SEATTLE -- Mistral Raymond isn't ready to return to the field just yet.

The second-year safety was among the Minnesota Vikings' seven inactives on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks -- the sixth consecutive game Raymond has missed since dislocating his right ankle on Sept. 23 against San Francisco.

Raymond was limited in practice throughout the week and coach Leslie Frazier expressed concern about his conditioning after missing so much time. The Vikings listed him as questionable on the injury report.

Also inactive for the Vikings were: quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, receivers Stephen Burton and Jarius Wright, linebacker Audie Cole, offensive lineman Mark Asper and tight end John Carlson, who was ruled out on Friday because of a concussion.

Burton was the only mild surprise among the healthy scratches. He had been inactive for seven of eight games, including the past four, but the Vikings decided to go with only four receivers.

Wright, the rookie fourth-round draft pick from Arkansas, still hasn't dressed for a game. Tight end Allen Reisner, whom the Vikings re-signed off the practice squad on Saturday, was active instead.

The Seahawks' inactives were: receiver Braylon Edwards, safety Winston Guy, cornerback Byron Maxwell, tackle Mike Person, guard James Carpenter, end Jason Jones and defensive tackle Jaye Howard.

Edwards (knee), Maxwell (hamstring) and Jones (ankle) were on the injury report.
