Linebacker Leroy Hill was not healthy enough to make it through is workout this morning, which means the veteran linebacker will be inactive for today’s game with a hamstring injury.

With Hill out, Malcolm Smith will get his third start at outside linebacker, and backup linebacker Allen Bradford will be active for the first time this season.

Offensive lineman John Moffitt also was a healthy scratch for a second straight week, with rookie J.R. Sweezy getting his third start at right guard this season.

Here’s the full list.

Seattle inactives
DB Winston Guy
CB Walter Thurmond
CB DeShawn Shead
LB Leroy Hill
OL Rishaw Johnson
OL John Moffitt
OL Mike Person

    There has to be more to the Moffitt story, because his play does not reflect his inactive status.

  2. chuck_easton says:

    Moffitt is becoming a big disappointment. All of the talent and no work ethic.

    Talent wise he’s better than Sweezy but Eric as hinted on more than one occasion that Moffitt is in the doghouse for being ut of shape. Sounds like both Moffitt and Carp better get the message and come into camp next year in shape or they won’t be long for this team.

    And I don’t consider either of them a draft mistake. The team was drafting based on talent. There is no test for a players commitment to hard work nice they get paid and think they have it made.

  3. Have you seen Moffitt on the Real Rob Report? He looks more like me than like pro athlete. Too bad I bet he could be great if he took things more seriously.

  4. Yes indeed. Looking at Cable’s O line really shows how hard it is to scout NFL talent and predict who will work out. Cable hit it big with Sweezy, maybe missed on Carpenter, and jury is still out on Moffitt. Meanwhile, he developed journeymen Giacomini and McQuistan into solid starters. Who could have predicted how it would shake out, or even who will be starting next year.

  5. Remember PC’s answer when asked which Seahawk he would most want with him in a dark alley? Breno.

    I see Danny Watkins is a healthy scratch for the Eagles this year… Wonder if a change of scenery for both do both good? I really was hoping he fell to us in the 2nd that year

    I’d disagree with Moffitt having more talent, physical at least, than Sweezy. Sweezy is very quick for his size and strong in the upper body. He probably needs to build his base a little. Sweezy is a noob, to use a net term, and just needs time to learn. Moffitt has talent for sure, but I think he was excellent in college due to his intelligence more than anything else. Obviously he stacks up better physically in college as well. I also think this is due to a conditioning issues. PC must feel like Sweezy is better and may be sending a message to Moffitt to come to TC next year in better shape or else.

  8. bbnate420 says:

    Isn’t Watkins like 40 already?

  9. Can’t help but get a laugh out of this. They cut Deon Butler to make room for Winston Guy, Butler’s brought back when another slot opens up. He’s active for the game, Guy isn’t.

  10. Watkins would be an awesome G in our system, I think. But I can’t think of a Seahawk starter I would be willing to trade away.

  11. I could make a living as Deon Butler’s travel agent.
