The Seattle Seahawks will be without running back Thomas Rawls on Sunday. He’ll miss the game against Green Bay Packers on FOX.

Rawls was one of seven players for the Seahawks, who were inactive for the game. He is recovering from a high ankle sprain that he injured on Aug. 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

He attempted to give it a go prior to the game. However, he was not able to convince the team that he was ready to be active for the game.

Eddie Lacy, who signed with the team after spending the first-part of his career with the Packers, will get the start in his first game back to Lambeau Field. Chris Carson is also expected to receive playing time.

“It was just a high ankle sprain that just lingered,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said on Friday. “And they take time and also we don’t want to bring him back too soon and we don’t want to make this linger like they can — high ankles are famous for that.

“So we are just trying to get rid of it, so once we cut him loose, he’s really raring to go. So, we have to make that determination.”

Besides Rawls, the other players, who are inactive for the game are running back J.D. McKissic, offensive lineman Isaiah Battle and Jordan Roos, linebacker Michael Wilhoite and safeties Tedric Thompson and Delano Hill.
