Luke Willson Active, Nick Vannett Inactive For Seahawks vs. Cardinals

The Seahawks will have tight end Luke Willson for Sunday's game against Arizona despite an ankle injury, but Nick Vannett is inactive due to a back injury.

SEATTLE—Tight end Luke Willson, who injured his ankle in practice Thursday and was listed as questionable Friday, is active for the Seahawks' regular-season finale against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fellow tight end Nick Vannett, however, will not play due to a back injury that caused him to be a late addition to the injury report on Friday. With Vannett out, rookie tight end Tyrone Swoopes is active and set to make his NFL debut a day after being promoted off the practice squad.

Left guard Luke Joeckel is active despite being listed questionable with a foot injury. Also active, as expected, is safety Earl Thomas, who missed Friday's practice due to illness.

Linebacker D.J. Alexander, one of Seattle's top special teams players, is inactive for the second straight week due to a concussion.

The Seahawks made a change at receiver this week, making rookie David Moore active for the first time since he was promoted off the practice squad last month. As a result, Tanner McEvoy is inactive for the first time this season.
