The Seahawks said Flynn was resting a sore elbow and was not expected to play.
Russell Wilson received the starting nod for the team's matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has not named a Week 1 starter, but Wilson appears to be the new favorite to start in Seattle, according to Around the League's Gregg Rosenthal.
Flynn has gone 17-of-26 passing for 102 yards in his two preseason appearances for the Seahawks. Wilson has completed 22 of 33 passes for 279 yards.
The Seahawks reportedly also are ramping up efforts to trade veteran quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who had been competing for the starting signal-caller role as well.
