Thursday Night Football Injury Report
The Rams are healthy with no key injuries heading into this divisional matchup.
The Seahawks are in good shape, too, and everyone is trending toward playing except for LT Duane Brown (biceps), who hasn’t practiced as of Tuesday. That said, Brown followed a similar schedule in Week 4, and he ended up suiting up, so it could just be the Seahawks limiting him with the shortened week. — Justin Bailey

Biggest Mismatch for Rams-Seahawks
Todd Gurley vs. Seahawks’ Run Defense
While Gurley’s usage has greatly decreased this season, he’s historically dominated the Seahawks. Since his 2015 rookie season, Gurley has averaged more than 100 total yards and 1.3 total touchdowns against Seattle. And since Sean McVay’s arrival in Los Angeles, Gurley’s production has been even better, especially in Seattle.
In the Rams’ blowout loss to Tampa Bay at home, Jared Goff turned the ball over four times with a near-record 68 pass attempts. Look for the Rams to feature a more conservative game plan with Gurley’s track record of success against the Seahawks.
