SEATTLE -- Wide receiver Deion Branch was inactive for the Seattle Seahawksin their Sunday season opener against the St. Louis Rams.
Branch missed practice all week with a hamstring injury, and first-year Seahawks coach Jim Mora said Friday that the receiver's status would be a game-time decision. Since joining Seattle at the start of the 2007 season, Branch has been inactive in 15 of 51 games.
Branch again had knee surgery this offseason, causing him to miss most of the team's offseason activities.
