Jags bench leading WR Sims-Walker for unspecified rules violation

SEATTLE -- Mike Sims-Walker, the Jacksonville Jaguars' leading wide receiver, was inactive for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks because of a violation of team rules, one week after he caught a career-high two touchdown passes.

A Jaguars spokesman said Sunday that Sims-Walker made the team's first trip to Seattle since 2001, but wouldn't play because he broke an unspecified team rule. That left Jacksonville with Torry Holt and three rookie wide receivers -- Jarrett Dillard, Mike Thomas and Tiquan Underwood.

Jaguars starting linebacker Justin Durant was inactive with a groin injury.

The Seahawks were without defensive end Patrick Kerney (groin), fullback Justin Griffith (knee), linebacker Leroy Hill and starting offensive linemen Rob Sims (ankle), Walter Jones (knee) and Sean Locklear (ankle).
