Jermaine Kearse recovered from his ankle injury.

Whether he’ll help Seattle bounce back from last week’s offensive performance is another question.

Kearse was questionable entering the game, and coach Pete Carroll said it would be a game-time decision. That usually translates to it being a long shot that he’ll be available, but Kearse has shown himself to be quick in recovery and he’s active for Seattle.

However, Bryan Walters is also active as the team’s fifth receiver, showing there is some reservation about Kearse’s durability.

The fact that Walters is dressed leaves rookie running back Christine Michael inactive along with receiver Percy Harvin, linebacker K.J. Wright, offensive tackles Michael Bowie and Caylin Hauptmann and defensive linemen Benson Mayowa and Jordan Hill.

The Rams inactive players include receiver Tavon Austin, the receiver the Rams chose in the first round. Also inactive: running back Daryl Richardson, safety Quinton Pointer, defensive end Sammy Brown, guard Harvey Dahl, defensive tackle Matt Conrath and offensive tackle Mike Person.
