Al Woods, L.J. Collier Active For Seattle Seahawks Week 10 Clash vs. Green Bay Packers

The Seahawks are aiming for their first win at Lambeau Field since 1999 and will be as close to their full strength as they have been for weeks with quarterback Russell Wilson and receiver Dee Eskridge back in action after injured reserve missions.

Aside from linebacker Cody Barton, who’s missed workout all week with a quadriceps injury, the rest of Seattle’s Green Bay inactive are healthy scratches. The team called Tanner Muse from the training team to replace him in special teams and to deepen the position behind starters Bobby Wagner and Jordyn Brooks.

Although listed as questionable in the Seahawks’ last injury report for personal reasons, veteran defensive tackle Al Woods will face the Packers and start. Cornerback Bless Austin, on the other hand, has skipped the trip as he brings up his own personal matters after not training this week.

Only dressing for the third time in nine games, Seattle decided to activate the defensive end of the third year, LJ Collier, in favor of Robert Nkemdiche, who is portrayed as a healthy scratch. Collier, a former first-round pick from TCU, has recorded three tackles and two quarterback hits in two games this season and was rumored to be a potential trade candidate before the Nov. 2 deadline.

To complete the rest of the list of inactive Seahawks, rookie Stone Forsythe, center Dakoda Shepley, and backup quarterback Jacob Eason will be in street clothes as healthy scratches.

For the Packers, all-pro left tackle David Bahktiari won’t make his debut in 2021, despite returning to training from the PUP list this week. The team will roll again with Elgton Jenkins as a substitute and Billy Turner will start on the right.

Green Bay received positive injury news ahead of Sunday’s competition, however, as rookie cornerback Eric Stokes and defensive tackle Kenny Clark will play after being classified as questionable on Friday. As reported on Saturday, star quarterback Aaron Rodgers will also return after a 10-day visit on the COVID-19 / reserve list, starting below the middle.
