Rams Go Outside to Begin Seattle Prep

– The Rams wrapped up practice Wednesday as they begin preparation for Sunday’s battle in Seattle for the NFC West Division crown.

– For the past few weeks, the Rams have been indoors for practice because of weather and because they’ve played in domed stadiums each of the past four weeks.

– This week, though, it figures to be cold and rainy on the outdoor track at Qwest Field. As such, the Rams went outside for the first time in the past few weeks to practice Wednesday. It was rainy and cold and the Rams only did the first portion of the workout outdoors but moved inside about halfway through.

“From what I’ve heard, that’s what the weather in Seattle is going to be like, so I guess it was good to go outside,” quarterback Sam Bradford said. “If it were up to me, we’d be inside all the time, but I think it was good for us to go outside. We haven’t gone outside in a couple of weeks now. We’ve played in domes for the past couple of weeks, so to go out there and practice in the cold and in the wet, I think it was good for us today.”

– On the injury front, the Rams had very little to report.

– TE Michael Hoomanawanui (ankle) worked mostly on the side with head athletic trainer Reggie Scott. He was listed as limited though coach Steve Spagnuolo is hopeful he’ll be able to practice Thursday.

– CB Jerome Murphy has a broken pinkie finger but played through it with a wrap and is expected to be fine for Sunday.

– For Seattle, LB Lofa Tatupu and QB Matt Hasselbeck were names of note on the injury report. Neither participated in Wednesday’s practice. Neither did K Olindo Mare and WR Brandon Stokley.
