Seattle’s injury report for Wednesday revealed some good news on the offensive line as left tackle Russell Okung was listed as a full participant and center Max Unger as limited.
For each, it’s an upgrade from last week. Okung missed last week’s game against Arizona with a bruised lung suffered the week before against the 49ers, while Unger has missed the last five games with knee/ankle injuries — a high ankle sprain the bigger issue for him now.
Coach Pete Carroll said earlier this week the hope was that Okung will be able to play against the Rams and that he thought Unger would do all he could to try to make it back for the regular season finale Sunday against St. Louis.
Also listed as a full participant was TE Tony Moeaki, who sat out last week with a shoulder injury suffered the previous week.
Listed as not participating were:
- DE Demarcus Dobbs (ankle)
- RB Marshawn Lynch (back)
- WR Jermaine Kearse (hamstring)
- TE Cooper Helfet (ribs)
- WR Chris Matthews (hamstring)
- CB Tharold Simon (shoulder)
For Lynch, this is business as usual for him to sit out practice. The rest are dealing with injuries and it may be a day or two before more is known about where they are in the recovery process. Carroll said Simon may be able to make it back but that it might be a lot to ask of Kearse.
