SEATTLE (AP) -- Running back Pierre Thomas is inactive with a chest injury for the New Orleans Saints in their NFC divisional playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Thomas had been listed as questionable. Defensive end Akiem Hicks was also listed as questionable with an ankle injury but was active.

As expected, Seattle wide receiver Percy Harvin was active and expected to play for just the second time this season. Harvin's only other game was in Week 11 against Minnesota. Reserve defensive back Chris Maragos was also active after being questionable with a back injury.

The one surprise for the Seahawks was the decision to make guard James Carpenter a healthy inactive. Carpenter played in all 16 games in the regular season and started 10.
