The Seattle Seahawks look to get back on track against their NFC West rival, the St. Louis Rams today. They’ll have to do that with six players out due to injuries.
Four starters are among the battered and broken as C Max Unger, TE Zach Miller, MLB Bobby Wagner and CB Byron Maxwell will all be suited down. DE Cassius Marsh and DT Jordan Hill will join them.

Second year center Stephen Schilling will start for Max Unger again. The Bellevue High School graduate played well against the Cowboys and will have another tough matchup against the Rams defensive line.
K.J. Wright will fill in at MLB for Bobby Wagner who’s suffering from turf toe.
Last season the Seahawks won both games they played against the Rams. In Seattle they won easily, 27-9, while the game in St. Louis was one of the toughest matchups they played all season.
The Hawks walked away winners, 14-9, but were held to one of their worst offensive performances all season.
Marshawn Lynch led the team with 29 rushing yards and Russell Wilson threw for just 139 yards and 2 TD’s, both to Golden Tate.
