First up, running back Rashaad Penny has been activated from the injured reserve list. He’s been out since Week 1 when he suffered a calf injury. With starting RB Chris Carson still on IR with a neck problem, Penny will be making the first start of his career against the Saints.

QB Jake Luton: Elevated from practice squad

The team has also elevated third-string quarterback Jake Luton from the practice squad for the second-straight week. The recently-signed Jacob Eason is also on the roster, but Pete Carroll says he’s not ready to take over behind Geno Smith just yet. Expect Eason to be on the inactives list.

OT Cedric Ogbuehi: Waived

The Seahawks have also waived offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi. He played only one game this year at right tackle while starter Brandon Shell was out, and had a rough time against the 49ers. Ogbuehi was a first-round pick by Cincinnati in 2015 but has only started 30 games since.
