Brandon Shell Active For Seahawks' Week 16 Game vs Rams

Right tackle Brandon Shell, who has missed three of the past four games with an ankle injury, is active for Sunday’s game against the Rams. 


The Seahawks will have Brandon Shell back in uniform for Sunday's game against the Rams, though whether he starts or not is still to be determined.

Shell, who missed three of the past four games, including last week's win at Washington, is active after being listed as questionable, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll's answer about Shell a day earlier left open the possibility that he could be dressing as an emergency option. Cedric Ogbuehi started in Shell's place last week and drew praise from Carroll for his play.

"He's got a chance to help us, so we're looking forward to him dressing and being with us," Carroll said Saturday when asked about Shell.

The Seahawks have at times in the past had starting linemen who are dealing with injuries suit up but not start, instead serving as backup options should they be needed.

The Seahawks will be without starting left guard Mike Iupati due to a neck injury. Jordan Simmons, who has already started four games at that spot this year, is expected to start in his place.

Active Sunday are a pair of players who were just activated off of injured reserve, tight end Greg Olsen and defensive tackle Bryan Mone. With Mone back, defensive tackle Damon Harrison is inactive. Olsen's return means rookie tight end Colby Parkinson is inactive. Also active is receiver Penny Hart, who was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.
