There are no surprise inactives for the Seahawks on Sunday. Only offensive tackle Jarriel King was questionable on the Friday injury report with a hamstring injury. King is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Bears.

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson will get the start. Jackson is the healthiest he has been in months since his pectoral injury and is reportedly back at near full strength.

Wide receiver Ricardo Lockette is inactive. Lockette was promoted this week from the practice squad to the active roster, but was not expected to be active on game day.

For the Bears, both quarterback Jay Cutler (right thumb) and running back Matt Forte (knee) had been ruled out of the game on Friday’s injury report.

Wide receiver Devin Hester, questionable heading into the weekend with an ankle issue, is active against the Seahawks.

The following players are inactive on Sunday:


QB Josh Portis
OT Jarriel King
G Paul Fanaika
WR Ricardo Lockette
S Jeron Johnson
LB Adrian Moten
DT Pep Levingston


QB Jay Cutler
RB Matt Forte
TE Andre Smith
OL Levi Horn
DL Henry Melton
S Major Wright
