The Seahawks of course are also without Earl Thomas, their star safety. He is out for the season on injured reserve.
Both teams should have their full compliment of skill players however. Both quarterbacks are healthy. John Brown will play for the Cardinals. Also playing on Saturday is cornerback Brandon Williams.
The key mission this week will be not to lose any other players to season-ending type injuries. The Cardinals have had their fill of injuries this season, just one of many reasons for their downfall from expectations.
