Mike Iupati out for Seahawks against Vikings; Quinton Dunbar active

New England Patriots v Seattle Seahawks

Cornerback Quinton Dunbar is the only one of five players listed as questionable for tonight's game that will actually against the Minnesota Vikings.

Dunbar is making his return to the lineup after missing the last two games due to a knee injury. It's unclear whether Dunbar will start or split time with Tre Flowers as he returns from the two weeks out.

However, left guard Mike Iupati, linebacker Jordyn Brooks, running back Carlos Hyde and safety Lano Hill are all inactive for the game against the Vikings.

Iupati had a back injury surface on the injury report this week in addition to a knee injury that had already kept him limited in practice on Wednesday. Despite being able to be limited in Friday's workout, Iupati was declared inactive by the team ahead of Sunday night's game.

The Seahawks have rotated their guard positions through the first four weeks of the season with Jordan Simmons and Jamarco Jones each getting chances to play despite Iupati and Damien Lewis being the starters. Either Simmons or Jones will get the start in place of Iupati against Minnesota.

Brooks is missing his second straight game due to a knee injury sustained against Dallas. Hyde is also out for a second straight week due to a shoulder injury that had limited him to working out in a no-contact jersey the last two weeks.

Hill's issue seems potentially more significant based on head coach Pete Carroll's comments on Friday.

Damarious Randall was promoted from the practice squad for a second straight week on Saturday and will serve as the backup to Ryan Neal at safety.

Backup guard/center Kyle Fuller is the only healthy scratch for Seattle.

The Vikings are without starting cornerback Holton Hill (foot), backup Kris Boyd (hamstring) and wide receiver K.J. Osborn (hamstring).

Osborn was ruled out with his hamstring injury on Friday. Hill and Boyd had both been listed as questionable but neither is playing against Seattle.
