Rams won't have to worry about Seymour
By Mike Sando
OAKLAND, Calif. -- The St. Louis Rams might be catching a break in Week 2.
Starters Robert Gallery, Michael Bush and Richard Seymour will not play for the Oakland Raiders. Gallery's absence weakens an already suspect offensive line. Bush, who would share time with Darren McFadden, remains sidelined. Seymour is the most established player on the Raiders' defensive line.
The Rams will be without starting defensive tackle Clifton Ryan, who did not make the trip after experiencing migraine headaches.
Inactive for Oakland: Walter McFadden, Hiram Eugene, Travis Goethel, Chaz Schilens, Seymour, Gallery and Bush. Former Rams backup Kyle Boller is the third quarterback.
The Rams released third quarterback Thaddeus Lewis to help them juggle injury issues in the secondary. Cornerbacks Justin King and Kevin Dockery are inactive, as are Fendi Onobun, Chris Chamberlain, Brandon Gibson, John Greco, Michael Hoomanawanui and Ryan.
