Connor Barwin OLB Not Injury Related DNP Full
Jamon Brown G Groin Limited DNP
Lamarcus Joyner S Hamstring DNP DNP
John Sullivan C Not Injury Related DNP Limited
Sammy Watkins WR Illness DNP Full
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related DNP Full

It’s a major positive to see Sammy Watkins return to a full practice from his illness. He’s going to be a huge part for this offense going forward against a defense as strong as the Seahawks. Barwin, Sullivan, and Whitworth are all a go for the game as well, as the veterans got their rest. The main question marks stem from S Lamarcus Joyner, who doesn’t look likely to play this week after registering DNP’s every day, and RG Jamon Brown, who did not practice as well.

Hopefully things clear up on both players, but especially Brown, as the Rams will be playing against one of the best defensive lines in the league.

Now, take a gander at the Seahawks side:

The Seahawks seem to have quite a laundry list here, though a lot of important players (Baldwin, Graham, Sherman, Joeckel) all practiced in full. The big hits for the Seahawks are the three “DNP” players: Earl Thomas, Jeremy Lane, and Cliff Avril.
