LA Rams-Seattle Seahawks Inactives

A couple of surprises, given the circumstances.

The Los Angeles Rams have released their seven-man list of inactive players for tonight’s clash with the Seattle Seahawks:

  • S Maurice Alexander
  • CB E.J. Gaines
  • DE Matt Longacre
  • QB Sean Mannion
  • OT Pace Murphy
  • G Cody Wichmann
  • CB Steve Williams

Alexander had been listed “Out” on the final game injury report, so no surprise there. Similar situation for Gaines who was “Doubtful.”

Some surprises elsewhere. With DE Robert Quinn to injured reserve, I thought perhaps Longacre could be active again. And why is Sean Mannion on the inactives at this point instead of Case Keenum? I’m struggling to come up with a good reason. And Cody Wichmann was your Week 1 starter over Jamon Brown. For him to apparently be a healthy scratch after avoiding the final injury report is odd.

The other major surprise? That with Quinn and RB Benny Cunningham to IR, the two practice squad promotees who fill those open slots, OL David Arkin and DL Morgan Fox, go straight into the active 46-man roster.

Here’s Seattle’s inactives:

  • LB Brock Coyle
  • DT John Jenkins
  • DE Damontre Moore
  • LB Ronald Powell
  • S Tyvis Powell
  • RB C.J. Prosise
  • RB Kelvin Taylor
