J’Marcus Webb is likely to get his second straight start at right guard for Seattle in place of first-round pick Germain Ifedi.

Webb started in place of an injured Ifedi last week for Seattle’s season opener against the Miami Dolphins. After struggling against Ndamukong Suh last week, Webb will be tasked with trying to block Aaron Donald in the Los Angeles Rams home opener.

“Still learning how to do it, which is a big improvement from last week,” offensive line coach Tom Cable said of Webb. “Had some struggles but I think he’s better this week for sure.”

Ifedi had been the starting option at right guard from the moment he was drafted. Along with center Justin Britt and left guard Mark Glowinski, Seattle’s interior three linemen played strong throughout the preseason. Ifedi’s ankle injury in practice stunted that progress. While he hasn’t been ruled out, head coach Pete Carroll admitted it’s unlikely he’ll be back in time for the Rams.

“It’s going to be a challenge for him to make it back this week,” Carroll said. “I don’t think he’s canceled it out yet, but we’ll see what happens.”

Ifedi did not participate in the team’s practice on Wednesday.

  1. ” i see ball, I throw ball ” that picture is hilarious! This guy is a STUD!!! He got rolled up on in practice and has a high ankle sprain. He’s played very well and helped establish a new attitude on the Oline. He might be slightly out of full game shape since he’s never played one yet in the NFL. But the guy is a brawler type he kicks ass and takes names just need to keep knee bend and no reaching and this dude is pro bowl ready.

    Except the MULTIPLE pro bowlers on the Seattle Defense have repeatedly said how good he is already, enough where they have scuffled with him numerous times out of frustration. Keep thinking you have a clue though.

  4. I love trolls who spit non sense only to be smacked into place. Seattle is usually drafting 25th or later because of the success.

    Last year – Tyler Lockett, Frank Clark and Thomas Rawls.

    This year – Jarren Reed , Jermaine Ifedi and CJ Prosise, Quinton Jefferson showing potential.

    2013 – The only I consider lacking still produced Christine Michael, Luke Willson and too bad they had no room for Spencer Ware.

    If Seattle is missing, I want to see this teams that are hitting it in the drafts.
