Seahawks at Rams Inactives: Rookies C.J. Prosise, Germain Ifedi Among Seattle Players Sidelined

LOS ANGELES – Rookie running back C.J. Prosise is inactive for the Seahawks’ Week 2 game against the Rams, the result of a wrist injury sustained in last week’s win over Miami. Prosise had been listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report with what Seahawks coach Pete Carroll described as a cracked bone in his hand.

Prosise being sidelined means rookie running back Alex Collins is active after being inactive last week. Rookie guard Rees Odhiambo is also active for the first time.

Out for a second week in a row with injuries are tight end Nick Vannett and guard Germain Ifedi, who are both recovering from ankle injuries. J’Marcus Webb is again expected to start at right guard in place of Ifedi.

Among the players who will suit up today is cornerback Neiko Thorpe, who signed on Tuesday. Carroll said Thorpe was signed in part to help on special teams, so he’ll likely have a role there this week.

Sunday marks the Rams’ first regular-season home game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum since 1979, a span of 13,427 days. The game is a homecoming of sorts for Pete Carroll, who coached USC for nine seasons in this building, as well as several players from the area.

Throughout their history, the Rams and the Seahawks have played each other 35 times with the Seahawks winning 21 of those games. This Sunday the Seahawks will take on the Rams in Los Angeles for the first time since 1988.
