Seahawks Inactives: DE Carlos Dunlap out against the Jets with foot injury
The Seahawks will be without one of their best defensive players against the New York Jets in Week 14 as defensive end Carlos Dunlap has been ruled out of the contest.
Dunlap suffered an injured foot in Seattle’s Week 12 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but he was active in last week’s loss to the New York Giants, playing a limited role.
The Seahawks acquired Dunlap in a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick and backup center B.J. Finney, who did not play a single offensive snap for Seattle. Dunlap has 3.5 sacks since joining the team in Week 9 and the pass rush, which was a weakness before his arrival, has become one of the team’s strengths as the Seahawks now rank in the top 10 in the NFL in sacks.
Also inactive against the Jets are offensive tackle Jamarco Jones, running back Travis Homer, defensive back Ryan Neal, guard Phil Haynes and tackle Cedric Ogbuehi.

Jones was ruled out Friday with a groin injury while Homer was doubtful with a knee injury. Homer has not played since Week 10.
Neal (hip), Ogbuehi (calf) and Haynes (hip and groin) were all questionable to play.
The good news for the Seahawks is that starting right tackle Brandon Shell is back after missing two games with an ankle injury. He, like star safety and fellow ex-Jets player Jamal Adams, is facing his former team for the first time in his career. Shell signed with the Seahawks in free agency this offseason. Ogbuehi started for Shell two weeks ago and Jones started for him last week. With those two out, Chad Wheeler will back up Shell at right tackle.
For the Jets, they enter the contest without starting guard Cameron Clark and starting linebacker Jordan Jenkins, but running back Frank Gore (concussion) and wide receiver Jamison Crowder (calf) are both active and will play.
WR Jamison Crowder is active for #NYJvsSEA
