Seahawks’ Jadeveon Clowney is officially inactive vs. Eagles
While the Philadelphia Eagles field a team devoid of much of their star talent, the Seattle Seahawks will be without their best pass-rusher for the Week 12 tilt. The team announced that defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is officially inactive against the Eagles.

Tight end Luke Willson, wide receiver Jaron Brown, wide receiver John Ursua, running back C.J. Prosise, guard Phil Haynes and cornerback Neiko Thorpe will join Clowney on the sideline.
Clowney went away from the team’s practice on Friday to get treatment for a sore hip. The injury seems to be from Seattle’s Week 10 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday.
Last time we saw Clowney on the field, he was proving to be a monstrous force for Seattle. In Week 10, he won NFC Defensive Player of the Week, as he tallied five tackles, five quarterback hits, a sack, a fumble recovery and a touchdown.
With Clowney out, the Seahawks won’t be able to exploit the lack of right tackle Lane Johnson for Philadelphia. They will rely on Quinton Jefferson and Rasheem Green to get to Carson Wentz. Ezekiel Ansah, Shaqeem Griffin and rookie L.J. Collier are candidates to see an uptick in snaps throughout the Week 12 contest.
The Seahawks acquired Clowney in a trade with the Houston Texans on Aug. 31. In exchange for the three-time Pro Bowler, they sent a 2020 third-round selection and outside linebackers Jacob Martin and Barkevious Mingo. In 10 games with the Seahawks, Clowney has 25 combined tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles and 12 quarterback hits.
