The full list of inactive players was released prior to game time, and here’s who will not be seeing playing time during the game.
Most notable of the injured Seattle players who will watch the game from the sidelines is running back C.J. Prosise, who is listed as out with a shoulder injury. During the week, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Prosise was listed as a game-time decision. He hasn’t played since Week 11 when he suffered the injury, a broken shoulder blade against the Eagles on November 20.
Starting running back Thomas Rawls is expected to dominate the workload once again, NFL.com reported. On January 7 in Seattle’s Wild Card victory against the Detroit Lions, Rawls carried the offense through the game until the passing game picked up in the second half. Rawls carried the ball 27 times for 161 yards, scoring 1 touchdown.
Seattle will also try to get back to the NFC Championship game January 22 without wide receiver Kasen Williams, running back Terrence Magee, linebacker Ronald Powell, offensive tackle Bradley Sowell, tight end Nick Vannett and defensive tackle John Jenkins.
