Seahawks have Britt, Freeney up for game against Texans

October 29, 2017

The Seattle Seahawks will have starting center Justin Britt for their game against the Houston Texans despite an ankle injury that limited him in practice this week.

Britt and newly signed defensive end Dwight Freeney were both active for the Seahawks. Britt's availability means rookie Ethan Pocic will start at left guard.

Cornerback Jeremy Lane, who was listed as questionable, was also active for Seattle.

The Texans had already ruled out starting left tackle Chris Clark with a calf injury and starting defensive end Joel Heath due to a knee injury. Backup defensive end Kendall Langford, questionable with a back injury, was also inactive.
