NFL Playoffs, Bears Vs. Seahawks: Lofa Tatupu Active For Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks got some good news on defense this morning when Lofa Tatupu was announced as active ahead of this morning’s NFL playoff game against the Chicago Bears. Tatupu suffered a concussion last weekend against the New Orleans Saints and has been unable to practice with contact all week. He did, however, hit the field on Friday for a light workout and participated in the Seahawks customary walkthrough on Saturday morning in Chicago.

As he always does, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll played Tatupu’s status close to the vest, acting coy and never giving a definitive answer about whether or not he would play on Sunday. Though Carroll expressed optimism Tatupu would be able to pass the mandatory concussion tests, the word on Saturday was that he had not yet been cleared today. That changed on Sunday morning as the Seahawks announced he was good to go and would assume his normal role in the middle of the Seahawks defense.

The Bears and Seahawks kick it off at 10 a.m. on Fox at Soldier Field in Chicago. Follow all the action throughout the game in our StoryStream.
