The Dolphins are going to be without three offensive players projected to be in big roles this season as they open their season in Seattle.

Wide receiver DeVante Parker is inactive as a result of the hamstring injury that cost him practice time and led him to be listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report. Parker is joined by center Mike Pouncey, who was ruled out during the week because of a hip injury. There may be more hope for Parker’s return in Week Two than there is for Pouncey based on reports from Miami.

Running back Jay Ajayi was also ruled out and didn’t travel because of a coach’s decision. What that might mean for his future remains to be seen. Arian Foster starts in the backfield Sunday.

The Seahawks said Friday that tight end Jimmy Graham would be playing, but they won’t have rookie Germain Ifedi. He was listed as questionable because of an ankle injury and will be replaced at right guard by J’Marcus Webb.

Cornerback Tharold Simon, running back Alex Collins, safety Dewey McDonald, guard Rees Odhiambo, tight end Nick Vannett and defensive tackle Garrison Smith are also inactive for the Seahawks. Quarterback Brandon Doughty, running back Isaiah Pead, guard Dallas Thomas and defensive end Terrence Fede round out the inactives for Miami.

    Say what you want about Byron Maxwell but that dude punches the ball out better than anyone I’ve ever seen and he’s always done it. He did it in the superbowl. Just did it again to stop the Hawks drive.
