Bobby Engram's thyroid problem -- which is still a little mysterious -- is apparently serious enough for Coach Holmgren to bench the receiver for Sunday's divisional showdown against the Rams.
Deion Branch will be making his first on-the-books start for the Seahawks, at split end. This means Nate Burleson most likely will take Engram's slot in the, um, slot.
Amongst all this injury misery, however, is the positive news that Boulware, Babineaux and, of course, Jerramy Stevens are cleared to play on Sunday, and there's even a chance -- albeit a small one -- that Marcus Tubbs will be starting as well.
More on this as it becomes more than this.
