It’s Week 2 of the NFL season and the Seattle Seahawks are set to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in a game played in the early time slot. As such, the inactives for the game are already out, and a couple of Seattle draft picks from this spring appear ready to make their regular season NFL debut.

As was expected, Joey Hunt and David Moore are both out with injuries, and while some fans had hoped that Poona Ford would play, the leg injury he suffered in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals was apparently too much. Same goes for both Tedric Thompson and Neiko Thorpe, while free agent acquisition Ziggy Ansah is again a no go with his surgically reconstructed shoulder. Rounding out the inactives is fourth round wide receiver Gary Jennnings.

In contrast to Jennings inactive status, seventh round rookie receiver out of Hawaii, John Ursua is active and appears likely to make his NFL debut today, along with first round pick L.J. Collier. Those two bookended the Seahawks 2019 draft, and now they should both make their NFL debut on the road against the hated Steelers.
