Packers-Seahawks Inactives: No surprises as Martinez & Breeland will play on TNF

The Packers got good news on their two questionable players, while the Seahawks will miss an important starter tonight.

Two key starters for the Green Bay Packers were listed on the team’s final week 11 injury report as questionable, but the team will thankfully have the services of both critical players in tonight’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Blake Martinez and Bashaud Breeland were both still technically game-time decisions after receiving that status this week. However, the two will both play and start for the Packers tonight. Breeland suffered a groin injury against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and missed a few snaps towards the end of the game, but his availability will be critical for the secondary. It is particularly essential given Kevin King’s injury and Tramon Williams’ apparently permanent move to safety, as Breeland will start along with rookies Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson in the Packers’ nickel alignments.

Martinez has missed only a few snaps this year, sitting out a few series against the Patriots after twisting his ankle. However, he was in for every play on Sunday and was expected to go again today.

The Seahawks, meanwhile, will be without one key starter on defense: linebacker K.J. Wright, who was listed as doubtful on the injury report. Wright is a key complement to middle linebacker Bobby Wagner. Austin Calitro is listed as Wright’s backup on the Seahawks’ depth chart.

Here are the full inactive lists for both teams for tonight’s game.
