woodrow Hamilton, CB Corn Elder.
Notes: The Panthers have already been without starting QB Cam Newton, who’s on injured reserve because of a foot injury — Kyle Allen continues to start in Newton’s place. And Carolina will also be without Newton’s favorite receiving target as Olsen (concussion) sits out for a second straight game. Starting LT Greg Little (ankle) was placed on IR this week, and an already-depleted defensive line — former Pro Bowl DTs Dontari Poe (quadriceps) and Kawann Short (shoulder) are on IR — plays without back-up pass rusher Marquis Haynes (knee). However, a pair of starters in S Eric Reid (illness) and LB Mario Addison (chest) play after being listed as questionable.
