Week five has arrived ladies and gentlemen, and the inactives have dropped for the game. Take a look at the Los Angeles Rams inactives:

Wow, in a bit of shocker Maurice Alexander is inactive, alongside fellow starting S Lamarcus Joyner. This could spell some potential troubles for the Rams on their back-end, though John Johnson has looked good in limited time, and Mo has been struggling. It’s still surprising that he’s getting the inactive tag, because he did not show up on the injury report all week, leaving us to presume this is a benching of epic proportions.
Here are the Seattle Seahawks inactives:

The Seahawks are not missing many starters. DE Cliff Avril will miss the game as an inactive (which seems a lot more serious than just this week), and starting CB Jeremy Lane will also be held out. Outside of that, the Seahawks will lose some RB and OL depth, though they look to be relatively near full strength with most of their injured players from throughout the week ready to go (Earl Thomas, Jimmy Graham, Richard Sherman).
Strap up boys.
