The Seattle Seahawks will be without defensive tackle Bryan Mone for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.
Mone appeared on the injury report this week due to an elbow that kept him from being a full participant in practice. Head coach Pete Carroll said on Friday that Mone was pushing hard to play. However, when the Seahawks elevated defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche from the practice squad on Saturday, it appeared a likely indication that Mone would either be inactive or at least limited.
Mone had an outstanding game last week against the Indianapolis Colts with five tackles and a quarterback hit.
Wide receiver Dee Eskridge (concussion) and running back Rashaad Penny (calf) are also out for Seattle due to injuries. Eskridge was officially declared out on Saturday while Penny was doubtful and not expected to be able to go.
Left guard Damien Lewis (groin) and cornerback D.J. Reid (calf) were questionable against the Titans but both are active and will play.
Healthy scratches for Seattle are third-string quarterback Jake Luton, cornerback John Reid and rookie tackle Stone Forsythe. Reid was active last week against Indianapolis, but Bless Austin will be in uniform this week instead. Defensive end L.J. Collier is also active after being a healthy scratch last week. He can also help with the lack of depth at tackle with Mone's absence.
The Titans had a surprise inactive show up on Sunday. Starting left tackle Taylor Lewan was ruled inactive by Tennessee after sustaining an apparent knee injury in pregame warmups. Via Ben Arthur of the Tennesseean, Lewan limped back to the locker room pregame before being ruled out. Lewan tore his ACL last October.
Ty Sambrailo is listed on the depth chart as the Titans backup left tackle. Kendall Lamb is also a possibility to fill the roll with Lewan out. Another option would be to move right tackle David Quessenberry to the left side with Lamb or Sambrailo taking the role at right tackle instead.
Also out for the Titans with injuries are cornerback Caleb Farley (shoulder), tight end Anthony Firkser (knee) and linebacker Jayon Brown (hamstring). Wide receiver Cameron Batson and linebacker Derick Roberson are healthy scratches.
