The season is over for Rams defensive end Robert Quinn and running back Benny Cunningham.

The Rams placed the veterans on injured reserve Thursday, about five hours before a scheduled kickoff against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.

Quinn was in concussion protocol the last few weeks but had been practicing. Cunningham sat out the last game against the Atlanta Falcons because of a neck issue.

The Rams promoted offensive lineman David Arkin and defensive lineman Morgan Fox from the practice squad.

Quinn, a two-time Pro Bowl player, has struggled with several injuries and conditions this season after off-season back surgery. He has 10 tackles, including four sacks.

A shoulder issue sidelined Quinn a few games before midseason. The day after the Rams’ Nov. 13 victory against the New York Jets, Quinn was hospitalized after relatives called paramedics because of what they believed to be a seizure. Quinn said later he was told he had suffered from dehydration.

Cunningham rushed for 101 yards and caught 16 passes for 91 yards. He averaged 27.2 yards per kickoff return.
