WR Tavon Austin, G Harvey Dahl out for St. Louis

SEATTLE (AP) -- Wide receiver Tavon Austin and starting right guard Harvey Dahl are both out for St. Louis, while Seattle wide receiver Jermaine Kearse will play despite an ankle injury Sunday.

Austin had been questionable heading into the game with an ankle injury. He did not practice until Friday when he was a limited participant. Dahl is a surprise having not been listed on the injury report all week. Shelley Smith is expected to start in Dahl's place. The Rams are without two starting offensive lineman after Jake Long was lost to a season-ending knee injury last week.

Kearse was the one question mark for Seattle. He suffered an ankle injury last week against Arizona and did not practice all week. Kearse went through pregame warm-ups about two hours before kickoff and has been deemed able to play.
