Expect Seahawks to let Russ Cook extra with multiple RBs inactive against 49ers

When the Seattle Seahawks take the field Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, the team will do so with a personnel grouping that will likely lead to them asking Russell Wilson to cook even more than he has so far this season. To this point Wilson has been able to carry the team to a 5-1 record on the strength off his right shoulder, and with injuries decimating the running back corps that will be even more true Sunday.

Specifically, reports Sunday have the Seahawks set to be without all three of their top running backs in Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer, leaving just rookie fourth round pick DeeJay Dallas healthy at the position.

That could create some interesting situations where wide receiver David Moore or fullback Nick Bellore see some snaps in the backfield, and if nothing else should be interesting to watch. In any case the inactives report has been filed.

So, the inactives for the Hawks against the Niners are:

  • CB Shaquill Griffin
  • LG Mike Iupati
  • RB Carlos Hyde
  • RB Chris Carson
  • CB Ugo Amadi
  • S Jamal Adams
  • DE Benson Mayowa

Interestingly, the Seahawks have six tight ends on the gameday active roster in Greg Olsen, Will Dissly, Jacob Hollister, Luke Willson, Colby Parkinson and Stephen Sullivan.
