Rams, Seahawks already going deep on line

September, 21, 2012
The San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals have started the same five offensive linemen through two games of the 2012 NFL season.

That doesn't sound too impressive, but the Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams should be envious. Both teams have already had seven players start on their lines, including two apiece at left tackle. And it's only Week 3.

Seattle expects to have left tackle Russell Okung back from a bruised knee when Green Bay visits CenturyLink Field on Monday night.

The Rams are expected to be without left tackle Rodger Saffold for the next month or so. They'll have a backup left tackle against Julius Peppers and the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

St. Louis might find inspiration in the Seahawks' experience at Soldier Field last season. Seattle limited Peppers to one sack during a 38-14 victory in Chicago with Paul McQuistan starting at left tackle for the injured Okung.

The chart reflects lineups through Week 2 only, excluding the Thursday night game between Carolina and the New York Giants.
