LIVE UPDATES: Seahawks vs. Rams in season opener on Q13 FOX
ST. LOUIS — The Seattle Seahawks open the season Sunday against the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome.
Kickoff is at 10 a.m. on Q13 FOX with pregame coverage starting at 9 a.m.
The “Legion of Boom” has already taken a few hits: Cornerback Byron Maxwell joined the Eagles as a free agent while Pro Bowl strong safety Kam Chancellor is continuing his holdout. “I am disappointed in this, very much so,” coach Pete Carroll told ESPN and promptly ruled Chancellor out of Sunday’s contest. “And I think everybody should be because he’s been such a great part of our team. It’s unfortunate that it’s come to this, and he’s not here.” Dion Bailey is expected to start in place of Chancellor, who has eight interceptions in 77 career games with the Seahawks.
