Okung, Polumbus, Mebane among inactives
By Mike Sando
SEATTLE -- The Seattle Seahawks' list of inactive players leaves them severely shorthanded on both lines.
Left tackles Russell Okung and Tyler Polumbus are inactive. Seattle's seven active offensive linemen: Chester Pitts, Mike Gibson, Chris Spencer, Stacy Andrews, Sean Locklear, Breno Giacomini and Allen Barbre.
On defense, starting tackles Brandon Mebane and Colin Cole are inactive. Mebane's status following a calf injury had been in question. Not having him against the New York Giants further diminishes a group already without defensive end Red Bryant, who landed on injured reserve during the week.
Seattle's inactive list: quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, fullback Michael Robinson, defensive tackle Frank Okam, Okung, Polumbus, receiver Golden Tate, Cole and Mebane.
Robinson had been the emergency quarterback behind Whitehurst and Zac Robinson, who was signed from the practice squad for this game.
I'm not sure what the Seahawks would do at quarterback if injuries felled Whitehurst and Robinson. Running back Leon Washington did complete a pass while with the New York Jets in 2007. I heard it was a beauty.
