Around the NFC West: Robinson rests knee

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times says newly signed Seahawks receiver Koren Robinson left practice with a sore knee. Robinson did not appear to be limping later in the day.

Bill Coats of Around the Horns says the Rams expect cornerback Ron Bartell to play Sunday despite missing practice with an abdominal injury.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee says 49ers tackle Jonas Jennings is embarrassed to be missing time with yet another injury. So much for that strong training camp Jennings enjoyed.

Mike Tulumello of the East Valley Tribune says the Cardinals' situation at nose tackle might be stabilizing now that Gabe Watson is back at practice.

Frank Hughes of Seahawks Insider quotes offensive coordinator Gil Haskell as saying Courtney Taylor will continue to start at receiver. Also, Haskell expects rookie tight end John Carlson to catch between 40 and 50 passes this season. Carlson already has 10 receptions.

Clare Farnsworth of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer says ESPN's Kenny Mayne will raise the 12th Man Flag before kickoff at the Rams-Seahawks game Sunday. Mayne lives in the Seattle area.

Also, the NFL's official injury report says right tackle Sean Locklear participated fully in Seahawks practice today. A knee injury sidelined him for the first two games.
