Seattle Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor will miss his third straight game with a pelvis injury Sunday at Arizona while left tackle Russell Okung will sit out his second straight game with a calf injury.

The two were among Seattle’s seven inactive players for the 1:25 p.m. kickoff against the Cardinals.

Seattle’s other inactives are: CB Tye Smith, RB Marshawn Lynch, RG J.R.Sweezy, TE Luke Willson and DT A.J. Francis.

Okung will be replaced by Alvin Bailey while rookie Mark Glowinski is expected to make his first career start at right guard in place of Sweezy, who is out with a concussion.

Kelcie McCray will start for the third straight week in place of Chancellor, who was hurt early in the win at Baltimore on Dec. 13. Chancellor returned to practice this week but was listed as questionable and the team is undoubtedly playing it cautious with him with a playoff spot sewed up.

Okung hurt his calf late in the win over the Browns on Dec. 20. He practiced on Wednesday but did not recover well and was held out the rest of the week.

That Okung is inactive means the Seahawks will be playing without their two most experienced offensive linemen while also going without their top two running backs (Lynch, Thomas Rawls) and top two tight ends (Willson and Jimmy Graham).

Every player inactive Sunday due to injury, though, could be back for the playoffs next week.

Willson and Sweezy are each missing their first game of the season with concussions suffered in last week’s home loss to the Rams.

Without Willson, the Seahawks will go with Cooper Helfet and Chase Coffman at tight end. Coffman has yet to play for the Seahawks.
