As expected, offensive guard John Moffitt (knee) will not be active for today’s game. Moffitt did not practice after re-injuring his surgically repaired knee in Monday’s game against Green Bay.

With Moffitt out, Paul McQuistan will move to right guard, and James Carpenter will get his first start at left guard.

Charly Martin also is a surprise addition to the inactive list. With Doug Baldwin returning, Martin’s snaps will be reduced, and Ben Obomanu is a better special teams players right now.

Linebacker Leroy Hill (calf) is active today.

For St. Louis, running back Steven Jackson (groin) and offensive tackle Wayne Hunter (knee) are active for today’s game.

Here’s the full list.

WR Charly Martin
DB Winston Guy
DB Danny Gorrer
DB Byron Maxwell
OL John Moffitt
DT Jaye Howard
DE Greg Scruggs

St. Louis
QB Austin Davis
RB Isaiah Pead
S Matthew Daniels
DT Matthew Conrath
OT Rodger Saffold
DT Jermelle Cudjo

    Eric, so it is his knee from last year. Too bad. I was really hoping to see, what looks like will be their “long range” starting o line today: Okung, Carp, Unger, Moffitt, Breno. But injuries again derail.

  2. Agreed, Duke. Thank goodness for the depth of this O line. First time in years that injuries can be overcome by depth and consistency.

    Looking forward to seeing Malcom Smith get some work behind Hill at WLB. He could add some more pass rush aimed at the Ram’s gimpy weakside.

    Also, with Winston Guy out, we might see a bit more of playmaker Jeron Johnson. Another big play DB.

  3. Another interesting note about this game. Seahawks have been one of the youngest teams in the league the past couple of years. They are currently the 7th youngest. We’ve seen the many discipline problems and mental mistakes (false starts, delay of game, etc) that come with a team this young.

    Well, the St Louis Rams, after Jeff Fisher’s recent overhaul, just went from being one of the oldest teams in the league to the youngest. The Seahawks should be able to take advantage of that inexperience today.

    I like Fisher. He’s a couple years behind SEA in the rebuild, but has a QB to start with. Still, they have some holes to fill and will need an RB soon.

    Sure would like to see Scruggs spend less time on the injury list. Could have something there if he can stay healthy.
