The Seahawks have ruled out DL Quinton Jefferson (oblique) for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Jefferson played through a questionable tag last week but stayed on the field for less than one-third of the defensive snaps. DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) is questionable. He missed last week before putting in limited practices all this week. S Quandre Diggs (hamstring), S Bradley McDougald (back) and CB Tre Flowers (neck) are also questionable. Diggs just arrived via trade and faces an uncertain role. McDougald missed last week's game and Wednesday's practice but returned for limited workouts the past 2 days. Flowers took part in limited practices all week.
Seahawks CB Tre Flowers is active for today's game against the Saints. He entered the day questionable with an ankle issue that popped up during the week, limiting his Thursday practice and sidelining him Friday. Flowers carries risk but is available as a low-level IDP. Rookie DE L.J. Collier is a bit of a surprise inactive. He wouldn't be an IDP target even if he were playing, but the 1st-round pick returned from his preseason ankle sprain to play limited snaps last week and then didn't appear on the injury report this week. Collier's likely still working back to full strength overall, while Seattle needed the spot on the active roster. Notably, DE Ezekiel Ansah will make his Seahawks debut after missing the 1st 2 games. He put in full practices all week and finished off the injury report.
