No Lofa or Walt

Middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu (hamstring) and tackle Walter Jones (knee) will not play today against the Bears.

They are among the Seahawks inactive players. The others:

  • CB Josh Wilson (ankle)
  • FB Justin Griffith (knee)
  • LB Leroy Hill (groin)
  • OT Sean Locklear (ankle)
  • DE Michael Bennett
  • QB Matt Hasselbeck

David Hawthorne will start for Tatupu, with Brandon Frye getting his first NFL start because Jones and Locklear are out. Kelly Jennings takes over at left cornerback for Wilson. Owen Schmitt gets the start at fullback for Griffith. Seneca Wallace will start at QB.

But, Chris Spencer will start at center ā€“ his first action since tearing a thigh muscle in the second preseason game ā€“ and DT Brandon Mebane returns to the lineup after sitting out last week with a calf injury.

Inactive for the Bears:

  • WR Juaquin Iglesias
  • WR Devin Aromashodu
  • CB DeAngelo Smith
  • CB D.J. Moore
  • LB Pisa Tinoisamoa
  • OG Lance Louis
  • DT Matt Toeaina
  • TE Desmond Clark
