Ahead of the Seattle Seahawks third primetime game in the last four weeks, the team announced their inactives for Sunday night vs the New England Patriots: As expected, strong safety Kam Chancellor will return after missing four games, while Bradley Sowell and Luke Willson will be out again despite full practices last week.

With Sowell, out, UDFA rookie George Fant will make his third start at left tackle. A strong game by him could keep Sowell on the sidelines indefinitely. Without Willson, the team will again be featuring Nick Vannett and Brandon Williams behind Jimmy Graham. The biggest surprise might be that of Tanner McEvoy, who has been active for all but one game this season.
The team will also be without running back Thomas Rawls again, with the hope that he’ll be ready to go next week against the Philadelphia Eagles; the team will feature C.J. Prosise, Christine Michael, and Alex Collins vs the Patriots.
Tyvis Powell, Rees Odhiambo, and Michael Bennett are also inactive.
New England’s inactives include running back Dion Lewis and cornerback Eric Rowe:
