An important game for the Seahawks this week. Lose, and they fall to 6-6 and will need help from other teams to get into the playoffs. Win, and they’re 7-5 and will control their own destiny. This late in the season, you can’t keep waiting to later. Sometimes you just need to get it done now.
Live Chat will begin about 5 minutes before kickoff.
Seahawks inactives: Jermaine Kearse, Charly Martin, Marcus Trufant, Leroy Hill, JR Sweezy, Mike Person, Jaye Howard
You’ll notice that Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner aren’t on that list. Their suspension were postposed for 1 week for the appeals process. Expect them to begin serving their suspensions next week.
Marcus Trufant hurt his hamstring on Thursday, and that is why he’s not available today. Walter Thurmond will finally make his season debut this week and will take Trufant’s snaps. Thurmond has been recovering from a broken leg suffered over a year ago. He began the year on the Physically Unable To Preform (PUP) list.
The other notable name on the list is weak side LB LeRoy Hill. He hurt his ankle and wont be playing. Mike Morgan gets the start in his place this week.
Bears inactives: Josh McCown, Alshon Jeffery, Devin Hester, D.J. Moore, Chris Spencer, Matt Toeaina, Cheta Ozougwu.
