Michael Vick and Jeremy Maclin have both been ruled out of Thursday's game in Seattle, meaning Vince Young will get his third consecutive start at quarterback.

Riley Cooper will likely start for Maclin.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (knee) is making the trip and will be a game time decision. He played Sunday but only in a limited role, coming in to play dime. He hyper-extended his knee Thanksgiving Day.

Vick (ribs) has not practiced in three weeks and Maclin (hamstring) has only been through part of one practice in that time. Both were widely expected to miss this game because of their injuries.
