When the Seattle Seahawks will take on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday Night Football in Week 7, they will do so without the benefit of two of their veteran starters.

When the Hawks published the Friday injury report, they indicated that strong safety Jamal Adams would not suit up against the Cardinals, and then on Saturday Mike Iupati was downgraded to out as well.

That means the team will once again turn to third year players Ryan Neal and Jordan Simmons. Both Neal and Simmons have performed well when called upon to start by the team, though Simmons has battled injuries that have limited him to just four starts in his three seasons with the Seahawks. With that injury history in mind, and with right guard Damien Lewis also recovering from an ankle injury, it wouldn’t have been a surprise if the Hawks had both B.J. Finney and Kyle Fuller active for the Cardinals game as extra depth on the interior offensive line. Instead, Fuller is also inactive.

So, the full list of six inactives for Seattle against the Cardinals is:

  • S Jamal Adams
  • LG Mike Iupati
  • TE Luke Willson
  • G/C Kyle Fuller
  • DT Anthony Rush
  • WR Penny Hart
