Devon Witherspoon is back after a two game-absence due to a hip injury, and the Seahawks offense will have two of its top playmakers, DK Metcalf and Kenneth Walker III, who are active despite injury concerns.
Those three, along with special teams captain Nick Bellore, were all listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, and all are active for a game that has big playoff implications for both teams.
Jordyn Brooks, who was initially listed as questionable Friday, was downgraded to out on Saturday and is one of three players inactive due to injury along with tackle Jason Peters and defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. With Brooks out, Devin Bush is expected to get the start against the team that selected him in the first round of the 2019 draft.
Also active Sunday are the three players who were signed off the practice squad Saturday—safety Ty Okada, linebacker Patrick O'Connell and tackle Jake Curhan—as well as nose tackle Austin Faoliu, who was elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game. With Witherspoon active, cornerback Kelvin Joseph is inactive despite being elevated from the practice squad Saturday.
Okada, O'Connell and Curhan were added to the roster with safety Jamal Adams and receiver Dee Eskridge going on injured reserve, and with linebacker Frank Clark Sr. being waived.
Here are the inactives for both teams:
- RB Kenny McIntosh
- LB Jordyn Brooks
- T McClendon Curtis
- T Jason Peters
- T Raiqwon O'Neal
- DE Mario Edwards
- CB Kelvin Joseph
- QB Kenny Pickett
- S Trenton Thompson
- CB Darius Rush
- S Minkah Fitzpatrick
- LB Elandon Roberts
- T Dylan Cook
