David Hawthorne expected to play

RENTON, Wash. -- Seahawks linebacker David Hawthorne is expected to play Monday night against the St. Louis Rams after fully participating in practice on Saturday.

Hawthorne was a game-time decision against Philadelphia last Thursday and had a team-high six tackles and a 77-yard interception return for a touchdown.

The extended time off helped him recover and return to practice by the end of this week.

Hawthorne has been playing all season with a MCL tear in his left knee. Hawthorne suffered the injury in the second game of the preseason and missed the next three games, including the season opener against San Francisco.
