Four of the Seahawks' biggest-name players --- Michael Bennett, Kam Chancellor, Russell Okung and Doug Baldwin ---
Four of the Seattle Seahawks’ biggest name players — defensive lineman Michael Bennett, receiver Doug Baldwin, left tackle Russell Okung and strong safety Kam Chancellor — were all listed as questionable to play against the St. Louis Rams Sunday on the team’s official injury report released Friday.
Bennett and Chancellor are each among seven Seahawks named earlier this week to the Pro Bowl while Baldwin and Okung were alternates.
Listed as out is tailback Marshawn Lynch, who will miss his sixth straight game with an abdomen injury that required surgery on Nov. 25. And listed as doubtful — officially meaning only a 25 percent chance of playing — are tight end Anthony McCoy (ankle) and defensive tackle Jordan Hill (toe). Neither participated in practice earlier this week — Hill has not played since the win over the Steelers on Nov. 29 while McCoy missed last week’s win over the Browns.
Bennett was a limited participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday but he often takes rest days during the week and has been listed on the injury report in the past with the toe injury, which has nagged him much of the season and which he re-aggravated against Baltimore.

Bennett has not missed a game since 2011 and has played in all 46 regular season games since coming back to Seattle prior to the 2013 season, including starting all 30 the last two years. He also has played in 719 of a possible 882 snaps this season, 81.5 percent.
Baldwin is dealing with a hamstring issue that has caused him to sit our practice all week. Coach Pete Carroll said on Thursday that he thought Baldwin would be able to play but that a final decision might not come until gametime.
Seattle has just four receivers on its 53-man roster and could add one by Saturday to increase the depth with Baldwin questionable (Jermaine Kearse is also listed as probable with a calf injury but was a full participant in practice on Thursday). One possible candidate to be added is Kasen Williams, a former Skyline High and UW star who has been on the practice squad all season. Seattle has three other WRs on its practice squad — Deshon Foxx, Douglas McNeil III and Antwan Goodley.
Okung suffered a calf injury last week that caused him to sit out the fourth quarter against the Browns. He will be replaced by Alvin Bailey if he cannot play.
Chancellor has not practiced since injuring his pelvis/tailbone in the win at Baltimore. Kelcie McCray replaced Chancellor for the win against the Browns and will get the call again if Chancellor can’t go.
Cornerbacks Jeremy Lane (knee) and DeShawn Shead (ankle) were each listed as probable.
