Justin Britt Active & Other Notes On Seahawks vs. Texans Inactives

Notes on the inactives for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.

The Seahawks will have Justin Britt available for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans despite the center missing the first two days of practice this week with a sprained ankle. Britt was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, though Seahawks coach Pete Carroll did note that Britt made it through that day’s practice well, a good sign for his chances of playing.

Carroll also noted that if Britt played in this game, Ethan Pocic will make the start at left guard. Pocic, who also serves as Seattle's backup center, started last week's game with Luke Joeckel sidelined, and split time there with Mark Glowinski.

Also active despite being listed as questionable are cornerback Jeremy Lane (finger/groin) and defensive end Marcus Smith (ankle). Only two Seattle players are inactive for Sunday's game due to injury, Joeckel, who is recovering from knee surgery, and C.J. Prosise, who was listed as doubtful with an ankle injury.

Veteran defensive end Dwight Freeney, who signed with Seattle on Tuesday, is active as expected.

"He has picked stuff up immediately," Carroll said Friday. "I don't know how he can learn so fast. He has great feel for that. I do know how he learned some of it because he played for Danny (Quinn) at Atlanta, and that's really helped him. No hesitation on playing him this weekend. He's ready to go."
