ST. LOUIS (AP) -Defensive end Leonard Little will play Sunday for the winless Rams at Seattle despite a sore toe.
Little practiced sparingly Friday after missing Thursday's workout. The injury-depleted Rams (0-6) are off to their worst start since moving to St. Louis.
``(Little) didn't do a whole lot, but he did enough to get himself ready,'' coach Scott Linehan said. ``It's a pain tolerance thing. He'll be ready to go and fine on Sunday. Still, it was a little tender today. He's played through a sore foot before.''
Little sprained the toe when his left foot became caught in the turf in last week's 22-3 loss at Baltimore. He is listed as probable for the Seahawks game.
``I can't leave my teammates out there battling by themselves,'' he said. ``I push off with my feet so it's going to be a pain issue.''
Ten starters have missed games this season for St. Louis, including quarterback Marc Bulger, running back Steven Jackson and left tackle Orlando Pace, who was lost for the season in Game 1.
Bulger will return Sunday after missing two games as he nursed broken ribs, but Jackson (groin) will be out again.
Even before the toe injury, Little was off to a slow start. The 10th-year player has just one sack, registered last week against Baltimore's Kyle Boller. He had 13 last season, second-most in his career, when he was a Pro Bowl alternate.
