SEATTLE -- The Seahawks will be without three-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu when they face the Eagles at Qwest Field.

Seattle listed Tatupu among its inactive players. Tatupu suffered a groin injury against the 49ers in Week 8. Seattle was already without Pro Bowl defensive end Patrick Kerney, who has headed to Alabama for a shoulder consultation with Dr. James Andrews.

D.D. Lewis starts for Tatupu. Darryl Tapp starts for Kerney. Fullback Leonard Weaver is active for the Seahawks despite a foot injury.

Inactive for Seattle: kicker Brandon Coutu, quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, offensive lineman Mansfield Wrotto, receiver Deion Branch, tight end Will Heller and defensive tackle Howard Green. Tatupu, Kerney, Branch and Hasselbeck were starters.
