Kellen Davis a surprise inactive

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Seattle Seahawks had a big surprise on the inactive list when tight end Kellen Davis was announced as one of the seven players who will not suit up for the Super Bowl.

That leaves Seattle with only two tight ends for the game -- starter Zach Miller and rookie Luke Willson. Davis (6-foot-7, 265 pounds) has been used quite a bit as an extra blocker, especially in goal-line situations.

There was no report this week of Davis being injured or missing practice.

The other six inactives were not a surprise: receiver Bryan Walters, rookie running back Christine Michael, offensive tackles Michael Bowie and Caylin Hauptmann, defensive tackle Jordan Hill and defensive end Benson Mayowa.
