Jackson, Lynch in for ‘Hawks; Gresham out for Bengals

The inactives lists for the Seahawks and Bengals are out, and there are a few surprises:

Bengals: CB Morgan Trent, S Robert Sands, LB Dontay Moch, LB Rey Maualuga, OG Clint Boling, TE Jermaine Gresham, WR Ryan Whalen.

Seahawks: QB Josh Portis, WR Mike WIlliams, SS Jeron Johnson, CB Kennard Cox, CB Ron Parker, OT Jarriel King, DT Al Woods.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll seemed to indicated that Charlie Whitehurst would start today, but Tavaris Jackson has been named the starter.  Marshawn Lynch, who also missed last week’s 6-3 loss to Cleveland, is back in the line-up for Seattle.

For the Bengals, the big surprise is Gresham, who is out with a hamstring issue that surfaced on Friday.  Donald Lee gets the start in his place.  Dan Skuta gets the call at Mike backer in place of Rey Maualuga.
