No Surprises On Seahawks' Week 17 Inactive List

The Seahawks will be without, among others, tight end Greg Olsen and guard Mike Iupati due to injury for their regular-season finale against the 49ers. 


The Seahawks will play their final regular-season game minus a few key players due to injury or illness, but there are no surprises on their Week 17 inactive list ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Among those out is Greg Olsen. The veteran tight end was listed as questionable on Friday, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Olsen would get the weekend off to help his foot recover for the playoffs.

"We're going keep him out of this game is what we're going to do," Carroll said. "Just to make sure that he's ready next week. Just a little flare-up from last week, but he handled it well, practiced today and got through it and all that, but we just think the best thing to do is to give him another weekend.

"He just had a little bit of a tweak last week and we just want to make sure that it doesn't develop and go past that. So we were real careful with him this week, got him a little bit of work today. So we think giving him all the way to Wednesday will help him."

Also out due to injury is left guard Mike Iupati, who will miss a second straight game with a neck injury. Jordan Simmons is expected to start in Iupati's place, which would be his sixth start at left guard this season.

Running back Carlos Hyde, who was initially listed as questionable with a non-COVID-19 illness, was downgraded to out Saturday and did not make the trip. In addition to Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny, the Seahawks will also have Alex Collins available at running back after he was elevated from the practice squad Saturday. Also active after being elevated from the practice squad are receiver Penny Hart and veteran guard Alex Boone, who signed with Seattle earlier this month after two years out of the NFL.

Also active Sunday is cornerback Tre Flowers, who was activated from injured reserve on Saturday.

The Seahawks will also be without right tackle Brandon Shell and reserve safety Damarious Randall, who were both placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday.
