The St. Louis Rams announced their inactive list for today's game against the Seattle Seahawks. For the most part, the list includes very few surprises, filled mostly with the Rams walking wounded, the few players who have yet to make their way to the injuried reserve list. The Rams inactives today also include their two newest additions to the roster.
The list is: CB Nate Ness, RB Cadillac Williams, LB Justin Cole, LB Ben Leber, OT Jason Smith, WR Danario Alexander, DT Darell Scott.
Darell Scott is the biggest surprise. He had been cleared for contact after suffering a concussion. The Rams must not have felt he was ready to play. Ness was just promoted from the practice squad to replace Al Harris. Leber was active last week. It's telling that the Rams went with David Nixon over Leber on the active roster today. Justin Cole is another of the new additions.
Notably absent is Justin King. He tweaked an ankle in practice this week, and it looked like he might not play. Fortunately for the Rams, they avoided sitting one of their more experienced corners.
Seattle inactives are: QB Josh Portis, WR Deon Butler, SS Atari Bigby, CB Ron Parker, T James Carpenter, T Jarriel King, DE Tony Hargrove.
