There were no surprises among the Minnesota Vikings' 10 scratches for Saturday's preseason game at Seattle.

Receiver Percy Harvin (ribs), linebacker Kenny Onatolu (foot), linebacker Heath Farwell (hamstring), tight end Visanthe Shiancoe (hamstring), guard Anthony Herrera (knee/triceps) and receiver Greg Camarillo (groin) were ruled out on Thursday.

Cornerback Asher Allen (toe), defensive back Simeon Castille (hamstring), fullback Matt Asiata (hip flexor) and end D'Aundre Reed (calf) also have missed practice time because of injuries.

Linebacker Erin Henderson, who sat out Thursday's practice to rest a sore knee, was active and expected to be in the starting lineup. So was cornerback Cedric Griffin, who sat out last week's preseason opener at Tennessee and was set to play for the first time since his latest major knee injury in October.

The Seahawks deactivated 13 players: receiver Deon Butler, cornerback Kelly Jennings, cornerback Walter Thurmond, cornerback Roy Lewis, end A.J. Schable, defensive tackle Jay Alford, left tackle Russell Okung, receiver Ben Obamonu, tight end Cameron Morrah, tight end John Carlson, defensive tackle Colin Cole, end Chris Clemons and end Pierre Allen.
