The Seahawks travel out to Cincinnati to play the Bengals today. I can actually verify that people do live in Ohio, by choice, because I was there in August. It’s a strange place. Don’t eat the chili.
The Seahawk three point dogs in their first chance since Week 1 to have a winning record. Unfortunately they will have to do it without the services of one Mode, Beast.
Here is the complete list of inactive players for Seattle.
Tye Smith, CB (Hip)
Marshawn Lynch, RB (Hamstring)
Marcus Burley, DB (Hand)
Kevin Pierre-Louis, LB (Hamstring)
Kristjan Sokoli, G
Demarcus Dobbs, DE (Shoulder)
*Fred Jackson, RB. Jackson will be a game time decision. He’s running through warm ups and Seattle will see how he feels. My guess is don’t count on him playing, and definitely don’t start him in your fantasy lineup.
Greg Little, WR
Mario Alford, WR
Chris Lewis-Harris, CB
C.J. Uzomah, TE
Marcus Hardison, DT
Pat Sims, DT
Margus Hunt, DE
All Bengals players appear to be healthy scratches.
This was going to be atough game for the Seahawks, anyway, but combining the short week with not having Lynch for yet another week really hurts. The offensive line is going to be a little less offensive to our senses if Wilson and Rawls are going to have a chance against a very stout Bengals defense.
So call your bookies and set your fantasy lineups. It’s probably going to be another nail biter led by Nanobubbles and The Wild Ginger.
