WR Tavon Austin, G Harvey Dahl out for St. Louis
Wide receiver Tavon Austin and starting right guard Harvey Dahl
are both out for St. Louis, while Seattle wide receiver Jermaine
Kearse will play despite an ankle injury Sunday.
Austin had been questionable heading into the game with an ankle
injury. He did not practice until Friday when he was a limited
participant. Dahl is a surprise having not been listed on the
injury report all week. Shelley Smith is expected to start in
Dahl’s place. The Rams are without two starting offensive lineman
after Jake Long was lost to a season-ending knee injury last
Kearse was the one question mark for Seattle. He suffered an
ankle injury last week against Arizona and did not practice all
week. Kearse went through pregame warm-ups about two hours before
kickoff and has been deemed able to play.
