The Seahawks have been without several starters since coming off the bye week and that won’t change for their Week 10 trip to L.A. to take on the Rams.
On Friday, Seattle ruled out Shaquill Griffin, Ethan Pocic, and Bryan Mone, all of whom had been expected to miss the Rams game. That trio were joined by eight players deemed questionable ahead of Week 10.

While Quinton Dunbar was among those questionable, he will not face Los Angeles as Pete Carroll told reporters Friday that Dunbar is unlikely to even make the trip to Southern California. Similarly, Benson Mayowa, who is also questionable, is unlikely to play.

However, there was some good news mixed in. K.J. Wright, who suffered an ankle injury against the Bills, will be good to play in Week 10. Both Carlos Hyde and Chris Carson, meanwhile, have a chance to play against Los Angeles.
Carroll said there's a "really good chance" K.J. Wright (ankle) will play vs. Rams. He's listed as questionable— Ben Arthur (@benyarthur) November 13, 2020
Pete Carroll said Carlos Hyde (hamstring) practiced today; Chris Carson (foot) ran today and will do so again tomorrow to determine his status for Sunday— Ben Arthur (@benyarthur) November 13, 2020
Finally, with Dunbar and Griffin out for Sunday, the Seahawks will get some cornerback help. Carroll told reporters that special teams captain Neiko Thorpe is ready to come off I.R. and indicated a move would be made ahead of Sunday.
Carroll says Neiko Thorpe is ready to return. So expect a roster move there to get him back on the 53.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) November 13, 2020
Seattle will again be shorthanded in Week 10, but their first meeting against the Rams in 2020 should see Thorpe’s return and a debut for Damon Harrison.
