The matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns is sure to be an underwhelming one today when the teams meet at 1 p.m. ET in Cleveland.
Both teams will be without arguably their best players. Seattle will start Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback because of a pectoral injury to their upstart starter Tarvaris Jackson. On the other side of the field, Cleveland's lone star, Peyton Hillis, will miss the game with a nagging hamstring injury.
Other major inactives from around the league include St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, who will miss his first career start since entering the league as a starter last year, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tailback LaGarrette Blount, Detroit Lions tailback Jahvid Best and Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones.
These injuries could all have major consequences for the teams involved.
