Red Bryant must have been pretty convincing in talking with Pete Carroll this morning. Even though Bryant did not practice this week because of plantar fasciitis, he is on the active roster and will start today.
Linebacker Leroy Hill had a different result, however, and is on the inactive list with a ankle issue, which means Malcolm Smith likely will start at outside linebacker.
As expected, Marcus Trufant (hamstring) is not active today, so Walter Thurmond will be Seattle’s nickel cornerback in passing situations.
For Chicago, receiver Devin Hester (concussion) and Chris Spencer (knee) are on the inactive list.
