Sheldon Richardson Inactive For Seahawks vs. Redskins; Kam Chancellor & Bobby Wagner Active

The Seahawks will be without one key defensive player, as Sheldon Richardson is inactive with an oblique injury.

The Seahawks had several key defensive players listed as questionable for Sunday's game, and while the news is good on linebacker Bobby Wagner and safety Kam Chancellor, who are active, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson won't play Sunday due to an oblique injury sustained in practice this week.

Chancellor (ankle) and Wagner (hamstring) both returned to practice Friday, indicating they had a good shot to play, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said they still needed to see how Wagner’s hamstring responded to that work to make a determination on his availability.

C.J. Prosise (ankle) was also able to practice Friday, and Carroll said the running back "looked really good," but he is again inactive. Receiver Tanner McEvoy was also listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury, but is active.

Free safety Earl Thomas is out with a hamstring injury, meaning Bradley McDougald will make his first start with the Seahawks. Cornerback Jeremy Lane is also inactive due to a thigh contusion.  

As expected, newly-acquired left tackle Duane Brown is active and expected to start. With Brown suiting up, Rees Odhiambo, who had started the previous seven games at left tackle, is inactive.

Washington, meanwhile, continues to deal with a number of injuries to key players. Inactive Sunday are three of five starting linemen, two top tight ends, a starting receiver and a starting defensive tackle.
