Seahawks vs. Vikings inactives: Baldwin sits, Downs plays

Seattle is without its No. 1 receiver; Mountlake Terrace grad Devante Downs is active for Minnesota.

Here’s the inactives report for Monday night’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings at CenturyLink Field:


Inactive: FB Tre Madden, CB Kalan Reed, LB K.J. Wright, C Joey Hunt, G D.J. Fluker, WR Doug Baldwin, DE Branden Jackson.

Notes: The biggest piece of news is that No. 1 receiver Baldwin will not play after being listed as questionable because of a hip injury. Seattle also has to make due without arguably its best run blocker as Fluker (hamstring) doesn’t suite up after being listed as doubtful, meaning Jordan Simmons likely moves into the lineup at right guard. Seattle is once again without Wright, as the Pro Bowl weak-side linebacker misses his fourth straight game since the recurrence of his knee injury. However, starting defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (foot) is back after a one-week absence. Madden (chest), primarily a special teams player, also misses out because of injury.


Inactive: QB Kyle Sloter, WR Chad Beebe, CB Trae Waynes, RB Mike Boone, TE David Morgan, DE Tashawn Bower, DT Jalyn Holmes.

Notes: The Vikings are a little short in the secondary as starting left cornerback Waynes (concussion) sits this one out, while starting strong safety Andrew Sendejo (groin) remains on injured reserve. Minnesota continues to be without a pair of back-up pass-catching options in Beebe (hamstring) and Morgan (knee). Starting middle linebacker Eric Kendricks, who was listed as questionable because of a rib injury, will play. Mountlake Terrace High School graduate Devante Downs, a rookie linebacker for the Vikings who has been in and out of the lineup all season long, is active.
