The Los Angeles Rams have announced the seven inactive players for today’s game against the Seattle Seahawks at Century Link Field.RSS Feed
No surprise with third-string quarterback Brandon Allen, who reportedly didn't practice all week with an ailing back. Recent practice squad promotes Cameron Lynch, Isaiah Johnson, and Carlos Thompson also are inactive.
On another note, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner, have been cleared to play, news Ram fans were hoping not to hear. Wagner didn’t practice all week due to a hamstring injury he sustained last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
However, the Seahawks other starting linebacker K.J. Wright remains in concussion protocol and will be inactive for the game. This is still a blow to the Seahawks defense that’s been decimated by injuries on the defensive side of the ball with losing three pro-bowlers, Cliff Avril, Richard Sherman, and Kam Chancellor.
The Rams look to clinch not only a playoff spot today, as well the NFC West Division with a victory over the Seahawks. They lost a thriller at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Week five, 15-10 as the Rams didn’t secure the ball with five turnovers with two in the red zone. The team is focused after losing a shootout thriller to the Philadelphia Eagles last week 43-35, with the Eagles clinching a playoff berth. Neither two teams have lost consecutive games this season but something will have to give today unless there’s a tie, which will complicate the playoff picture further.
