The offensive line will already have an injured Russell Okung playing left tackle, even with a torn labrum keeping him at less than 100%. The offensive line won’t have the help of TE Zach Miller either. Miller continues to rehab from ankle surgery that occurred during the team’s bye week.
Defensive back DeShawn Shead remains in the mix at corner. “He’s had a lot of work there. We’re confident he can play.”
Seattle’s secondary may be getting some reinforcements as CB Byron Maxwell‘s strained calf injury has been healing much faster than expected. He’ll be listed as day-to-day and may have a chance to play on Sunday. Tharold Simon, the Seahawks’ 5th round selection in this past draft has been recovering from knee surgery and is practicing today for the first time since preseason. A decision on his status won’t be made until the weekend.
Finally, safety Kam Chancellor, who has been beat up all season long is expected to play against the Rams. Chancellor first had ankle issues and most recently has fought a hip injury that he sustained against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.
