GREEN BAY, Wisc. -- The Seattle Seahawks got great news as the inactives list came on on Sunday. Both Duane Brown (knee) and George Fant (groin) are active against the Packers in the Divisional Round. That's huge against Green Bay's pass rush led by Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith.
Brown is back at left tackle after missing three games. He had minor knee surgery on Dec. 23, the day following Seattle's loss to the Cardinals in Week 16. Brown's return comes less than three full weeks after the operation. Fant, who played well at left tackle the last two games, will go back to his role as a sixth lineman on tackle-eligible plays.
The notable inactives are Marquise Blair, Ziggy Ansah and Mike Iupati. Blair hurt his ankle in practice on Thursday, Ansah suffered a shoulder stinger in the Wild Card Round and Iupati continues to sit out with a neck injury. Jamarco Jones will remain as the starter at left guard.
