St. Louis Rams Strategy and Personnel 2008-12-11
Although coach Jim Haslett said RT Alex Barron "paid his debt to society" after not playing for almost three quarters Sunday because of being late to a team meeting, Barron split time with Adam Goldberg in practice Wednesday.


PLAYER NOTES

--LB Gary Stills has bone chips in his knee and did not practice Wednesday. Stills had the knee drained Wednesday, but is still hopeful of being able to play Sunday. He will have surgery on the knee after the season.

--CB Fakhir Brown did not practice Wednesday because of an ankle injury, but is expected to be able to play Sunday against Seattle.

--RG Richie Incognito did not practice Wednesday because of an ankle injury, but is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

--G John Greco took all the snaps at right guard in practice Wednesday with Richie Incognito watching with an ankle injury.

--WR Torry Holt did not practice Wednesday simply to rest his legs at this stage of his 10th NFL season.

--S Todd Johnson will start Sunday instead of team captain Corey Chavous.

GAME PLAN: RB Steven Jackson has had some of his better games at home, and the Rams will try to run him so they can open up the passing game. Protecting the ball will be the key, considering two key fumbles Jackson had in the second half against Arizona.

Defensively, the goal will be to keep Seattle from getting an early lead. Arizona led 14-0 last week in the first quarter, and for the season, the Rams have been outscored 117-47 and 21 of the Rams' first-quarter points came in a 34-14 victory over Dallas.

MATCHUPS TO WATCH: Rams interior line vs. Seahawks DTs Brandon Mebane and Rocky Bernard -- The Rams have to win these matchups to establish the run and limit obvious passing situations.

Rams defense vs. Seahawks QB Seneca Wallace: Assuming Wallace plays, the defense will have to be disciplined and keep Wallace from making plays with his arm and legs.

INJURY IMPACT: The Rams' special teams have been one bright spot this season, but there could be some adverse effect this week with S Todd Johnson starting and Gary Stills bothered by a knee injury. Johnson won't play as much on special teams, so others will have to pick up the slack.
