TORONTO – The Seahawks won’t have to worry about dealing with Leodis McKelvin in today’s game against the Bills at the Rodgers Centre. The NFL’s punt return leader has been named inactive for the game because of groin injury.
That likely leaves Justin Rogers to return punts and Brad Smith to return kickoffs. McKelvin is the only player in the league to rank among the Top 5 in both categories.
There are no surprises among the Seahawks’ list of inactive players, which includes wide receiver Deon Butler, who was signed Saturday.
Also inactive for the Seahawks:
CB Marcus Trufant
CB Walter Thurmond
DB DeShawn Shead
OG Rishaw Johnson
OT Mike Person
DT Jaye Howard
QB Tarvaris Jackson, who was the Seahawks’ starter last season, also is inactive in for the Bills.
The Bills’ other inactive players:
WR Donald Jones
CB T.J. Heath
DT Jay Ross
C Eric Wood
OT Chris Scott
