SEATTLE -- Due to the number of players already ruled out or listed as doubtful on Friday's final injury report, there aren't any surprises on the Seahawks' inactive list.

Strong safety Kam Chancellor (neck) and guard Oday Aboushi (shoulder) were ruled out after the the final practice on Friday. Chancellor isn't expected to play again this season, but the team hasn't placed him on injured reserve yet. The reason for not doing so is likely due to salary cap reasons.

Defensive tackle Nazair Jones injured his ankle in practice on Thursday when he stepped on the foot of a teammate. He was listed as doubtful and wasn't expected to play. Defensive end Dion Jordan is going to miss a second straight game due to a stinger. He was also doubtful to play.

Seattle also made defensive tackle Rodney Coe inactive after being promoted to the active roster this week. With Jones, Coe and Jordan out, Seattle is a bit thin at defensive tackle against the league's second-ranked rush defense. Quinton Jefferson can play some defensive tackle as well to rotate with Sheldon Richardson and Jarran Reed, which should give enough depth if no injuries occur.

Wide receiver David Moore is also a healthy scratch after being promoted to the roster last week.

Seattle only needed six inactive players as they only have 52 players on their active roster. The team placed linebacker Josh Forrest on injured reserve on Saturday after sustaining a sprained foot last week against the 49ers.

The Eagles come into the game with very little injury issues.

Linebacker Joe Walker was the only player listed on the team's final injury report. He was deemed questionable with a neck injury and did not practice during the week.

The Eagles do have tackle Jason Peters, linebacker Jordan Hicks and running back Darren Sproles on injured reserve, but Walker is the only player on the team's active 53-man roster dealing with an injury of significance.
