Strong safety Kam Chancellor is among the inactive players for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
Strong safety Kam Chancellor is inactive for the Seattle Seahawks Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, meaning Kelcie McCray will get the first start of his career.
Chancellor did not practice this week while battling what the team termed a pelvis injury that he suffered in the first quarter of last Sunday’s win at Baltimore. McCray played the final three quarters of that game and will step in again Sunday.
It will be the fourth game Chancellor has missed due to injury in his Seattle career, including two last year due to a groin injury. He also sat out the first two games of this season due to a holdout.
Seattle’s other inactives are: RB Marshawn Lynch, OLKristjan Sokoli, TEs Chase Coffman and Anthony McCoy and defensive linemen Jordan Hill and A.J. Francis.
Lynch (abdomen), McCoy (ankle) and Hill (toe) all have injury issues while Coffman, Francis and Sokili are healthy scratches.
That means all three of the team’s other tailbacks — Derrick Coleman, Bryce Brown and Christine Michael — are active today and could see action.
It also means two players who had injury issues during the week — tight end Luke Willson (ribs) and cornerback DeShawn Shead (ankle) — will play. That’s no surprise as coach Pete Carroll had said Friday each would play.
Here are details on Cleveland’s inactives.
