In just a few short days the St. Louis Rams will play their second division game at home in as many weeks, only this time they will be going up against the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Both teams are dealing with their fair share of injuries, so lets get right to this week’s injury report.
St. Louis Rams
C Tim Barnes – Shoulder – DNP – Doubtful
CB Brandon McGee – Foot – Limited – Questionable
CB Trumaine Johnson – Knee – Limited – Questionable
DE Ethan Westbrooks – Hand – Limited – Questionable
LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar – Limited – Questionable
DT Alex Carrington – Knee – Full – Probable
RB Zac Stacy – Ankle – Full – Probable
WR Austin Pettis – Ankle – Full – Probable
RB Chase Reynolds – Thigh – Full – Probable
C Barrett Jones – Back – Full – Probable
For the Rams it looks like Tim Barnes will not be able to go and if that is the case, Barrett Jones will be the backup center for Scott Wells. The other major injury that the Rams should be a little worried about is Jo-Lonn Dunbar. Dunbar is good stopping the run and with the Seahawks in town, Dunbar would be a nice piece to have. If not it will be Darren Bates getting the nod.
TE Zach Miller – Ankle – OUT
LB Bobby Wagner – Foot – OUT
C Max Unger – Foot – OUT
CB Byron Maxwell – Calf – DNP – OUT
RB Marshawn Lynch – Not Injury Related – Full – Probable
CB Tharold Simon – Knee – Full – Probable
T Alvin Bailey – Oblique – Full – Probable
DT Brandon Mebane -Not Injury Related – Full – Probable
TE Luke Wilson – Groin – DNP – Questionable
DE Cassius Marsh – Foot – DNP – OUT
DE Michael Bennett – Not Injury Related – DNP – Probable
The Seahawks will head into Sunday’s matchup with the Rams short a few of their key starters, as LB Bobby Wagner, C Max Unger, and TE Zach Miller have all been declared out. Substituting in for Wagner will be linebacker K.J. Wright and Stephen Schilling will get his second start in place of Unger.
That is this weeks final injury report. Also something to note, the Seattle Seahawks will be without Percy Harvin as they have traded him away to the Jets. Let’s hope that helps the Rams get back on track and get back in the win column.
