PHILADELPHIA—The Seahawks will be without one of their top defensive players for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Jadeveon Clowney, who is coming off of an NFC Defensive Player of the Week performance against the 49ers, is inactive after not practicing all week due to a hip injury.
Clowney's hip injury occurred in Seattle's Week 10 win over San Francisco, and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Friday that he was away from the team for "a little off campus treatment."
On a positive note, receiver Tyler Lockett is active, as expected, despite sustaining a shin contusion against the 49ers that required a two-night hospital stay in the Bay Area.
The Seahawks will be without two other players due to injury in addition to Clowney—tight end Luke Willson, who was listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury, and cornerback Neiko Thorpe, who was questionable with a groin injury.
With Willson inactive, the Seahawks will have two healthy tight ends for the game, Jacob Hollister, who is coming off of back-to-back strong outings in which he had three touchdown receptions, and Tyrone Swoopes, who was promoted off of the practice squad on Friday.
The Eagles, meanwhile, will be without several key offensive players, as Pro-Bowl right tackle Lane Johnson, starting running back Jordan Howard and receivers Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery are all inactive. With Johnson out, rookie Andre Dillard will start at right tackle. Dillard is a first round pick out of Washington State University who is a graduate of Woodinville High School.
Here are the inactives for both teams:
WR John Ursua
