SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks will be without starting left guard Mike Iupati and backup running back Carlos Hyde for Sunday night’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings after both were listed as inactive.

Iupati was a bit of a surprise after Seattle coach Pete Carroll indicated on Friday he expected Iupati to be able to play. Iupati has been dealing with knee and back issues. Jordan Simmons will likely step in for Iupati.

Hyde has been nursing a sore shoulder and was inactive for the second straight game. Seattle will have cornerback Quinton Dunbar available after he missed the past two games with a knee injury.

Minnesota was down one starter as cornerback Holton Hill was inactive. He had been listed as questionable with a foot injury.


Vikings: WR K.J. Osborn, CB Holton Hill, CB Kris Boyd, DT Hercules Mata’afa, T Olisaemeka Udoh.

Seahawks: RB Carlos Hyde, SS Jamal Adams, SS Lano Hill, LB Jordyn Brooks, G/C Kyle Fuller, G Mike Iupati.
