Bobby Wagner Inactive for Sunday's Game vs. Carolina Panthers. Marshawn Lynch will play

The Seahawks will be thin at linebacker Sunday, with Bobby Wagner, Brock Coyle and Nick Moody all sidelined by injuries. RB Marshawn Lynch, however, is back after a two-game absence.

The Seahawks will be without All-Pro middle linebacker Bobby Wagner for Sunday's game against Carolina. Wagner, who suffered a pectoral strain last week in Cincinnati, is inactive after being listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.

There is good news for Seattle on the injury front, however, with Marshawn Lynch active after missing the previous two games with a hamstring injury.

With Wagner out, K.J. Wright is expected to move from weakside linebacker to middle linebacker, with Kevin Pierre-Louis coming in to play Wright's usual spot. The Seahawks are a bit thin in terms of linebacker depth for this game, with Brock Coyle (knee) and Nick Moody (ankle) also inactive.

Also out because of injuries are defensive tackle Jordan Hill (quad), defensive end Frank Clark (hamstring), cornerback Tye Smith (hip) and cornerback Marcus Burley (thumb). In other words, Seattle's entire inactive list was decided by injuries.

Here are inactives for both teams:
