The Seattle Seahawks have played both of their last two games without two starting offensive linemen, as both D.J. Fluker and Duane Brown missed each of the last two games with injuries. Brown has been nursing a biceps strain since the Week 3 loss to the New Orleans Saints, while Fluker has not played since injuring a hamstring in the first quarter of the Week 5 win over the Los Angeles Rams.
Both are set to be active for the Hawks against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8, however, it remains to be seen whether, and how much, each of them actually plays. Fluker had seen his spot at right guard filled by second year player Jamarco Jones, and early in the week Pete Carroll stated who starts at right guard in Week 8 would come down to the competition between the two this week in practice.

So, the full list of inactives is:
- Quinton Jefferson,
- Lano Hill,
- Quandre Diggs,
- Gary Jennings,
- John Ursua,
- Tre Flowers and
- C.J. Prosise.
The fact that cornerback Tre Flowers is inactive is certainly a bit of a surprise, and could be a big blow to a pass defense that will need to turn to backups to slow down Julio Jones.
