Ryan Neal Active, Al Woods Inactive For Seahawks' Week 15 Game vs. 49ers

A look at who’s in and who’s out for the Seahawks’ Week 15 game against the 49ers.


The Seahawks will be without a key piece of their defense for Thursday's game against the 49ers, but will have another important defensive starter who was listed as questionable.

Nose tackle Al Woods, who left Sunday's game against Carolina with an Achilles injury, is inactive after not practicing all week, while starting safety Ryan Neal is active despite a knee injury that had him listed as questionable.

Running back Kenneth Walker III, who missed last week's game with an ankle injury, is active as expected.

Running back DeeJay Dallas (ankle) and cornerback Tre Brown (illness) are inactive after being listed as questionable on Wednesday, while safety Joey Blount (back) is active after also being questionable.

Neal playing through injury hardly comes as a surprise based on what he has done in recent weeks. After leaving Seattle's Week 12 games with elbow and shoulder injuries, Neal was questionable in Week 13, but started that game, only to have to leave that win over the Rams with a knee injury. Neal was again listed as questionable for last week's game due to the knee injury, but he played through that.

"I'm always ready to go," Neal said after last weekend's game. "No matter if I'm beat up or not, two-six will always strap his helmet up and I'm going, point blank, period. Hey, I can be banged up, no matter what the case is; everybody is banged up at this point of the season. That's just what you do it for. That's the game."

Also active is running back Godwin Igwebuike, who was elevated off the practice squad earlier in the day. Igwebuike is expected to handle kick return duties after gaining 104 yards on three returns in his Seahawks debut last weekend.
