All Rams present and accounted for (eventually) at last practice

For the second successive day, each and every Ram made it to the field Friday for the final practice of the season.
All those who appeared on the injury report through the week participated fully Friday and were listed as probable for Sunday's game in Seattle: CB Cortland Finnegan (thigh), RB Steven Jackson (foot), LB James Laurinaitis (back), C Scott Wells (knee), S Craig Dahl (knee) and WR Austin Pettis (shoulder).
Taking attendance took a little longer than usual, though, as members of the offensive line, running back, special teams and wide receiving units switched uniforms.
Steven Jackson's 39, for example, looked shrunken on Daryl Richardson; Richardson's 26 looked a bit too tight for Jackson's frame.
"They're messing around. They had fun," coach Jeff Fisher said. "It was a good solid week of practice. ... They understand how important it is to have fun."
Kicker Greg Zuerlein switched his number 4 for Brandon Gibson's 11. Gibson wore No. 4 in college at Washington State. Zuerlein wore No. 16 at Missouri Western, so he pulled a double-switch with Danny Amendola.
The prank appeared to start with the offensive line. Even with the proper number, it's hard enough to tell them apart.

A victory against Seattle would give Fisher 150 in his NFL career, third among active coaches. He trails the Patriots' Bill Belichick (185) and the Redskins' Mike Shanahan (163).
