CHAWK LINES -- Seahawks at Rams

The Seahawks are going to “take our time” with Cliff Avril’s neck injury.

Rees Odhiambo is expected to play just a week after a scary chest injury landed him in the hospital overnight.

Marcus Smith has suddenly become a very important player.

Malik McDowell suffered a “really bad concussion” in his ATV accident in July, Pete Carroll said. McDowell will be examined in a couple of weeks, and Carroll still has not ruled out the team’s top pick playing this season.

Quinton Jefferson broke his hand 20 minutes into his first practice back with the Hawks. He will miss about four weeks.

DeShawn Shead “absolutely has his mind set on coming back in a couple of weeks.”

Russell Wilson said he felt as fast as a “bag of bricks” against the Rams last year. He is healthy this time.

Seattle’s O-line has improved a bit every game. Can it keep it up?

Carroll & Co. are hoping to see the Thomas Rawls of 2015 re-emerge this week.

The Seahawks have recorded a historically unique NFL score every season under Carroll, who loves that tidbit.

Asked about Cam Newton’s disparaging remark about a female reporter’s football question, Wilson said, “I think about the women I have in my life, and they probably know more sports than I do.”
