Benson Mayowa & Marquise Blair Inactive For Seahawks' Week 3 Game At Minnesota Vikings

The Seahawks will be without five players due to injury for Sunday’s game against the Vikings.


MINNEAPOLIS—The Seahawks will be missing one of their top pass rushers for Sunday's game against the Vikings, with linebacker Benson Mayowa inactive due to a neck injury. They'll also be without safety Marquise Blair, who was not on the final injury report of the week but apparently had something come up in pregame warmups. Blair had been on the injury report with a knee injury earlier in the week.

Mayowa, who has a sack, five tackles, two tackles for loss and two quarterback hits in two games, was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.

Also out due to injury are right tackle Brandon Shell (ankle), running back Rashaad Penny (calf) and receiver Dee Eskridge (concussion), all of whom were ruled out Friday.

The Seahawks did add defensive line depth on Saturday, elevating Robert Nkemdiche from the practice squad for the second week in a row. He will be active, as is receiver Cody Thompson, who will be making his NFL debut after being elevated from the practice squad Saturday.

The Vikings will be without Pro-Bowl running back Dalvin Cook, who was listed as questionable with an ankle injury.
