The availability of St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson and safety O.J. Atogwe against Seattle will be a game-day decision Sunday.
Both players saw limited work Friday in practice. Jackson is nursing a groin injury, and Atogwe bruised his thigh in last week’s win over Washington. Neither player practiced Wednesday or Thursday.
“I’ll have to get together with them to see where they’re at and how they felt,” coach Steve Spagnuolo said of the decision.
Defensive tackle Clifton Ryan will miss his third game because of migraine headaches, leaving the Rams with only three healthy defensive tackles in starters Gary Gibson and Fred Robbins along with undrafted rookie Jermelle Cudjo.
Never miss a local story.
Spagnuolo acknowledged he will have choices to make for his 45-man active roster for the game.
“It’s going to interesting to try and find 45,” he said. “Hopefully some of these guys will bounce back.”
The Rams met the NFL’s sellout requirements for Sunday’s game, avoiding a television blackout in the St. Louis TV market.
49ERS’ LEWIS ABSENT
Starting San Francisco 49ers strong safety Michael Lewis did not attend Friday’s walkthrough practice before the team traveled to Atlanta for Sunday’s game.
Coach Mike Singletary would only say that Lewis was absent for personal reasons. The coach wasn’t sure whether Lewis would rejoin the team for the game.
Rookie Taylor Mays, a second-round draft pick this year, will likely get more playing time after being used on special teams so far.
