Hawks inactives: Pitts will play, Jennings and Thurmond are out

No real surprises in Seattle's inactive list, just announced in the press box.

As expected, cornerback Kelly Jennings (hamstring) and Walter Thurmond (head) will not play today, so Roy Lewis will get his first career start at corner.

OL Russell Okung (ankle) did not practice all week and will not play today. Tyler Polumbus will start in his place.

Ol Chester Pitts, as Pete Carroll alluded to on Friday, will be active for the first time this season. With Jennings and Thurmond out, Nate Ness will come in and play corner on the outside and Lewis will play on the slot when Seattle goes with six defensive backs.

Receiver Brandon Stokley (oblique), was a limited participant in practice and will play today. Fullback Michael Robinson (hamstring) is not active today, and Oakland native Quinton Ganther will start.

Here's the full list. We still have not received Oakland's inactive list, but I'll update the post when we get it.
