The Seattle Seahawks were without two of their top three running backs for Sunday's NFC West Division matchup against San Francisco, with both Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise on the inactive list.

Rawls suffered a shin injury in the first half of last week's game against Los Angeles, leaving Christine Michael to take the bulk of the carries. Prosise was inactive for the second straight week after cracking a bone in his hand in the opener against Miami.

Michael was to start for Seattle with rookie Alex Collins and newly signed Terrence McGee his backups.

New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was active for his team's game at Kansas City. Marshall was a game-time decision because of a slight knee sprain but looked good warming up before kickoff.

Running back Jamaal Charles was inactive for the third straight week as the Chiefs take a cautious approach in his return from ACL surgery. Spencer Ware was to start in his place.

Kansas City also was to have backups starting at offensive guard in Jordan Devey and Zach Fulton. Parker Ehinger remains out with a concussion and Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff has been dealing with an ankle injury, though he was available in an emergency.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who had his surgically repaired left foot stepped on by a teammate in a walk-through early in the week, was inactive for the Buffalo Bills' game against the Arizona Cardinals.

The absence of Watkins meant Anthony Lynn made his NFL debut as offensive coordinator without his top receiving threat. Lynn replaced Greg Roman, who was fired Sept. 16.

The Tennessee Titans scratched tight end Delanie Walker for their game against Oakland. Walker, the Titans' leading receiver last season, hurt his right hamstring in Tennessee's comeback victory at Detroit.

The Green Bay Packers missed four defensive starters against the Detroit Lions, as well as key reserve Datone Jones. Packers first-round draft pick Kenny Clark made his first career start at nose tackle, replacing Letroy Guion, who has a knee injury. The Lions were missing lineman Ezekiel Ansah and linebacker DeAndre Levy.
