Jennings, Thurmond inactive

The Seahawks’ injury list dictated their inactive list:

CB Kelly Jennings

RB Michael Robinson

CB Walter Thurmond

LB Matt McCoy

OL Allen Barbre

OT Russell Okung

TE Anthony McCoy

DT Brandon Mebane

With Jennings (hamstring) and Thurmond (head) out, Roy Lewis will make his first NFL start at right cornerback. When the Seahawks go to their Bandit package that has worked so well the past two weeks, Lewis will slide inside and Nate Ness will be at right corner.

Just re-signed Quinton Ganther will fill in for Robinson (hamstring) when the Seahawks use a fullback. Tyler Polumbus will start at left tackle for Okung (ankle). Kentwan Balmer will start at defensive tackle for Mebane (calf), who also missed the past two games.

But slot receiver Brandon Stokley will play after not practice all week.
