KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Two ailing Seattle Seahawks will miss the Sunday night game at Denver.

Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren says center Robbie Tobeck has not been cleared to play. He's been getting antibiotics for an abscess on his hip. Chris Spencer will start at center.

Receiver Bobby Engram will miss his eighth straight game because of a thyroid condition that saps his strength. He was Seattle's leading receiver last year.

And, the Seahawks placed fullback Josh Parry on the injured reserve list with a sore foot and signed tight end Benny Joppru. He's played in one game over four NFL seasons.
