Rams getting some guys healthy in time for Seahawks

The Seahawks will be limping into this week’s game with the Rams.

And even though Los Angeles lost cornerback Kayvon Webster to a torn Achilles Sunday, they’re expecting to have a number of other players back on the field.

Via Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com, Rams coach Sean McVay said that wide receiver Robert Woods and outside linebacker Connor Barwin are expected back in the lineup after missing games, and tackles Andrew Whitworth and Rob Havenstein should return after they had to leave Sunday’s game against the Eagles.

Also, cornerback Trumaine Johnson is not in the concussion protocol, after being evaluated for a head injury during the game. They kept him out with what they termed a stinger.

Whitworth and Havenstein left the game with knee injuries, though Whitworth returned later in the game. McVay called the media reports on the pair of them “very positive.”

Woods has missed three weeks with shoulder problems, and Barwin had surgery to repair a broken bone in his forearm and missed two games.

With the Seahawks possibly missing two more defensive stars for the game, that’s good news for the Rams as they try to bounce back from their loss to the Eagles.

  1. Rams really need Woods back. It’s been easier for defenses when he’s not out there.

    Rookie Kupp has stepped up in a big way, but he and Gurley have accounted for 73% of the Rams passing yardage the last two weeks.

  2. And the Seahawks are getting injured and distracted just in time for this one. Enjoy the division and good luck in the playoffs LA. Time for the Seahawks to miss the playoffs, cut some undisciplined nutjobs, and reload for another run. Keep Sheldon Richardson, Brown, and Graham…release that fool Bennett…and let’s refocus with a better attitude going forward.

  3. Both teams are going to need as many healthy players as they can. This one will be a slug-fest with the winner being the team that can still field 11 players.

  4. The Rams have always sucked in Seattle…winning there once in the last 13 years. With that being said I think we are going to see a “changing of the guard” in the NFC West IMO. Rams win this game and all they have to do is either beat Tennessee or San Fran in their remaining 2 games to win the division. If the Hawks win the only way they can insure winning the division is by beating the Cowboys and the Cardinals. I like the Rams chances a little bit better.

  5. The Falcons put the first nail in the Sea Gull’s playoff chances. The Jaguars put another nail in it. It is time the LAmbs put a third nail in it and the Cowpies will put the last nail in the casket. RIP the Sea Gulls’ “dynasty.”

  6. LOL. Michael Bennett will not be getting cut after the season. He’s great at what he does, and he does great work in the community. Also liked by his teammates. Give your politics a rest

    Actually, if the Hawks win Sunday, they can “ensure” a division title by finishing the final two games with an equal to or better record than the Rams.

    ________
    …Which is jumping offsides more than anyone else in the league and taking cheap shots while opposing offenses are in victory formation. And his teammates may like him, but he and his protests have been a huge locker room distraction. He, more than anyone else, is the reason the team’s been so distracted and unfocused this year. He’s a malcontent and if the Seahawks were smart, they’d get rid of him next year. Besides, he’s been little more than pedestrian on the field this year. Certainly isn’t playing up to what his contract warrants.

  9. Sweetnlow44…well said. Cutting Bennett is addition by subtraction. Frees up cap space to keep players like Sheldon Richardson and JG. Defensive linemen are easier to find at the top of the draft as well. He can be replaced.
