Hawks inactives: Gallery in, Polumbus out

It looks like Robert Gallery will get his first start in a regular season game as a Seattle Seahawk.

Gallery practiced all week, but was listed as questionable heading into today's game. However, Gallery was not on the inactive list this morning, which means he will play and start at left guard.

One surprise on the list is offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus. He had been considered the swing tackle heading into the training camp, but appears to have been passed up by Breno Giacomini.

FB Eddie Williams is active after being signed earlier this week, as is cornerback Kennard Cox, who rejoined the team on Saturday.

Predictably, Sidney Rice is not active today after doing limited work in practice this week.

For Pittsburgh, Bryant McFadden (hamstring) will not play, which means William Gay will start at cornerback, a likely target for Seattle. Also, left guard Chris Kemoeatu will not play, and Ramon Foster will start in his place.

Here's the full list.
