Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (hip) is active for Sunday's Week 6 game against the Cowboys.

IDP owners can go ahead and fire up Chancellor as he should be fine for normal snaps. Meanwhile, C Max Unger (foot) is out, as is TE Zach Miller (ankle). The rest of the Seahawks inactives: WR Paul Richardson, Tharold Simon, RB Christine Michael, Andrew McDonald and Kevin Norwood.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (hip) is a "true game-time decision" for Week 6 against Dallas.

Per Werder, Richard Sherman thinks Chancellor will play, but team doctors won't make a decision on his playing status until about an hour and a half before kickoff. The Cowboys and Seahawks don't face off until 4:25PM ET, so it's a frustrating situation for IDP owners. Jeron Johnson is Chancellor's backup.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor is questionable for Week 6 with a hip injury.

He has not practiced this week. Coach Pete Carroll said Chancellor would be a game-time decision. Jeron Johnson will likely start if Chancellor is unable to play.

Coach Pete Carroll said SS Kam Chancellor is battling severe ankle pain, and considered surgery following the Week 2 loss to the Chargers.

According to Carroll, Chancellor's ankle "was on fire." It must not have been much of an issue Sunday against the Broncos. He played all 75 defensive snaps, and received an elite +4.7 grade from PFF, his second-highest single-game rating of his five-year career. Carroll said the Seahawks will "manage" Chancellor.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (hip) has resumed practicing, but is unlikely to suit up for Saturday's preseason game.

"He practiced really well this week," coach Pete Carroll said Thursday. "He felt great about it. We’ll go through next week and then figure it out at the end." The Seahawks could end up holding their second-team All Pro out for the entire exhibition season, but it's not a concern for his Week 1 status. Barring a setback, Chancellor should be ready to rock for the Legion of Boom.

Coach Pete Carroll said SS Kam Chancellor (hip) is "on the verge" of returning.

Chancellor underwent hip surgery in April. He's been sidelined during the early part of camp, but it's not a major concern. Barring a setback, Chancellor should be cleared to practice next week.

Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said SS Kam Chancellor (hip surgery) is "way ahead of schedule," and will be ready for training camp.

"He’ll be back for camp, and we have no hesitation in saying that," Carroll said strongly. The exact time and nature of Chancellor's operation were never revealed, but his status is no longer a question mark for Week 1.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor is recovering from hip surgery, and "hopes" to be ready for the preseason.

ESPN's John Clayton reported in March that Chancellor was expected to go under the knife. Per the team, the operation happened "a month ago." According to's Ian Rapoport, "nothing is certain" regarding Chancellor's timeline. A second-team All Pro last season, Chancellor has missed only one game in four years. It's possible he could sit out the entire exhibition season before being ready for Week 1.

ESPN's John Clayton reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor is slated to undergo "minor" hip surgery.

Per Clayton, a date has yet to be set, suggesting the operation is truly minor. The play-making safety dealt with hip issues down the stretch last season, but never missed a game. Chancellor was one of the stars of Seattle's Super Bowl win. The hip is one of the trickier areas of the body for a football player, but it doesn't appear that Chancellor's 2014 availability is in any way in question.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (hip) is listed as probable for the Divisional Round.

Chancellor was held out of practice Wednesday with his hip issue, but practiced fully on both Thursday and Friday. The probable tag confirms he'll be all systems go for Saturday's game against the Saints.

Seahawks signed SS Kam Chancellor to a four-year, $28 million extension through 2017, including $17 million guaranteed.

Chancellor just turned 25 and will be 30 when the deal expires, so he'll have a real opportunity to see it through. An imposing 6-foot-3, 232-pound bonecrusher in Seattle's backend, Chancellor amassed 101 tackles and a forced fumble last season while breaking up four passes as a "box" safety. Earl Thomas plays back deep. Chancellor graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 21 safety in 2012, ahead of Thomas (No. 35), receiving high marks in both coverage and run support. Chancellor was charted with just nine missed tackles, which is a strong statistic because he gets so many tackle chances playing close to the line of scrimmage.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor's 2013 base salary increased from $575,000 to $1.323 million after he hit escalators in his rookie deal.

Chancellor has appeared in 47 of a possible 48 games to start his career, and he's known as a hard-hitting safety that isn't afraid to lay a receiver out. 2011 was his best season, as he posted 97 tackles, 13 passes defensed, four interceptions, and two forced fumbles. Chancellor recently underwent surgery on his lower right leg, but he should be ready for training camp. Seattle could look to try and lock him up this offseason.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor underwent surgery Thursday on his lower right leg.

The specifics aren't in yet. Chancellor tweeted a picture of his foot in a cast, adding, "Surgery is finally over and I feel like crap." It's not clear if the injury occurred in the season-ending loss to Atlanta, or if Chancellor had been playing through pain. He led the Seahawks defense in snaps played this season.
