Barron Active for First Time in 2018 vs. Seahawks

Inside linebacker Mark Barron is active for the first time in 2018 for Sunday's contest against the Seahawks. 

Barron practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. He's been sidelined by an achilles issue for the first four games of the season. Barron is expected to start Sunday's game beside defensive signal-caller Cory Littleton as the Rams' "Mo" inside linebacker.

However, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said the Rams will likely monitor Barron's snaps.

While he did not have a Friday injury status, returner JoJo Natson is inactive for Sunday's contest. With Natson out, safety Blake Countess is expected to field kicks and wide receiver Cooper Kupp is expected to field punts.

Also listed as questionable heading into Sunday, tight end Tyler Higbee is active for Week 5. 

With kicker Greg Zuerlein still out while recovering from a groin injury, Cairo Santos will make his debut as Los Angeles' place kicker. 

On the other side, Seattle defensive end Frank Clark is active today. He did not practice all week with an illness. 

Below are the full lists of inactives for both teams. The Rams current roster stands at 52 players, so the club has only six inactives.
