Seahawks down four starters for game against Cardindals

Seattle Seahawks v Arizona Cardinals

SEATTLE -- The Seahawks will be without four starters for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Cornerback Shaquill Griffin was ruled inactive and will miss a second straight game due to a strained hamstring for Seattle. Griffin joins left tackle Duane Brown, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and free safety Quandre Diggs as players ruled out for the game against the Cardinals.

Brown had been ruled out on Saturday due to knee and biceps injuries. Clowney (core) and Diggs (ankle) had been doubtful to play as well as all three players had been unable to practice during the week.

Akeem King will start at left cornerback in place of Griffin with Lano Hill expected to take Diggs' spot in the secondary.

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks is active and will return to the lineup after missing two games with a hamstring strain. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah is also active after missing the last two weeks due to an stinger. Tight end Luke Willson returns to the lineup after missing the last three games with a hamstring strain as well.

Tight end Tyrone Swoopes, wide receiver John Ursua and guard Phil Haynes are healthy scratches for Seattle.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals are fully healthy.

Wide receiver Christian Kirk (ankle), defensive lineman Caraun Reid (knee) and offensive lineman Justin Pugh had been questionable to play, but all are active against the Seahawks.
