The biggest news about Seattle’s inactive list for Sunday’s game against Dallas is who isn’t on it — strong safety Kam Chancellor.
Chancellor had been listed as questionable for the Seahawks today with a strained hip that held him out of practice Thursday and Friday. Coach Pete Carroll had said it would be a gametime decision whether Chancellor would play after they viewed him during warmups.
Chancellor, though, apparently warmed up well and is on the active list today.
However, center Max Unger was among the seven inactives for Seattle, unable to make it back from a strained foot suffered against Washington. Bellevue High alum Stephen Schilling will get the start in place of Unger.
The other six inactives for Seattle are: CB Tharold Simon, TE Zach Miller, OL Andrew McDonald, WR Kevin Norwood, RB Christine Michael and WR Paul Richardson.
Simon and Miller are each still rehabbing from recent surgeries.
The rest are healthy inactives, and maybe the most eye-opening one there is Richardson, the team’s first pick in the 2014 draft who has one catch in four games and now inactive for the first time.
That leaves Seattle with just five receivers on the active list for the first time this season.
Also active for Seattle is OL Alvin Bailey, who returned to practice this week after missing the Washington game with an oblique injury. Also active for Seattle today is newly-acquired Patrick Lewis, who will serve as the backup center today.
Inactive for Dallas are: QB Dustin Vaughan, S Jakar Hamilton, LB Bruce Carter, DE Jack Crawford, DT Davon Coleman, NT Ken Bishop and OT Donald Hawkins.
