Wide receiver Phillip Dorsett and defensive end Rasheem Green are both out for Sunday night's game against the New England Patriots after being declared inactive to injuries.

Backup tackle Cedric Ogbuehi is also inactive due to his pectoral injury.

Green sustained a stinger last week against the Atlanta Falcons and was unable to practice this week. He and Ogbuehi had both been declared doubtful to play against the Patriots.

Meanwhile, Dorsett will not make his Seattle debut with his former team in the building tonight. The former Patriots wide receiver has missed the first two games of the season due to an ongoing foot issue that he's been dealing with since at least the preseason.

Running back DeeJay Dallas and defensive end Alton Robinson, both rookies, are among the three healthy scratches for Seattle. Robinson's at least a mild surprise due to Green's absence at the end position. Recent addition D'Andre Walker is also inactive for a second straight game. He was claimed off waivers from the Tennessee Titans following final roster cuts two weeks ago.

Seattle called up defensive tackle Anthony Rush from the practice squad on Saturday and he will make his debut with the team. He spent last year with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Patriots are missing a key running back due to tragic circumstances.

James White was a surprise addition to New England's inactive list and there's now a reason why he will not be playing. According to Andy Slater Fox Sports 640 in Miami, White's parents were involved in a serious car accident today. His father, Tyrone, a Miami-Dade police officer was killed in the accident with his mother in critical condition.

All of New England's questionable players will play against Seattle. Wide receivers Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry, linebacker Brandon Copeland and defensive lineman Adam Butler all were questionable due to injuries on Friday.

Linebacker Josh Uche is the only injury absence for New England as he is out with an ankle injury.
