All three Seahawks listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, including a pair of starting offensive linemen, are active for Sunday's game against Jacksonville Jaguars.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expressed optimism on Friday that left tackle Duane Brown (illness) would be fine despite "feeling lousy" during the week, while left guard Damien Lewis will be back after missing last week's game with a shoulder injury. Running back Alex Collins was also questionable with the groin injury he was able to play through last week, and he will again be able to play.
Defensive end Darrell Taylor is active, as expected, meaning he only missed one game following what at a time was a very scary-looking neck injury in Pittsburgh.
Quarterback Jacob Eason, who was claimed off waivers last week, is active as expected, meaning he will serve as the backup quarterback behind Geno Smith. Jake Luton, who has been elevated from the practice squad the last two weeks, has served as the backup the previous two games with Smith starting for an injured Russell Wilson.
Linebacker Tanner Muse, a 2020 third-round pick who was elevated from the practice squad on Saturday, is active as expected, meaning he will make his NFL debut after missing his rookie season in Las Vegas with a toe injury. Muse likely will take on an immediate special teams role, especially with Marquise Blair out with a knee injury.
Here are the inactives for both teams:
- S Marquise Blair
- CB Bless Austin
- C Dakoda Shepley
- T Stone Forsythe
- TE Tyler Mabry
- DE L.J. Collier
- CB Chris Claybrooks
- TE Jacob Hollister
- DE/OLB Jordan Smith
