Seahawks Inactives: Collins, Brown and Lewis all will play vs Jaguars
The Seahawks are still without star quarterback Russell Wilson and No. 1 running back Chris Carson, but they’ll be about as healthy as they can be otherwise when they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon.
Entering the contest with the 1-5 Jaguars, the Seahawks listed running back Alex Collins (running back), starting left tackle Duane Brown (illness) and starting left guard Damien Lewis (shoulder) as questionable to play. All three avoided Seattle’s inactive list that was released late Sunday morning, however, clearing them to play in the 1:05 p.m. game.
The Seahawks have six players who are inactive; of those six, just defensive back Marquise Blair is out with an injury. He fractured his kneecap last week and is out for the rest of the season.
The five healthy scratches are cornerback Bless Austin, center Dakoda Shepley, offensive tackle Stone Forsythe, tight end Tyler Mabry and, most notably, defensive end L.J. Collier.

For Collier, the Seahawks’ 2019 first-round pick, this is the sixth time in eight games that he’s been a healthy scratch, which comes after he started every game for Seattle a year ago. This further fuels speculation he could be traded before Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline.
Collins has been the Seahawks’ go-to back since Carson went out with his neck injury, and he’s just two weeks removed from a 100-yard performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Brown has played every game this season while Lewis was inactive last week during Seattle’s loss to the New Orleans Saints.
The Jaguars have a number of former Seahawks players and coaches on their roster and staff, but one former Hawks standout – tight end Jacob Hollister – is a healthy scratch for Sunday. Overall, the Jaguars are very healthy, in large part because they are coming off their bye week.

Starting nose tackle DaVon Hamilton (shoulder) and rookie cornerback Tyson Campbell (toe) will both play for the Jaguars despite being listed as questionable.
