Schmitt inactive; also Cards’ Okeafor

The only surprise among the Seahawks’ inactive players is backup FB Owen Schmitt. It could be an indication that they don’t plan to run a lot today out of a traditional two-back set. Or just that starter Justin Griffith is the better lead blocker.

This is the first time this season that Schmitt has been inactive, and he started a game when Griffith was out with a sprained knee.

Also inactive:

  • SS Jamar Adams
  • DT Red Bryant
  • OG Mike Gibson
  • TE Cameron Morrah
  • OG Mansfield Wrotto
  • DL Derek Walker
  • 3rd QB: Mike Teel

Inactive for the Cardinals:

  • LB Gerald Hayes
  • LB Chike Okeafor
  • PL Herman Johnson
  • OL Brandon Keith
  • TE Dominique Byrd
  • WR Sean Morey
  • TE Ben Patrick
  • 3rd QB: Brian St. Pierre

Ali Highsmith will start Hayes and Bertrand Berry for Okeafor.

Okeafor, the former Seahawk, has been bothered by back spasms.
