No Browner, Clemons for Seahawks; Dobbs active for 49ers

No surprises for the 49ers as far as who's in uniform for the showdown in Seattle. LaMichael James, who still is dealing with a knee sprain, will be inactive for the second straight week. In fact, it's hard to envision James being in uniform even if he is fully healthy. He was inactive for every game last season before Kendall Hunter suffered an Achilles' tear.

Meanwhile, defensive lineman Demarcus Dobbs is active after serving a one-game suspension last week. Will Tukuafu was waived/injured to make room for Dobbs on the roster. Tony Jerod-Eddie, who was active last week against the Packers, is inactive today.

For the Seahawks, Walter Thurmond will start at cornerback in place of Brandon Browner, who is dealing with a hamstring strain. Thurmond started for Browner in last week's win over the Panthers. Browner was not on hand for Seattle's 42-13 win over the 49ers in December. Michael Bennett will start at defensive end for Chris Clemons. Cliff Avril is expected to play
