The Seahawks will be without running back Travis Homer for Sunday's game against the Rams. Homer, who had a touchdown reception in last week's game, was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report due to illness and a knee injury, but on Saturday he was downgraded to out.
Additionally, the Seahawks elevated receiver Laquon Treadwell from the practice squad for the second week in a row.
Treadwell, a 2016 first-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings, made his Seahawks debut last week, playing seven snaps on offense and two on special teams.
"Hopefully, we will play him more, he didn't do anything to keep us from thinking that," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said earlier in the week when asked about Treadwell's debut. "He looks like a good ball player, he is really comfortable with the game, he has experience, and we can feel that, so it's a good addition for us. I would expect him to be more involved in the next few weeks."
This is the third straight elevation for Jones, meaning that if the Seahawks want him for game action beyond this week, he would have to be added to the 53-man roster. An undrafted rookie out of NC State, Jones has seen significant time on special teams, playing 48 percent of the snaps against Tampa Bay and 50 percent in last week's game against Las Vegas.
