Seahawks WR Williams ruled out vs. Giants with concussion

The Seattle Seahawks can ill-afford to lose any playmakers on an already struggling offense. But wide receiver Mike Williams isn't recovered from a recent concussion and won't play in Sunday's game against the New York Giants.

Williams was injured during last week's 30-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons and was officially ruled out by the team Friday after failing to pass a physical. Williams was down on the turf for a couple minutes after making a block on Marshawn Lynch's 11-yard touchdown run during the third quarter.

Ben Obomanu is expected to start Sunday for Williams, and Golden Tate likely will see an increased work load.

Cornerback Marcus Trufant is expected to play after having lower back spasms in practice this week. Trufant didn't practice Friday and officially is questionable. Walter Thurmond will start if Trufant can't play.

Safety Kam Chancellor is expected to start after missing last week's game with a deep thigh bruise. He was limited in practice the last two days.
