Pete Carroll just jumped into a conversation between Matt Hasselbeck and Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Hasselbeck's final season in Seattle — 2010 — was Carroll's first. Hasselbeck, the Seahawks' career passing leader, is back at CenturyLink Field as part of ESPN's Monday Night Football crew. He told 710 ESPN Seattle today that it's emotional being back.

For the Falcons, WR Julio Jones is active, as expected. RB Devonta Freeman is inactive (ruled out earlier).

Jarran Reed's absence in this game shouldn't be overlooked. The second-year defensive tackle has been having a strong season, mainly as an early-down run stuffer but he has also provided some pass-rush. The Seahawks' run defense turned in a masterful performance last week vs. Arizona even though Reed only played two snaps before hurting his hamstring. However, Seattle loaded the box with eight or more defenders often in that game, which isn't as viable of a strategy with a depleted secondary facing Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.

For the Seahawks, WR Doug Baldwin, RB Eddie Lacy and TE Jimmy Graham are all active.

Linebacker Anthony Hitchens received positive news from an MRI on a groin injury that knocked him out in the second half of Sunday's loss to Philadelphia. He said he will practice this week with the idea he will play Thursday against the Chargers.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is inactive tonight (healthy scratch).

It's not clear who will start at running back, but the Seahawks declaring Thomas Rawls inactive (as a healthy scratch) is a good sign that Mike Davis will get some meaningful work tonight. Davis was promoted from the practice squad last week. Eddie Lacy is back after missing last week's game. He was getting a shot to take over as Seattle's lead back when he went down in Week 9. J.D. McKissic is Seattle's third-down back.

The Seahawks' inactives vs. Atlanta: SS Kam Chancellor, RB Thomas Rawls, LB Michael Wilhoite, LG Luke Joeckel, DT Jarran Reed, DT Garrison Smith, DE Quinton Jefferson.

Falcons certainly will try to get Julio Jones more touches tonight with Seahawks CB Richard Sherman out for the season with an Achilles tear. Jones has just one touchdown on 76 targets.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Earl Thomas is expected to play tonight after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury. With Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor out, Thomas may be busier than usual in patrolling the back end of Seattle's defense vs. Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Co.
