Seahawks vs. Chargers: Amara Darboh, Quinton Jefferson among those not expected to play

NFL: Seattle Seahawks-Minicamp Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

With the Seattle Seahawks’ 2017 NFL preseason opener against the Los Angeles Chargers literally less than an hour from this article’s publish, we have a list of notable players who won’t (or most likely won’t) be seeing any game action tonight.

Doug Baldwin
Tyler Lockett
Luke Willson
Amara Darboh
Jeremy Lane
Marcus Smith
Quinton Jefferson
DJ Alexander

Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta has the details:

With Baldwin, Darboh, and Lockett all not playing, week 1 will provide the likes of J.D. McKissic, Kasen Williams, Tanner McEvoy, and Kenny Lawler more opportunities to prove they belong on the final 53-man roster.

Jefferson being out is a tad disappointing, especially at a time when we need to know who can step up in Malik McDowell’s indefinite absence. Hopefully, as Condotta wrote, it has to do with easing him back into things after he missed most of last season with a knee injury, and not an indication of something to be more concerned about.

Seahawks at Chargers kicks off at 5 PM PT. You can catch the game on either KCPQ-13 FOX or on NFL Network.
