Seahawks' Kenneth Walker Expected to Play Sunday vs. Rams

Kenneth Walker is expected to play Sunday for the Seattle Seahawks, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma New Tribune reports.

Walker missed most of practice this week as he is still dealing with an ankle injury and illness. Walker doesn’t have an injury designation and is expected to start Sunday versus the Los Angeles Rams.

The Hawks will also hope to have Tyler Lockett available for this contest. Lockett was in and out of the win versus the New York Jets last week due to a leg injury. He won’t be 100% healthy for this game but is expected to play as well.

The Seahawks are still in the hunt for the final playoff spot in the NFC. They need a victory over the Rams and a loss by the Green Bay Packers to the Detroit Lions. However, the NFL did the Hawks no favors when they moved the Packers game to Sunday night. This means the Lions will know their fate before the start of the game. If the Hawks defeat the Rams, the Lions are eliminated from playoff contention and could lose their edge versus the Packers.

The Seahawks are -6-point favorites (-110) versus the Rams in this contest and are -260 on the moneyline. The game has an over/under of 41.5, over (-110), and under (-110). You can find the lines and props for this game and all others on the FanDuel Sportsbook.
