Jones inactive; Jackson active

The Rams have come out on top in the tale of two running backs. Julius Jones, the Seahawks’ leading rusher, is inactive today because of the bruised lung he got two weeks ago. Steven Jackson, the NFC’s leading rusher, is active for the Rams despite sitting out all week with back spasms.

That means Justin Forsett will get his second consecutive start for the Seahawks.

Jackson, meanwhile, won’t have Mike Karney, the fullback from Kentwood High School; or the right side of his offensive line – tackle Jason Smith and guard Richie Incognito. All three are injured, and inactive.

Also inactive for the Seahawks:

S Jamar Adams

OG Mike Gibson

OG Mansfield Wrotto

TE Cameron Morrah

DT Red Bryant

DL Derek Walker

3rd QB: Mike Teel

Also inactive for the Rams:

CB Danny Gorrer

OG Roger Allen III

WR Jordan Kent

RB Chris Ogbonnaya

Kent was with the Seahawks last season, while Ogbonnaya was signed off the practice squad on Saturday just in case Jackson could not play. Right guard Adam Goldberg moves to tackle for Smith, with Mark Setterstrom stepping in at guard for Goldberg — who was starting at guard because Incognito is out.
