GREEN BAY, Wis.—Left tackle Duane Brown is back for the Seahawks after a three-game absence, which is very good news for Seattle's offensive line heading into Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.
Brown is only three weeks removed from knee surgery, and only returned to practice on Friday. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Brown would work out pregame to determine his availability. Also active is tackle George Fant, who like Brown was considered a game-day decision due to a groin injury.
Fant had started the previous two games in place of Brown, but with Brown back, that will allow Fant to go back to his role as a big tight end.
Seattle will not be at full strength on their offensive line, however, as left guard Mike Iupati is inactive for a second straight week due to a neck injury. Jamarco Jones will again start in Iupati's place. This will be Jones' fifth start this year, having started two games at right guard, one at left tackle, and two playoff games at left guard.
Also inactive due to injury are defensive end Ziggy Ansah, who left last week's win in Philadelphia with a neck injury, and safety Marquise Blair, who injured his ankle in practice on Thursday.
Back from injury after missing last week's game are receivers Jaron Brown (concussion) and Malik Turner (concussion).
