The Seattle Seahawks had seven players miss practice due to injury today.

Receiver Sidney Rice (knee), tight end Anthony McCoy (back), offensive tackle Breno Giacomini (elbow), running back Marshawn Lynch (back), linebacker Leroy Hill (hamstring), cornerback Walter Thurmond (hamstring) and defensive end Red Bryant (foot) all did not practice.

Safety Earl Thomas (ankle) was a full participant. And Marcus Trufant returned to practice after missing four games with a hamstring issue.

For St. Louis, cornerback Cortland Finnegan (thigh), running back Steven Jackson (illness), linebacker James Laurinaitis (back) and cornerback Scott Wells (knee) did not practice.

    I happy to see that Smith is not listed on the report. He’s been playing well since splitting time with Hill.

  2. St. Louis has a chance to be the only NFC West team undefeated in divisional games which is somewhat impressive. Really hoping that doesn’t stand for the team’s sake and for mine. I have a STL buddy and we made a lifetime bet for each Hawks-Rams game with a division title adding another bonus. As it stands now, he owes me a decent amount of coin. The Rams will come to play and they are playing for a winning record but this Seahawks team doesn’t look past anyone.

    I’ve been gone all day. Any news on the Sherman suspension ?

  4. DanielleMND says:

    We should have news on the suspension or lack thereof tomorrow, according to what I’ve read.

  5. The suddenly unstoppable Seahawks are on NBC Sports Network ‘Turning Point’ again tonight. (their words not mine)

  6. If events transpired the way that Sherman explained then that sample should be thrown out. BUT, in Richards shoes I wouldn’t comment on it much in the event that the NFL doesn’t care about following correct procedures. In other words, giving them any nudge in the direction of deciding to come down on him is counter productive.

    Also on the Sherman-Pro-Bowl-non-starter-snub-front… Does the NFL still take at least 1 player from every team? If that’s still the case then Patrick Peterson representing the Arizona Cardinals would make a better explanation than none at all. I agree with others here that fan voting should not factor in the selection. If you want to name an ALL FAN TEAM then do that separately.

    Generally I don’t care about the various awards and media darlingships of particular NFL players or markets, cities, etc. I just want our first Seahawk Superbowl victory and those awards don’t get you that. The reason I liked the Pro Bowl selections in the past is that the players and coaches know who really deserves it( even though snubs still existed). That said, in the 3 headed offensive rookie of the year battle, they all deserve it. At least 8 different rookie QBs have started and won a game at some point this season. The young gun slingers are impressing.

  7. How serious is Thurmond’s hamstring injury for him to be out this long?

  8. princeaden says:

    Thank you Danielle.

  9. I think Sherm’s snub means he will be suspended tomorrow.

  10. Ewalters7354 says:

    If Sherm does get suspended (which I believe he will) things are gonna get ugly…

  11. DanielleMND says:

    If there was a tainted sample, then Sherman should sue if he gets suspended.

  12. Ewalters7354 says:

    Agreed.I say tainted sample or not,they broke protocol, which in turn should have resulted in a retest.But Roger Goofball Goodell is too stubborn to actually listen to whomever is talking.I don’t think just calling the tester and asking if he remembers such a thing is a good idea Hopefully Sherm’s team has dug hard enough to find concrete evidence.

  13. “I bet you I’ll be on the first-team All-Pro. That means more to me.” – Richard Sherman

    I was thinking the same thing. All-Pro is a much more prestigious reward these days among NFL players. The pro bowl might as well be phased out of existence like Goodell wants. It’s the biggest sham of an exhibition that there is these days in pro sports.

  14. I think you’re right, mocarob. Sherman was likely voted onto the team, but kept off the list because he is being suspended.

  15. DanielleMND says:

    Sherman is a Pro Bowl first alternate, so he isn’t being kept off the list. I think being accused of using PEDs is what lowered his vote count.

  16. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Funny how the NFL won’t trust the players by testing them, however they trust the player to take the cup into a private place to give them a sample?
    How easy would it be to simply crack the cup at that point. Lol. Sherman may not get the suspension reversed however he is set up nicely to get his lost wages back.
    I don’t know if this was a street smart move on Shermans part, ( coming from Compton ) or a Stanford smart move, but it sure was a smart move by him regardless.

    BTW- Remember how some were concerned, ( and I was one of them ) about how the Seahawks would hold up without Browner? Well looks like they held up just fine imo. So I doubt it will be a monumental huge loss with Sherman out either.

  17. This was the soft part of the schedule and Sherman is a much better player than Browner.

    Not having Sherman will be a huge loss on the road against any of the 4 division winners.

  18. Ewalters7354 says:

    What makes Sherm so good is how he breaks down his opponent.The guy is so intelligent. Some games it just seems he knows the other team’s playbook.So I believe that will be a huge blow.Good thing is we still have ET and Bam Bam.Along with Browner coming back.
