Seahawks’ Nazair Jones, Dion Jordan inactive against Eagles
The Seahawks defensive front is down a couple more members with Nazair Jones and Dion Jordan declared out for Sunday night’s game against Philadelphia.
Jones could not practice this week because of a sprained ankle while Jordan will miss his second consecutive game because of a neck injury.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that the five Seahawks players who were listed as questionable – a list that included four starters – are all active as safety Earl Thomas, offensive tackle Duane Brown, linebacker Bobby Wagner and tight end Jimmy Graham are all in uniform. Linebacker D.J. Alexander, a special-teams ace, is also active after being listed as questionable.
Rodney Coe, who was promoted to the regular roster this week, is inactive as well, giving the Seahawks just seven defensive linemen who are active and in uniform.
Safety Kam Chancellor and guard Oday Aboushi had already been ruled out while receiver David Moore is inactive. Moore was promoted to the active roster two weeks ago as the Seahawks were worried about losing him to another team.
The Eagles are missing starting middle linebacker Joe Walker, who was questionable because of a neck injury. Also inactive for Philadelphia: QB Nate Sudfeld, WR Marcus Johnson, DE Steven Means, T Will Beatty and DT Elijah Qualls.
